College Life Rating

There are an incredible number of clubs, intramural sports, and other extracurricular that RIT offers. We have three big events during the school year, one during each quarter. In the fall there is Brick City Homecoming, the winter has Freeze Fest, and there is Spring Fest in the spring. At each of these events there are concerts, comedians, and visiting speakers along with many free events. Although the winters can be long and cold RIT makes an effort to keep students involved throughout the cold months. When the weather is warm there are always students out throwing a football around or biking. RITs social life and party scene is not the same as a typical college, but there is something for everyone here.

College Life Rating

If you fill out the housing form honestly you will be with students of similar interests,study habits,noise tolerance etc. There is always something going on somewhere and people willing to accompany you. The Public Safety people are great & will come to your rescue for all sorts of things ( locked yourself out,need a ice scraper or just have a creepy feeling ).
