Ho-Ho-Humdrum holiday shopping season predicted Dateline: RIT, News hits, Podcasts

High gas and food prices may put consumers in a thrifty spending mood this holiday season—that’s what Gene Fram, of RIT’s E. Philip Saunders College of Business, recently told Marcia Morphy and me on Studio 86. With shoppers’ spirits also dampened by this year’s lack of “must have” gifts, Dr. Fram predicts “tepid” holiday shopping.

Listen to the entire Studio 86 interview.

On the most recent Dateline: RIT – The Podcast, Cary Graphic Arts Collection curator and press director David Pankow tells the fascinating story behind the creation of a wall of 27 eight-foot-high glass panels—each etched with famous quotations about books, design, reading and typography—that’s part of RIT’s Alexander S. Lawson Publishing Center, along with the contributions of Hermann Zapf, the former RIT Cary Professor who’s recognized as one of the world’s greatest type designers (and who was recently profiled in Step Inside Design magazine).

Hear the full story, along with other campus news and News & Events highlights, on Dateline: RIT – The Podcast. By the way, this episode is longer than usual—I wanted to give you your “fill” because, due to the Thanksgiving holiday, you’ll have to wait longer for the next episode, which will come out on Dec. 13.

Have a nice weekend, a Happy Thanksgiving, and an enjoyable fall/winter break!
