All the funds raised were donated to Perica Mijović- Dugi who unfortunately is not in the best health and financial situation. Perica Mijović- Dugi is a former professional basketball player who played for Cibona along with Aco Petrović, Sven Ušić, Andro Knego and others. Dugi contributed a great deal in forming the RIT Croatia Tigers team along with our Alumni. Thanks to his efforts, RIT Croatia Tigers had some great opportunities: games with KK Konavle, KK Croatia, KK Dubrovnik and universities in the region, as well as the opportunity to compete with B2 clubs in the county. Dugi also organized the first sponsorship "Delta Security” where our Tigers club received their jerseys and other basketball equipment, funds for hall payment, travel and judges. Overall, Dugi really contributed a lot, both financially (by securing sponsorships) and professionally (with his experience).

With the start of the new academic year higher education institutions are facing unique challenges that stand to swiftly, thoroughly, and permanently reshape them. When academic year starts with key messages focused around safety of students and faculty, it is clear even to a common observer that students and faculty alike are embarking on a journey like none before.
Quality and excellence have always been embedded in RIT Croatia's DNA. As a global campus of RIT, we are committed to deliver exceptional studying and learning experiences for our students, we well as working experience for our employees.
