This was our first school visit to Rochester Institute of Technology – a popular college choice for that group of Franklin Academy seniors and postgraduates who are passionate about computers, science, and mathematics. Adam Waldie and Peter Dantini, both from the class of 2018, and Aidan Holmbraker, ’17, met us as we arrived on campus. When questioned regarding the transition to RIT, Adam stated that this is a perfect place. He was ready for the academic challenge, and the campus culture is “Franklin friendly.” Adam and Peter have decided to major in computer security while Aidan is focusing on electrical engineering. All three are opting for the cooperative education track which involves four years of classes and four semesters of full-time paid employment directly related to a student’s field of study, resulting in the high likelihood of a great job offer upon graduation. Thus, RIT combines superb academics and real-world experiences. According to our alumni, a lot of students are just like them. At the conclusion of our visit, we drove away extremely impressed by the campus, the program, and the opportunities available for our Franklin Academy graduates who choose RIT.
