A student project covering Imagine RIT
Imagine RIT is a campus-wide event that showcases the creative and innovative spirit of the students, faculty, and staff at Rochester Institute of Technology. Visitors experience the breadth and interactive presentations, hands-on demonstrations, exhibitions, performing arts, and research projects set up across campus. Since its inception in 2008, RIT photojournalism students have documented the festival for the experience of covering a large event for digital and social platforms with multiple deadlines throughout the day. William Snyder coordinated the student cover original, with various photojournalism faculty adding support.
I began organizing this annual coverage in 2016, making a couple of changes to the format and execution. Image Nation became an official Imagine RIT exhibitor. As such, we moved the newsroom to a more centrally located computer lab so festival goers could watch and interact with the burgeoning journalists.
