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 two full-day activities 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.

Spend one full day at Lock 32 Whitewater Kayak Park where students will learn all of the basics of whitewater kayaking and progress to paddling the stretch of rapids manufactured within this spillway of the Erie Canal. A half day will be spent scaling the bouldering walls at RIT’s own rock climbing gym, Red Barn Climbing. Another half day will be spent learning orienteering by way of exploring the RIT campus using a map, compass, some ingenuity, and a little bit of hustle. The final half-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!
