Prospective Student Receptions

Each year, the Admissions Office reviews demographic and market information to determine which areas RIT should hold student receptions for prospective students. The purpose of this event is to educate prospective students early about RIT and to encourage them to apply.

These receptions are held in fall and spring. The target population is high school juniors/rising seniors. Alumni volunteers attend the receptions to assist staff with check-in and participate in a Q&A panel. There is also a student Q&A panel during the event.

We ask that Alumni Volunteers arrive 1 hour in advance to the start of the program to meet with the RIT staff member and answer any questions you may have. We are looking for assistance with check-indirectional support, the alumni panel and clean-up

If you are interested in participating in one of the receptions please email either Mariah McLane Giardino at or Devin Lamb at, or call (585) 475-6631.
