What we’ve accomplished over our brief years at RITI cannot all be measured by a grade point average; it can neither be conveyed with a transcript, nor summarized in a degree. For in addition to our quality education from the classroom, we’ve received an education in life from each other. Since the program attracts people from all fields of work and educational backgrounds, there is usually an "expert" in class for just about any subject and any industry. Everyone in class becomes a resource and is part of your everyday learning experience. It's drastically different from the way things are taught in a scientific discipline.
