Brick City Homecoming & Family Weekend Oct. 15 - 17 was an event for the record books.

Weekend attendance reached an all-time high of 17,747, an increase of more than 2,500 from last year. The hockey game at the Blue Cross Arena in downtown Rochester, pitting RIT against University of Massachusetts Lowell, was a sellout, drawing 10,556 spectators. (The game ended in a nail-biting 4-4 tie. UMass Lowell scored a goal with 1.3 seconds left on the clock.)

Film legend and Academy Award winner Al Pacino spoke to a sold-out crowd of 4,800. And 4,200 laughed along with comedian Craig Ferguson and 940 people attended the largest-ever President’s Alumni Ball. To see more photos of this year’s Brick City Weekend, go to www.rit.edu/BrickCity
