In 1968, RIT moved from downtown Rochester to its new campus in Henrietta. The campus, under construction here, was dedicated during homecoming weekend.

I started at RIT in 1966 at the downtown campus. I loved the experience of going to college in a downtown environment. I made many new friends and had a wonderful time.

I was in the first class on the new campus in Henrietta as a junior. They were still building and adding things as we went to class. I had the opportunity to work at the new student union in the bowling alley and billiard room. I’ll never forget my experiences at both the downtown campus and Henrietta campus.
