    Winter in Rochester is bad. RIT is a great school to attend, for the quality and price you pay. The campus is big but not dispersive, and very safe. The facilities are updated each year, in fact we just built a new hockey ice arena. We have a lot of dining services and shops on campus which make you very at ease if you need anything. But, winters are bad. Maybe it is because I am from south and when I came here, I did not expect to live 4 months in the snow. However, even during the coldest days, the buildings are really warm and the roads are free of snow. I just wish before coming someone warned me about the cold.

    Don't be nervous about going out and seeing the campus on your first few days, even if you have no friends when you get there (I didn't). Just grab your roommate (it's awesome to be besties with your roomie) and head out onto campus. RIT is beautiful and lively at night, and there's tons of great food on campus.

    If you come to RIT, you will have no choice but to work hard. However, hard work does not require the sacrifice of a good time. Through major events like Freezefest and Springfest, to the hundreds of clubs and organizations there are to join, you will never get bored on this campus. We are truly one of the geekiest in our activities but we are also one of the most engaged campuses in the nation. But, if you really want to get a feel for what the RIT community is like, check out our annual Innovation and Creativity festival, ImagineRIT.
