Life At RIT
Based at RIT’s international campus in Dubrovnik, Croatia, families will explore Adriatic culture, history and ecology guided tours, interactions with locals, and sampling local cuisine. This one-week, hands-on experience led by RIT faculty and staff will help you build new family connections and contribute to your own personal and professional growth.
Here’s what past participants said:
"Being in a learning environment with my family was a great experience. I enjoyed watching my daughter ask questions and learning about the many new experiences." -RIT parent
"I have always dreamed of going to Croatia, so when I found out that RIT had a campus there, I knew this would be the opportunity. What made it even better was not only could I visit this beautiful country with other RIT students, but I could experience it with my mother." - RIT student
"I never had the chance to study abroad, and it seemed like a great way to experience a little bit of that for myself while my daughter explored it as an option for herself." -RIT parent
"We chose to participate in this program because we thought exploring Croatia would be a wonderful opportunity. Our expectations were exceeded on this trip. I would encourage anyone, that has the opportunity, to participate in this program." - RIT graduate student
"This program is a great way to get families together to meet new people, see new places, and learn new things together." - RIT parent
