Student TestimonialsFilm & Animation
Being abroad helped me develop more empathy and understanding for other cultures. There are many social, political, and societal things that shape a country and its citizens and I think it's important as an American to understand this and realize how unique every country of the world is.
Student TestimonialsNew Media Marketing
Study abroad taught me that no matter who you are or where you are from, the sky's the limit. Never let anyone tell you that you can't do something or go where you want to go! Believing in yourself will produce unbelievable results. Learn how to get out of that comfort zone and "become comfortable with being uncomfortable".
Student TestimonialsInternational Hospitality and Service Management
I chose to study abroad because I was curious about experiencing the culture of the Middle East. I had talked to people who had gone to Dubai, U.A.E., and was fascinated with what they would tell me, as it was nothing like any other culture I have encountered before. After spending a week there, I can truly say it is the most interesting blend of the very traditional and very modern. I was surprised as to how fast 17 hours on the plane went and how much we got to do for the price we paid for our program; we got to do so much in 7 days! With Dubai being Dubai, I didn't think it would be that affordable!
Student TestimonialsAdvertising and Public Relations
I made lifelong friends most of whom I am still in touch with today. I tune into Australian news online because I find it intriguing and funny. I learned new marketing trends that I was exposed to when I was abroad before it even trended in the US. Also, when I was down in Brisbane, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was filming down at the Gold Coast! How cool is that?
My experience has personally solidified how much value I place on the inclusion of working internationally in whatever job I take post-graduation. It opened my eyes to seeing how affordable and possible life abroad truly is.
Faculty TestimonialsSenior 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.

As both an educator and a professional I have had a number of international experiences. Together theses inform my way of thinking and teaching. As a professor in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences I bring my experiences in a global society directly into my classroom.
Faculty TestimonialsAssociate Professor and Associate Graduate Coordinator Computer Science
I have been privileged to have a wide variety of international experience throughout my personal and professional life, and to be able to share these experiences with my students. As a researcher in robotics, a truly global field, I have traveled to conferences in Japan and across Europe, and have co-authored papers with colleagues in Japan and Australia. These experiences have enabled me to better understand the different types of research and the different goals and motivations across various cultures. As a teacher, I had the wonderful opportunity to lead a study abroad program to Dubr

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.
