The campus community helped turn up the volume on RIT’s annual fundraising effort by supporting ROAR Day. The fourth annual Raise Our Annual Responses initiative took place on Oct. 22, which launched the annual Fund for RIT campaign. 

More than 100 volunteers staffed 10 locations across campus throughout the day to encourage annual gifts from the RIT community. Contributions from more than 940 faculty, staff, students and alumni helped raise $27,500 for RIT’s General Scholarship, student clubs, athletic teams and other areas of the university.
