Welcome to the RIT Graduate Student Online Orientation
Greetings RIT graduate students!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the RIT family. We are here to kick off your graduate student online orientation. Welcome Tigers!
RIT is one of the top universities in the nation working at the intersection of technology, the arts, and design. We are a university that is shaping the future and improving the world through creativity and innovation. Thank you for selecting RIT for your graduate education experience.
Whether you are full-time, part-time, or an online graduate student, you will find valuable information and relevant resources presented in the following videos. These graduate orientation videos will be available to you for the duration of the semester for you to review at your own pace.
The dean of graduate education, Dr. Twyla Cummings, and her team have prepared a robust orientation program featuring partners from across campus who, you will discover, are ready and available to aid you in reaching your academic goals.
As we continue to learn from these challenging times, we are committed to continuing to take the steps necessary to keep students safe, and we will work diligently to support your total well-being and academic success. As classes begin, you will find that many caring hands from across campus have been eagerly preparing for your arrival—the start of your journey as an RIT Tiger.
I am proud of what we already have accomplished together in preparation for your first semester at RIT and I look forward to seeing you on campus, or Zoom, or wherever our paths might cross.
Once again, welcome to the RIT family.
