What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
The academics are rigorous RIT is not a place to take your academics lightly. How good your social life is depends on what your looking for. If your a geek you'll fit right in but if more of a party person it will be harder for you to find your niche.
Ernesto from Inglewood, CA
RIT accepts a lot of people, but not many stay.
It's not because the brilliant computer labs, gym, pool, libraries, pleasant dorms and grounds, or the other great amenities are dissatisfying...
It is because RIT is a genuinely challenging, hands-on school that may not be for everyone.
