brings rewards – and thats not just an Alumni Relations
|On a visit to
campus, Amy Hall ’92, right, chats with Katie Cole of
RIT’s Business Leaders of Tomorrow.
Just ask Amy Johnson
Hall 92 (industrial design). After graduation, she signed
up to help revitalize alumni events in the Buffalo area. When
she moved to the New York City area a few years later, she volunteered
for admissions-related events and began attending alumni events.
She saw old friends and made new ones – including one destined
to become her life partner.

and Todd married in 2000 and recently purchased a home in Wayne,
Last year, Hall was
invited to become a member of the Alumni Network Board. In April,
her involvement led to a truly special opportunity: Hall got the
chance to spend a Friday night in RITs Peterson Residence
great to reconnect, and I feel very honored to be on the board,
says Hall. I have so much pride in RIT. I like to try to
give back, and in some small way be part of RITs vision
for the future. Plus, I happen to love a good party, and the events
are a lot of fun.
sleepover stemmed from her interest in students. Hall, in Rochester
for an Alumni Network Board meeting, was asked to be the first
speaker in a series sponsored by Business Leaders of Tomorrow,
a recently formed student group. Hall, general manager of the
Flexible Packaging Division of Universal Folding Box Co. Inc.,
talked about her career. Beginning this fall, members of Business
Leaders of Tomorrow will live in a newly designated special-interest
floor in the residence halls.
Hall says alumni activities
have been beyond her expectations. Its not just
about seeing the people you went to school with. Its more
about reconnecting with an important part of your life, and expanding
on that. And that is so rewarding.
