A message from the president

As you'll soon note as you turn the following pages, much of this issue of Pres 7-043The University Magazine is devoted to what's new at RIT. Our alumni are spotlighted as they work in what Time magazine has deemed as "hot jobs" -- careers in fields as novel as imaging science and biotechnology and as traditional as civil engineering. You'll read about Distance Learning, as it takes on the Internet and other technologies to prepare new graduates. Further on you'll note a full page of some of our most seasoned alumni who visited campus in June for Golden Reunion, one of our new alumni programs.

We also introduce you to projects our students are creating: from Formula cars and concrete canoes and other equally intriguing, though possibly quieter, projects. To enhance their experiences as they learn and create at RIT, we are constantly researching and developing ideas and programs that will keep our students on the leading edge and provide them with new career advantages.

Enjoy reading this issue and discovering the latest developments. Afterward, why not visit and see for yourself? Attend a lecture, take a class, participate in an alumni event, have a sandwich in the Student Alumni Union, or visit one of the art and photo galleries on campus. You are always welcome here.

       Cordially yours,
Simone's Signature
