e-Newsletter August 2013

THANK YOU for being one of our most generous supporters. Your continual involvement with NRS means so much to RIT and our students.

The Nathaniel Rochester Society (NRS) consists of RIT's most generous supporters, who provide leadership level financial support ($1,000 or more annually) to the university. NRS donors are recognized by the university for their annual support through a variety of community activities and communications. NRS provides opportunities for supporters to interact with their peers, celebrate exemplary service to the university, and join in the activities and campus life of the RIT community.

From the NRS Staff:
We hope you have savored every minute of this summer season – we know we did. Yet as our students start to arrive, we know it's time to head back to school. We are so excited and have planned a great semester (yes, no more quarters!) of events and special perks for our NRS donors here on campus and in the Rochester community.

If you have any special interests you would like to share or interested in hosting an event of your own, please don't hesitate to contact us.
