The University Magazine Spring 2007

You’re invited to a yearlong CAST party

RIT’s College of Applied Science and Technology (CAST) is celebrating its 35th anniversary throughout the 2007-2008 academic year. This milestone will be commemorated with monthly social, educational, athletic, historical, and other types of events.

Most significant will be the dedication in April 2008 of the college’s first building – the culmination of considerable generosity, vision and planning.

What began in 1972 as the “Institute College,” encompassing two schools and two departments, has become “CAST,” one of RIT’s largest colleges. CAST now comprises three departments, two centers, one school, and approximately 50 academic programs. The college also features overseas programs in Croatia and Kosovo, and has become RIT’s largest source for online course delivery.

Over the years, CAST has evolved to meet the growing and changing needs of its students. More than 30,000 alumni throughout all 50 states and abroad have been a part of this progression and now represent nearly one-third of RIT’s entire alumni population.

All CAST students, faculty, staff, alumni, and retirees are invited to participate in the activities. Please join CAST in celebrating its remarkable history!
