My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

I went online searching for schools that have excellent photography programs. One school that consistently showed up on lists was Rochester Institute of Technology. The school has produced some talented photographers including RIT alumnus David Carson, who won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for his coverage of events in Ferguson MO while working for St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Carson is one of eight RIT graduates who have won a combined 12 Pulitzer Prizes.
Rochester Institute of Technology is a private institution that was founded in 1829 located in suburban Rochester NY in an area called Henrietta, NY. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 12,607, its setting is suburban, and the campus size is 1,300 acres.
Despite its name, the Rochester Institute of Technology offers programs in the liberal arts, art and design, and business, in addition to science and technology. Co-ops – paid, full-time work experiences – are an important part of an RIT education. For some majors, co-ops are required; for others, they are encouraged.

RIT sponsors college athletics on the NCAA Division III level. They have produced a number of professional lacrosse players.
