When are your open houses? What will happen on my campus visit?

Visiting campus gives you important information to use when making your college decision. When you visit, you’ll get a tour of campus, meet with an admissions counselor and with professors in subject areas that interest you, and chat with our financial aid coordinator. Just like your education at RIT, your visit will be customized to meet your interests.
