Saturday May 7, 2016, RIT produced its 9th Imagine RIT festival. This festival began in 2008 at the suggestion of RIT president William Destler. It has been a wonderful addition to RIT and the entire campus is one big open house. Both students and faculty alike showcase their work during this 8 hour extravaganza.
