Dubrovnik / Zagreb, December 8, 2020
This year, which is in many ways challenging, did not discourage students
from holding a traditional charity auction and helping those in need.
This year, the students organized a
humanitarian auction in an online environment, using the AirAuctioneer platform
on which 72 items were exhibited, for which 155 employees, alumni and students
of RIT Croatia competed. A total of HRK 22,007 was raised through the
activities of a "silent" auction, raffle and live bidding through the
Zoom event. The funds are intended for the association SVE za NJU.
The humanitarian auction is one of the extracurricular activities of RIT
Croatia that started more than 20 years ago. It is organized by students every
year and always meets with a very large response from the whole community. In
order to give their contribution to the communities in which they study and
live, students and employees of RIT Croatia donate various items for which they
later compete at the auction. With great fun and atmosphere, the items are sold
during the auction for amounts significantly greater than their market value.
It is important to mention that items are also donated by organizations and
companies with which RIT Croatia cooperates, as well as its alumni.
"Congratulations to students on the successful organization of this
charity auction. We thank everyone who contributed and helped raise a truly
remarkable amount that will allow us to continue implementing our programs. We
are proud of the students and faculty members. You have brightened our holidays
in these challenging times and strengthened our faith in humanity and goodness.
Thank you!” said Ljiljana Vukota, prof. psych., general secretary of SVE za NJU.
"Given the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to hold the event online. The students of our two Croatian campuses organized a very challenging, fun and interactive online project. The result exceeded all expectations! We raised a total of 22,007 kuna and we thank everyone who participated and supported this great initiative ", said Erika Lugarić, a student of RIT Croatia and added: „A big thank you goes to the companies - donors of the items we bid for, which include: Aviva Polyclinic, Bagatin Clinic, Foreo, L'Oreal Adria, Bellabeat, Flixbus, Zmajska Pivovara, Red Bull, Direct Booker, and many others!"
Senior capstone project is the crown of education at RIT Croatia for graduating students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program. Senior year students choose topics based on their own interests, which gives them the opportunity to tackle anything they find interesting and worth exploring. Creating a successful senior capstone project is a complex process which requires a lot of maturing along the way, a lot of problem solving, researching and, above all, a good and firm connection with the faculty member mentoring the whole process.
Eta Sigma Delta (ESD), an honorary society for students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management program at RIT Croatia's Dubrovnik campus, held its induction ceremony to welcome 10 new members on Thursday, April 29 at the Hotel Hilton Imperial.
After an exciting weekend in Dubrovnik, filled with interactive workshops and final presentations done by all finalists, we are happy to announce the winners of the Hospitality Star Search Contest 2022!
As part of RIT Croatia’s celebration of its 25th anniversary, the college organized a creativity competition for its students. Students were invited to produce a video, an image, or a text on the topic of celebrating 25 years of RIT Croatia.
