    HOCKEY!! The hockey games are fantastic, they are so much fun to go watch. If you have a car bring it. There is a movie theater not far off campus as well as a mall, trampoline park, and laser tag place. But the bus system sucks to try to go to these places. Let's be real for just a sec, there are parties too. It's fine to go to parties but don't be dumb. If you're going to drink take a sober friend with you to make sure that you get back to the dorm and don't drink so much that they can't take you back to the dorm without being caught by campo.

    If you're into anything gaming, you will probably absolutely love this school. There are more LAN parties than frat parties. Dota and LoL competitions are king here. There are various clubs you can join. Intramural sport teams, billiards hall, and an entire building dedicated as a gym with pretty nice facilities. Swimming pool, indoor track, indoor tennis, outdoor tennis, weight rooms and 2 hockey arenas (which means year round iceskating).

    RIT really cares about giving back to the students on campus, so there's all sorts of fun things to do. There's a lazy river around the pool, a giant fireplace lounge, free rides to the mall, and tons of on campus activities and events. The school recently built a new ice rink for the D1 Hockey team (Go Tigers!), but kept the old one open for free skate for students. There are hundreds of clubs and organizations on campus, from baja to intramurals to underwater basket weaving. RIT really has something for everyone!

    We're not in a college town, so unless you have a car, it might be a little difficult to find something different to do. But there are buses to the mall on weekends and many clubs and organizations have events that can be a lot of fun! I've been to several improv shows, some dances, and joined clubs to keep myself busy.

    Division 1 Hockey games are a blast! RIT also provides many opportunities for social events and a bus to transport you to the mall and downtown.

    There is a lot to do on campus. Nerds play video games and jocks play sports. The sport programs on campus are great and the facilities are amazing. The pool, track, and gym are really nice and up to date. There are so many clubs to join. There is really no excuse to be bored.

    Joining a club is always fun, and you can try out as many as you like! There is no limit on clubs here. The College Activities Board also has lots of fun things happening every week. I also enjoy going to the wellness facility and working out or going ice skating at the Frank Ritter Ice Arena. Or going to Hockey Games.
