Hi! I'm Ally. I'm an RIT Physician Assistant major, graduating this spring!
Each year, over 7,000 students are employed by RIT. I am one of the lucky 50 to be employed by the RIT Engagement Center. Twice a week, I spend my evenings learning about the experiences of other RIT family members: alumni, parents, and friends like you. On these calls, I get to relive your happiest moments, the classes you loved, the co-ops that turned into careers, and the connections that have lasted lifetimes.
I also get to help support students like me, by sharing with you, what I know about how important and necessary it is for the RIT family to give something back. RIT students receive more than $320 million in financial assistance, which includes merit or need-based aid for 100% of our incoming freshmen. Without support from the greater RIT community, fewer students would receive less financial assistance and some may not even be able to attend RIT.
Your support doesn’t just help students with scholarships or financial aid but a whole lot more and you can really support any area of RIT that you’d like. And 100% of your gift goes to the area or fund you designate. Knowing how much my job actually helps other students is the reason I call, and the reason I’m proud to be a student caller.
When I graduate from RIT and begin that next chapter of my life as an RIT alum, I will carry my experiences and your stories with me. I might even pass those stories down to the next generation of student callers. Hard to believe, perhaps, but I’m really looking forward to being on the other end of the call, sitting where you sit, and enriching the student caller’s RIT experience just as you have enriched mine. Please take my call.
