In order to recognize its student helpers and thus mark the student employment week, RIT Croatia organized a pizza get-together for 61 student helpers in both campuses. Aside from their studies, these students are very active in undertaking activities in various areas – from tutoring and working in the library, to conducting diverse communication activities by writing stories or even making videos about RIT Croatia!
„The biggest interest can be seen for the tutor and TA positions", says prof. Ana Maria Šimundić who oversees their work. And if you think that getting a job at our college was easy – well, you need to prove yourself capable of the position you apply for. „Students can express their interest for these positions, but in the end, professors recommend students who have done extremely well in the course previously and who they believe can help other students master the course material.", adds prof. Šimundić
These various employment roles at the college are very beneficial for students because they are opportunities for leadership development. Prof. Šimundić elaborated on this: "First of all, students who work for us learn about how the college functions from another perspective, build meaningful, mentoring relationships with staff and faculty members and take pride in contributing to our community in their various roles. I have seen many positive outcomes for students. It is a unique experience for students to work at the same place where they are attending college, where they get to know and interact with students from different year levels (which they otherwise would not have met). We invest in their growth in these roles and hope that the overall experience drives them to maximize their college experience.”
The events took place in Dubrovnik (April 11th) and Zagreb (April 12th).
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.

Another academic year has started and though we are happy to see our students start and continue to achieve success in their academic lives, a lot of things have changed in just one year. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone's lives globally and made us adapt to what some call the „new normal“.
