Part of being a Software Engineering major means spending a year with Computer Science students learning the basics of computer programming. When I first came to RIT, I knew nothing about writing code but the classes challenged and taught me well and now I feel that I am fully prepared to begin my major. RIT does a good job of preparing you for the classes that matter. You'll be able to get your math, liberal arts and sciences out of the way early so that you can get to the good stuff and excel in your major!

    RIT is a comfortable yet challenging place to go to college. You get into the grove of the college life within a couple of days and can feel the RIT culture becoming a part of you very quickly. However, it stays true to its reputation of providing rigorous and fulfilling education that you can tell you are going to use in your future.

    At RIT, you will find one of the most diverse college campuses in the entire world. Though the name says it is a technical institute, you will never find a greater collection of artists and computer enthusiasts, scientists and writers, and engineers and filmmakers anywhere else. If you are looking for a rigorous academic program in a vibrant campus community, RIT is the place for you no matter where your interests lie.

    RIT is a very prestigious institute with a lot to offer. The most well-known majors on campus are engineering and computer-related majors, but other programs are growing. School spirit could be higher, but a lot of people are fans of the Division 1 hockey team.
