RIT is a technical school geared toward technical students. Therefore, the students here weren’t exactly social gods in high school. This is not to say that everyone here wears glasses held together by tape and paperclips, or that we all wear pocket protectors. Chances are, if you are looking at RIT, then you are a bit of a geek yourself—maybe not the full-blown Star-Trek-watching, Dungeon-and-Dragons-re-enacting kind of geek—but you have to admit, you are a prospective tech student.
When discussing the social scene at RIT, there is no getting past the high ratio of guys to girls. Many students complain because they don’t leave their rooms except for classes, food, and the occasional shower. For everyone else, it’s because of often stressful academic environment due to the quarter system that requires them to focus more time on passing and less time finding that mate. If you want to focus on school and get a degree, this is the school for you. However, the ratio has increasingly been getting better due to the fact that the college has been recruiting more female students. Maybe, just maybe, in the distant future we’ll build the ratio all the way up to, say, 50/50. Hey, a little wishful thinking never hurt anyone.
