Fall marks the return of in-person global education experiences for RIT students
Atiqa Mohsin thought she had missed her window of opportunity to study abroad at Rochester Institute of Technology’s campus in the United States. Mohsin, a fifth-year electrical engineering student from Pakistan who studies at RIT Dubai, applied to come to the U.S. in the fall of 2020 through RIT’s Global Scholars Program, but the program was cancelled last year due to global travel restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic.
Mohsin’s faculty at RIT Dubai urged her to apply again this year, but she tried not to get her hopes up. She knew that a sudden outbreak or change of policy could throw a wrench into her plans, so she kept her plans quiet until she set foot on American soil.
