The Right Fit
The Right Fit
Coming to Rochester Institute of Technology is about connecting with other students like you.
It’s a place where you will meet many other students who share the same experiences you did growing up—students you can relate to and who can relate to you. Many RIT students attended mainstream schools. Others attended schools for the deaf. Some grew up in families where they were the only deaf person. Others came from culturally Deaf families. Some prefer to communicate using Spoken English. Others prefer sign language or a combination of speaking and signing.
Students bring a variety of life experiences to RIT, but all have one fundamental thing in common—these students all chose RIT because it was the right fit for them.
Meet some of our students
The best thing that I get from RIT is acceptance from everyone. Faculty and staff understand how to work with deaf people, and I never had that before.
Spoken English and Sign Language
RIT’s large deaf community mixed within a mainstream campus was the ideal situation for me. The unique environment caters to both my general needs and specific needs as a deaf student.
Environmental Science/Science, Technology and Public Policy
One of the best decisions I made was to enroll at RIT. I found my identity here and became part of a community.
