What is Imagine RIT?

Imagine RIT is an annual tradition at the university. It is best described on the Imagine website:

Imagine RIT: Creativity and Innovation Festival is a campus-wide event that showcases the creative and innovative spirit of RIT students, faculty, and staff. Visitors experience the breadth and depth of RIT through interactive presentations, hands-on demonstrations, exhibitions, and research projects set up throughout campus. Multiple performance stages with live music and entertainment are also a hit with visitors of all ages. Held annually each spring, Imagine RIT is the kickoff to Rochester’s rich festival season.

  • Date & Time: Saturday, April 25, 2020, from 10am to 5pm, rain or shine.
  • Cost: Free and open to the public!
  • Location: Imagine RIT takes place throughout RIT’s campus in Henrietta, NY

The RIT MAGIC Center hosts a FOSS@MAGIC booth to exhibit open source work from students and faculty around campus. If you are working with open source, we want you to be a part of our booth!
