A year ago on March 15, 2020, RIT President David Munson sent a note to the RIT community announcing that there will be no in-person classes for the remainder of the semester and encouraging students to not return to campus after spring break.

“Please know that all measures being put into place, no matter how disappointing they may be or drastic they may seem, are designed to protect our students, faculty, staff, and the greater community,” Munson said at the time.

Here is a look back in photos to the start of the pandemic and what quickly became an empty campus.
