The Editor’s Note in the March 21, 2008 edition
of the Reporter displays a common fallacy regarding
study abroad, namely that study abroad
is expensive. As the editor, you should have took
more time to check your facts and actually do
some research before printing it.
While some study abroad trips can indeed be
expensive, there are a number that can actually
end up being cheaper than staying at RIT a
quarter. I studied abroad in Germany, and my
costs ended up being roughly the same as staying
here a quarter, except I was off in Europe.
Everyone should visit the study abroad office
and ask them about the price and details of
study abroad trips before assuming it is too expensive!
You will probably be surprised at how
affordable it can actually be.

office in building 13 that you should go to!
