On March 5th and 7th, RIT Croatia honored 66 students from
the Dubrovnik campus and 100 students from the Zagreb campus for achieving
academic excellence. This year, the RIT Croatia students from the Dubrovnik
campus celebrated at Lalezar Restaurant in Hotel Libertas Rixos and Zagreb
students enjoyed their night at Restaurant Lido!
The dean’s list celebration at RIT Croatia began in 1998 and since then, there has been over 70 Dean’s list celebrations in the past 22 years! Earlier on, these dinners were celebrated at the home of faculty members and as enrollment grew so was the need to find a bigger space to hold this exciting celebration of striving students.
"I find the events to be very inspirational, and it is great to see the students mingling and celebrating their academic accomplishments with the faculty and each other. I always enjoy hearing students say that they are really applying themselves in a given term as they wish to 'be on my list'. - Don Hudspeth, Dean of RIT Croatia
These events encourage students to push harder in achieving academic success. For their hard work and perseverance, they should be rewarded for the time and efforts that they're invested in pursuing their undergraduate degree. This also gives students, faculty and staff members the opportunity to spend time outside of the classroom and get to know each other better.
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.
