If you ask RIT students their most memorable moments in college, often times they''ll say it''s in their first year of living in the residence halls. Living on a floor of residents of different nationalities, talents, and personalities, students will learn about respect and diversity, while making lifelong friends along the way.
Living on each floor in the residence halls are the resident advisors (RAs). RAs are full-time students who work with Residence Life to aid the students living on the floor. They are there to answer daily questions, host social/educational programs, as well as to foster and promote a sense of community on the floor.
Even while college students are spending most of their time learning in the classrooms, there is still room for fun. There is always something to do here at RIT, especially in the 13 residence halls available on-campus, where 3,400+ first-year and returning students reside each year. There is great variety in the academic programs being offered here at RIT, and the same variety can be seen in the residence halls. For example, it’s not uncommon for a student studying computer science to be only two doors down from his/her friend who is studying fine arts photography. An entire floor of residents is composed of different personalities, interests, and talents, and it is this type of diversity that separates RIT from other universities in the nation.
