The 29th Annual College & Careers program at RIT is an amazing opportunity for you to explore career options through interactive academic sessions. These sessions include personal hands-on experience, demonstrations and discussions. Working with our renowned faculty and students you will discover and utilize the state-of-the-art facilities and technology available at RIT. 

This two day career conference is designed to help students, who will be entering their senior year in the fall, gain the experience and knowledge necessary to start making career decisions about their future. 

In addition, College & Careers is a great way to experience life as an RIT college student. You will get to sleep in our residence halls, eat in our student cafeteria and participate in Friday night social activities with other college-bound seniors. 

College & Careers also includes a separate (but optional) program for your parents, which will provide them with information about the college search process, financial aid and more.
