    No experience with imaging science, though I know they're known for it.

    My daughter did College and Careers too! It takes place from Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon and it's a great introduction to RIT and to college life. There's a complete parallel program for parents, during which I had the opportunity to sit down and talk one-on-one with several faculty members, eat in the main dining hall, etc., etc. The kids signed up for 3 one-hour "classes" in a variety of topics taught by professors, sleep in dorms, and have a great evening program to have fun on Friday night.
    I thought it was a really good deal for $145 per student; parents' program was free.

    We loved Colleges and Careers. It's what swayed our D to RIT, and introduced her to a previously unknown major. My S (HS class of '16) will be attending C&C too!

    Because our son who is HS class of '17 was with us we didn't do many of the parent programs, but instead explored Rochester. Nice little zoo, fun 'beach' area. When D was with us we also visited Eastman House, the home of George Eastman of Kodak fame. That was interesting too. The weekend convinced all of us that Rochester in general and RIT in specific was a good choice. Of course, then she still applied to some completely different small liberal arts colleges, but in the end she decided RIT was the best fit.

    Have a good trip to Union @smokinact, at least the weather should be good and the foliage is about at peak.
