Incoming freshmen participating in the Division of Diversity and Inclusion (DDI) Summer Experience worked on community service projects at the RIT FoodShare, Bern's Closet, the Community Garden (shown here) and more. The four-week DDI Summer Experience helps prepare first-year students from underrepresented populations for a successful transition to college. The students live on campus and take two credit-bearing classes—a first-year writing seminar and a course in college algebra, pre-calculus or intercultural communications. The Summer Experience also provides the students workshops on study techniques from the Academic Support Center, connects them with mentors, allows them to explore regional landmarks such as Niagara Falls and engages them in community service projects.
