RIT Administrators to Live in Campus Residence Halls Jan. 18-20
Immersion experience part of Student Government’s “REAL RIT Dorm Challenge”
Rochester Institute of Technology administrators are about to gain a new perspective on the student residential experience. Twenty RIT decision makers will participate in Student Government’s “REAL RIT Dorm Challenge”—a three-day, two-night immersion experience in the RIT residence halls.
Participants, including RIT President Bill Destler and his wife, Rebecca Johnson, will check-in between 2-3 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 18, at Grace Watson Hall. Resident advisors will greet participants and help unload their vehicles before they are parked in designated student parking lots. From there, participants will move into their rooms. Each will be living with students who volunteered to open up their rooms to a participant.
“The ‘REAL RIT’ programs are designed to connect faculty, staff and administrators with the student experience,” says Student Government Vice President Matt Danna, one of the organizers of the event. “We hope to enhance their perspective on student life so that they can use this experience when making decisions.”
The experience ends with an open forum at 8 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 20, in the National Technical Institute for the Deaf’s Panara Theatre, where some participants will share what they learned from the experience and will answer questions from students.
