FACEtime facilitates face-to-face encounters that develop Friendships, a sense of Adventure, Connections with resources and meaningful Engagement. FACEtime programs are run by RIT’s Outdoor Education department.
This program consists of one full-day activity and three half-day activities. Activities will take place during the day and students will spend each evening and overnight on campus. All activities are suitable for beginners and no previous experience is necessary.
One full day will involve guided hiking at Letchworth State Park, the “Grand Canyon of the East,” where the Genesee River roars through the gorge creating three major waterfalls as high as 600ft! A half day will involve an introduction to orienteering and an exploration of the RIT campus using a map, compass, some ingenuity, and a little bit of hustle. Another half day will consist of scaling the bouldering walls at RIT’s own rock climbing gym, Red Barn Climbing. A final half-day program will involve team challenges that test creativity, problem solving, and teamwork.
Residential Student Fee: $390
