International House is one of seven Special Interest Houses at RIT. International House focuses on the exchange of our cultural identities and practices, while also learning to respect one another’s perspectives. We embrace our differences and we open the doors for discussion on topics of culture, attitude, and differing opinions. Whether you are a foreign student studying abroad or a native citizen, born and raised within the United States, you won’t find a more diverse and accepting floor anywhere else on campus.
By becoming an International House Member, there are certain benefits that you gain. First you are able to embrace different cultures and people from all around the world! You will learn so much from your peers about their culture through cultural presentations, recipe sharing, and so much more! You will also be able to communicate effectively with different people and learn to respect all the different cultures you learn about. This will not only help you at RIT, but also long after you leave!
