Overall Rating

RIT is a great university. There is a heavy academic focus here, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t find a good time. There are always events being put on by the Campus Activities Board and there are frequently free BBQs and spaghetti dinners. Hockey is the most popular sport here and games are really inexpensive and fun to attend. If you are looking for a great college experience and a wonderful education, but don’t mind the cold, than RIT is the place for you!
