    Riley Kieffer
    Applied Mathematics

    Studied in Dublin, Ireland
    University College Dublin (Arcadia)

    I have always wanted to study abroad. Sometimes it can be seem difficult for STEM majors because there are certain classes that you must take at a certain time, but I wasn't going to let that stop me.

    Alex Levie
    Computer Science

    Studied in Osnabruck, Germany
    University of Osnabruck (SUNY Oswego)

    I wanted to study abroad not only for the adventure, but I was interested in how other cultures taught computer science and what they emphasized compared to the U.S. I was especially curious about this given Germany’s very formulaic approach to education.

    Rachael Daly
    Software Engineering

    Studied in Weihai, China
    RIT - China

    I chose to study abroad because I had never been outside of the east coast before, let alone the continental U.S., and wanted to learn about people and perspectives that I wouldn't have the chance to experience otherwise. I also love history and ancient cultures, so I really wanted to go to someplace with a really deep history.

    Rick Lagiewski
    Senior Lecturer

    RIT has been a special place for me to enhance both my own international experiences and even more so those of my students in the School of International Hospitality and Service Innovation.   During many teaching assignments back-and-forth to Croatia, I was able to experience students studying abroad at both campuses.  It was exciting to see students return from Croatia having a new appreciation and understanding of Mediterranean tourism, post-war hotel development, and the role of the European Union in a transitional economy.

    Dr. Robert Barbato
    Professor, Department Head, Management, IB & Entrepreneurship

    I have taught at RIT’s campuses in Kosovo and Dubai and I have also taught in Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, the Czech Republic, and some other countries. I hope to teach at the RIT campus in Zagreb, Croatia in the future. I have always felt very welcome and appreciated by my International students. Many of them continue to stay in touch with me. The students at RIT’s global campuses are very interested in studying at RIT’s main campus and they want to meet more professors and students from the main campus.
