1984 Summer in Brick City

First-year students entering National Technical Institute for the Deaf at RIT participate in an orientation called Summer Vestibule Program (SVP). Students tend to form long-lasting friendships during this initial exposure to college life. Mark King ’85 (biomedical photography) went through his own SVP in 1979, and shot these photos during the 1984 program. At top are Fred Beam and an unknown companion; the photo below catches a moment during a water balloon toss.

If you would like to share additional memories of this event, or have other photos or ideas for the “Archives” page, please write to Kathy Lindsley, University News Services, Rochester Institute of Technology, 132 Lomb Memorial Drive – Bldg. 86, Rochester, NY 14623.
