Since 2019, more than 1,400 Rochester Institute of Technology students have received Performing Arts Scholarships, renewable for up to five years, as long as the students stay involved in performing arts. The students come from each of RIT’s nine colleges, with the majority from engineering and computer sciences. The following local residents received a partial scholarship to RIT this fall to pursue performing arts. Connor Utegg of Portland, a graduate of Brocton Central School, is a first-year student in the Engineering Exploration program and is pursuing instrumental music. Emma Christopher of Gowanda, a graduate of Gowanda High School, is a first-year student in the Biomedical Engineering BS program and is pursuing vocal music. RIT President David Munson has said the best students are students who are also involved in performing arts, which allow them to think creatively. The experience also gives students a leg up with prospective employers who seek the best, well-rounded candidates who can think creatively in a variety of situations. … Morrigan Waller of Fredonia was one of more than 300 students who volunteered on Buffalo State’s annual Bengals Dare to Care Day on Oct. 1. Students volunteered at a variety of community organizations as part of Buffalo State’s commitment to community engagement.
