"Being a student at the American University in Kosovo, I always tried to picture what our partner school in the U.S is like and hoped to be a part of it at least once. I am pleased to say that my RIT adventure surpassed all of my expectations.I admired everything: its diversity, size, classes, simply everything. It is a place that is full of innovation, and filled with bright, interesting faculty,students and staff. I have to admit that at first it was scary to come from a little place like Kosovo and adapt myself to a new environment, but in no time the spirit of the tiger kicked in. It is a once in a lifetime experience, and I recommend it to all of you. Challenge yourself, it is worth it! "
