I didn’t expect to enjoy my time as much as I did at RIT. The school is incredible in every area like academia, social life, and especially the co-op system. I wouldn’t be where I’m at today if it wasn’t for my paid internships which propelled me into my career.

Getting a BFA in Graphic Design from RIT is the best choice I've made. I loved the program - although challenging and intense, it was extremely fulfilling to achieve a degree from here. It continues to pay off financially. I highly recommend this program at RIT.
