‘Democrat and Chronicle’ staff and photo students capture a day in the life of RIT

A small army of photographers, editors and reporters from the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle came to campus Feb. 10 to record “A Day in the Life of Rochester Institute of Technology.”

Democrat and Chronicle photographer Will Yurman captures the transformation of Zilvinis Paludnevicius as he is prepared by Jason Roberts for the NTID production of The Rage of Frankenstein.

Their images and stories were featured in a special 12-page section of the newspaper published Feb. 20. Additional words and pictures went into a companion Web site, which is expected to be available online for at least a year.

Besides the work of the newspaper staff, the Web site also includes images shot by a group of RIT photography students.

“The photographers and writers covered a lot of ground in one day and they did a good job finding interesting activities and stories,” says Bob Finnerty, RIT’s chief communications officer. “It’s a real challenge to illustrate every aspect of a place as large and complex as RIT, but they managed to capture much of the unique essence of the university. I think many people will be surprised at the broad scope of the activities here.”
