My name is Rohana, and I’m a Biology major here at RIT. I am originally from India, and I spent my freshman year at RIT Dubai before transferring to RIT’s main campus. Transferring from Dubai to Rochester was a very good learning experience for me. At first, RIT was overwhelming. It seemed like such a large university at the time, but that has changed now. RIT is very diverse as there are many students from different backgrounds, majors, and interests all coming together. At RIT, I have been able to take many enriching classes that have peaked my interest in biology. My professors are also very knowledgeable and friendly. RIT has many options in regard to academics. In addition to pursuing a major in Biology, I am also pursuing a minor in Computer Science. There are many extracurricular activities, and there is surely never a dull moment on campus. I recently joined Recover Rochester, a club that donates excess food to people who need it. So far I’m thoroughly enjoying attending RIT, and I hope this inspires you to consider coming here as well.
Before coming to RIT, I thought it would be amazing to meet students, from all over the world who came to the USA, to exchange their knowledge, culture and work together on research in order to improve the world’s welfare. I have been in Rochester for almost a year and I can’t believe how my expectations have been met.
Being an Egyptian living in Dubai was never so special or different. The same hot, dry climate and mostly, the same culture. But here, everybody is unique in their own way, with their own thoughts, and their distinct backgrounds, the real meaning of diversity exists here in RIT.
As a person who cares about the environment, it is just a dream to study in a school that provides free electric charging stations for e-cars and affordable parking for low emission cars. Here in RIT Rochester it is real! I believe, no matter what your field of study is, you can make some of your dreams true here.
I am a graphic design graduate student, and I studied abroad in Denmark during my summer break. It was a great experience to understand Danish design, which is simple and direct. I studied with all American students from top design schools. We shared stories and became friends. In Denmark, the program made graphic design, architecture, urban design and interior design students working together and critique each other. Graphic design students also had the chance to visit Danish designers and design firms. I definitely gained a lot of knowledge about not only graphic design but also architecture and furniture design. During this time period, we had the chance to go other European countries and enjoy different design atmospheres. I was so happy I took this chance of study abroad.
If you are going to study abroad, I have only one advice,” Make the most of it.” It was a great chance to learn and to see. Explore places, know people, learn a new culture, all these will be great experiences.
My study abroad experience was unforgettable. Being able to study abroad honestly changed my whole perspective on so many elements of my life. It has always been my dream to go to Japan to experience a different culture and to see all I could that Japan had to offer. I learned so much about what I wanted to do from being there, in a sense, I guess, being able to follow my biggest dream helped me realize what I was searching for in life. As cheesy as that sounds, I felt that it was one of my biggest accomplishments! All of the experiences I had in japan helped shaped the person I am now and what I will become. Study abroad gives you so many things that you just can’t get from staying where you’re from. I cannot stress how much I would recommend studying abroad! It will definitely change your life in some way or another.
