I recently bought a new home computer. I was offered various deals for software like Microsoft Office. I smiled and politely said no thank you. The next day I paid a visit to the Digital Den in the SAU and bought Microsoft Office for under $20.
What great benefits we have here at RIT. Did you know that you can shop at BJ’s in Henrietta and receive membership pricing? Just present your RIT ID card to the person at the membership desk. You will be given a membership card to use during that shopping trip.
Looking for a place to walk indoors? There is an indoor walking track in the Student Life Center, next to the Gordon Field House. Enter at the lower level and warm up with a stair climb up to the track. There are even some exercise machines in the corners for some interval training.
What hidden benefits have you enjoyed here at RIT? Please share your discoveries!
By the way, when I bought my computer I was also offered deals on security packages. Once again, I smiled and politely said no thank you. After my computer was set up, I downloaded my McAfee protection for free! Where? Here.
(Note that special software prices are for RIT employees only and you will be asked to sign a use agreement.)
