RIT President Bill Destler had his hair dyed orange during the halftime of the RIT men’s basketball game on Jan. 19.

Destler had agreed to the dye job if both the women’s and the men’s basketball games sold out that day. The men’s game was full, but the women’s contest didn’t quite make it. As a compromise, Destler had three-fourths of his hair colored by Vice President for Student Affairs Mary-Beth Cooper.

The challenge was meant to encourage increased support at RIT basketball games.

Watch for more photos in a photo gallery coming soon.
