Rochester Institute of Technology Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (19)
No matter how many reviews you read about schools and colleges, it all boils down to you. How much you are passionate and willing to dedicate yourself to a major will help you decide on where and what you want to do. It all depends on you and how you decide to make out of it. To me, RIT was the one. Attending RIT for BFA in Visual Media Photography was one of my best decision. It had the best flexibility of different courses that I could take. It helped me be able to have a sample taste of different variety "flavors" of class. Through this, after receiving my BFA I realized I wanted to further my education by applying for Master's in Visual Communication Design. I studied Visual Media Photography which is a creative hybrid of graphic design and photography with a hint of coding and marketing. This was so broad, that I wanted to concentrate on visual communication. That is how it lead me to apply for Masters at RIT. RIT itself is different from other colleges/universities. If you are a nerd or you like pokemon, etc no one judges you, because everyone accepts each other for who they are. It is a technology school where people try different experiment and learn and help each other. RIT provides the best for their students and is always there to help those in need when asked. The engineer majors at RIT requires a 5 year program because they need a Internship/Co-op. That way they have better chance of being hired right after graduation. Many incoming freshmen may not know what they want, and I believe that is all right. You can try different classes and courses and then transfer. A lot of my friends are actually transfers from a community college and they love RIT even more then students who came to RIT right away. Hope this helped to those who wanted some insight. Good Luck!
The Rochester Institute of Technology is an exceptional school to pursue your educational goals. The school provides many different majors to pursue, and the campus population comes from a variety of backgrounds and locations. There are phenomenal gym and athletic facilities to take advantage of. The civil engineering technology program is a great mix of theory and hands on application. There are many resources and tutoring opportunities for extra support if needed. I enjoyed my time at the Rochester Institute of Technology and would recommend it to my family and friends.
Rochester Institute of Technology is a great college to attend. It has many great opportunities to get involved in that will help one succeed academically, socially, financially and so forth. It can be challenging, but very rewarding and full of personal growth. So grateful I had the opportunity to attend RIT for my undergraduate studies. RIT felt like home for me since I visited it, and by staying at RIT for four years I had no regrets.
RIT is great for a student who is looking for a technical degree, even if they are majoring in liberal arts. Teachers and students expect everyone to have a basic understanding of technology. If you graduate from RIT with a technology degree, you will easily find a job in your area. The campus is safe and the student services help you with all your needs.
RIT is a wonderful school to attend if you know what you want to do for a career. Each program prepares you with an opportunity to co-op or have work experience in your field. The specificity of the programs/ majors make finding a job after graduation much easier. RIT is a well respected university.
I'm currently in Associate's degree and will graduate in Fall 2016 with Laboratory Science in Technology at R.I.T. I want to continue to BA degree at R.I.T in inspirational Biomedicine with excellent knowledge in laboratory technology skills. Please help me to pursue the dream to make small changes in the world by continuing my education. I'll be appreciated if you help me even for bit. Thank you.
Excellent science college, engineering and computer systems colleges. Nerdy culture and made for those who know what they want for a major and are willing to work for it.
The co-op program is awesome. Half the professors are awful, the other half are somewhere between ok and awesome
Great school with more financial aid than SUNY schools. Focus on science and research, so if you want to go into direct practice and not graduate school, more clinical programs at other schools would be better. Overall, good faculty, staff, program.
RIT is a great school for the technology sector. Many of my friends are highly successful in their engineering or computer related fields. Career suppirt for my major left something to be desired. Great hockey atmosphere too!
