1. GO TO AN RIT PRO FOOTBALL GAME
The rumble and tumble of these macho guys will not only get you stoked about the football season but remind you why you came to RIT in the first place.
2. TAKE BANJO LESSONS FROM PRESIDENT DESTLER
Learn about the man behind the podium while picking up a few chords or two! Only $9.99 an hour! Now that’s a class act for any cheap college student’s penny.
3. ENROLL IN MUSIC THEORY ON FRIDAYS 8 A.M.
Free that inner songbird and let the notes fly! A happy wake up isn’t complete without singing a good old tune when the sun peaks up. Just make sure to bring a lozenge.
4. DINNER DATE AT GRACIE’S
Go cheap. Go hungry. Go together. Nothing says “I like you” more than an invitation to Gracie’s for an evening out. Teriyaki, pizza rolls and rainbow ice cream? What could prove your devotion better than a five — heck, six-course meal for your date? And let her buy!
5. MICROWAVE INSTANT MAC AND CHEESE — MINUS THE WATER
Finals got you down? Floor morale at an all-time low? There is no better way to get the whole gang together than setting off the fire alarm. It’s like a picnic with all the friends and none of the food. But hey, don’t forget about the good ol’ mac waiting for you upstairs. Just hope it’s still hot by the time you get back there.
Tip: Better late than never. Set off the sprinklers in the early a.m. and you will have more friends then fingers to count with in the p.m.
6. HOP ON A CAMPUS TOUR
Think you know this campus well? Thought you knew all the odds and ends? Students wouldn’t believe the new things they could discover if they tagged along the tours. You will never be lost again and you will finally be the friend who knows where the academic-to-dorm side tunnel entrance is!
7. HENRIETTA OR BUST!
You can never have a boring weekend at RIT. With a bumpin’ mall, exotic dance clubs and the cultured art galleries that fill the streets of Henrietta. Memorable moments walking the streets of good ol’ Jefferson will make your NYC friends jealous.
8. VISIT THE BAMBOO ROOM
There isn’t much to say about this campus center room that can’t be already taken from the title. Sometimes a little greenery can get the gears going! Visit the Bamboo room before the year’s out.
9. APPLY FOR A CO-OP IN ANCHORAGE, ALASKA
Unfortunately, RIT students can only enjoy the Rochester winter six months of the year. For all of you looking for a co-op this summer and miss the chill, intern in Anchorage, Alaska where every day is like walking through a wind tunnel!
10. SIGN UP EARLY FOR THE HOUSING LOTTERY WITH YOUR FRIENDS — THEN LOSE!
Being across campus will only strengthen your friendships! Riverknoll and Park Point? It’s a stone’s throw away. Those Riverknoll apartments are basically brand new; the musty smell should fade after a few quarters.
