Last Thursday was ROAR day. It stands for “Raise Our Annual Responses.” Essentially, only half of everything that’s paid for from RIT comes out of tuition -- the rest comes from donations, whether it’s from alumni, staff, friends, family, or even current students.
We were able to donate any amount we chose, and President Destler pledged to match that amount (up to $100). You could specify where the money went to (a specific department or organization) or just let RIT decide.
However, the most important part would have to be the free ice cream and sunglasses you get for donating.
In addition to ROAR day, there is also a brand-new ROAR app! That’s right. If you’ve got an Android phone, you can download it right now! (iOS version coming soon).
If you want to see it in action, check out the video below!
