Adam Chodak from News 8 got the chance to sit down with RIT President, David Munson. In his first TV sit down interview since becoming president, they discuss Munson's plans to help students tap into their creativity, integrate the arts further into RIT's culture and put RIT on a path to ensure growth and continued success.

Last year at this time David Munson was cheering on University of Michigan where had been dean of its engineering school for a decade.

This electric guitar was 3D printed in RIT's AMPrint Center. There's more to the guitar than just looking and sounding cool. Its design - using lattice structures that are lightweight, yet strong - shows the impact 3D printing can have in all kinds of industries. The guitar has even made an appearance in a performance during the Rochester International Jazz Fest.

Guitar played by RIT Engineering Ph.D. student Andrew Greeley.

Love this school! My daughter totally made the right choice! And no matter what problem or stupid question I had, they went out of their way to solve or answer. They make everything really easy and ...they have always been super friendly about it. I feel like she is getting a great education in a great place! I only gave it a 4 because it’s so far away. Wish she was closer lol! � See More

VERY FRUSTRATED with the financial department. We are at the first week of classes and they tell us a totally different number we now owe. At the beginning of the Summer my husband was all set up to t...ake classes at RIT then one at MCC. Since he is part time, we have to fork out quite a lot due to the fact that financial aid will not cover entire cost. My husband just found out he now has to withdraw from his MCC class and is forced to take another one at RIT so we qualify for some sort of aid otherwise we will have to pay upwards of $4000.00 for his senior project alone.....in one day we went from owing $2,000.00 at RIT and $700.00 to MCC to owing RIT $3500 because we won't qualify for aid if he takes one class at MCC.....So sick of the financial department at RIT. You guys are messing with some big numbers people have to pay out of pocket on a very short notice.....most people do not have that kind of money at their disposal at the drop of a hat.....Very disappointed.

It is a good college. 2 stars might be a little low for how good this college is. The only reason to giving 2 stars is that’s how big the drop off is from the hype and credibility this school gets wit...h 5 Star ratings to reality. It’s not a bad school. But you will determine it is fraud in various places. See More

There's a very select few of the staffers that actually care about you. The rest just follow their script, and seem like they couldn't care less about whatever mess they throw you into.

A very eventful place. There is such a vast variety of things to do and see here. The possibilities are endless. Most of the events are free or discounted. But then again, you probably paying for it i...ndirectly some how the the cost going here. Sports are good, food is good, people can be a little shy but are often very nice and cool people once you get to know them. Sports are good. The only thing i dont like is the price. But you definitely get what you pay for. It just depends how much you value it. See More

Attended open house on Monday Oct. 10th. It was very well organized and informative. The breakout groups were great to get more personal discussions which were valuable. It would have been nice for... them to do a campus tour by college rather than needing to do a full campus tour that was over an hour as that is a lot of walking for some parents. The choices at RIT are amazing and the only disappointment was the dorms. They are very small with super small lounges. We did not see a suite so I'm not sure if freshmen even have that option. I asked by the tour guide went on to talk about the apartments for upper class students. See More

Mixed emotions on #RIT I think the community & students rank among the best but #rit_acadaffairs has a long way to go at how they verbally abuse and suspended the students with #invisibleillness or d...isabilities. The support is not there if they cannot see the disability. If you don't fit in their pretty box they get rid of you any way they can. Only 40% of disabled students graduate leaving the other 60% out on curb for garbage pick up. When a complaint was filed with US Department of Ed Office of Civil Rights instead of looking out for the students and choosing resolution they chose investigation instead. This opens the door to a Federal Civil Lawsuit and the very real possibility of losing Federal funds (student loans). Yes they have had a great year but also a big blemish among the disabled advocacy groups in Washington DC & now across the country. We are a nation of bleeding hearts ready to help anyone who needs it but RIT administration behind closed doors doesn't want anything to do with anyone that doesn't fit their specs. They have gone as far as stalking students on Facebook to see how they can eliminate them from the school. See More

This school failed me. They didn't prepare me for the world at all. Don't go here. They don't care about the sexual assaults survivors and they let the offenders back in or on campus.
