Who’s ‘Wiltsie’? Where’s Tojo Garden? And who was the ‘coolest cat’ on campus in the ’60s? Dateline: RIT, News hits, Podcasts

Have you ever wondered about the person whose name marks the campus roadway on which you drive or graces the building in which you sit? Or maybe you’d like to learn the story behind an admired piece of campus artwork, or find out if RIT really once had a live tiger mascot.

Answers to these and many other questions can be found in RIT Archive Collections online exhibits:

Art on Campus
What’s in a Name?
Spirit of RIT (RIT Mascot Page)

RIT archivist Becky Simmons recently visited Studio 86 to talk about each of the exhibits. In addition to great content, one of the best things about the exhibits is they never close. So, no matter the time or your location, the exhibits are always open at archives.rit.edu. Hear more with Becky on Studio 86.

In addition, Dateline: RIT – The Podcast has returned with its first episode of 2008. On this week’s show, RIT professor emeritus Jake Shealy—who’s one of the world’s preeminent authorities on skiing- and snowboarding-related injuries—discusses some of the most common types of injuries incurred on the slopes and who’s likely to sustain them. Plus, hear campus news—including details about this spring’s Imagine RIT Innovation and Creativity Festival—and News & Events highlights, all on this week’s Dateline: RIT – The Podcast.

Have a great weekend!
