No, Just stay away from RIT. It was a blast from 1999-2001, but after that it's dead.
RIT is a great college to go to, butJul 16 2003Computer Science
RIT is a great college to go to, but only if you WANT to work. I am in the IT Major btw. This college is about learning. Everything about it is related to that, at least in my major. Work is hard, but VERY worthwhile. I keep very busy, I have a job as a Computer Lab assistant (for the IT department), and I love it! This college is just a great place, professors are some of the nicest, and most understanding people I have ever met. I have only come across ONE professor I didn’t like (Sonstein, he is lazy to the extreme)! The only bad thing is the social life. I am not into partying though because I am usually studying, but there is stuff to do. There are two pool halls, one with an arcade and lots of other stuff like that. If you are into drinking the only place for that is in Colony Manor, even though technically it is a dry campus. If you are unsure about joining the IT program, it comes down to two questions. Do you ENJOY to do work in this field, and are you willing to work your but off. If yes, come to RIT.
