Knowing each other just a little bit better

Established in 1967, the Nathaniel Rochester Society (NRS) brings the university's friends -- more than 400 alumni, parents and friends in 23 states and two foreign countries -- together to support RIT. NRS members have a variety of opportunities to become actively involved in a unique and exciting career university, recognized internationally for excellence.

In one of the society's programs, for example, members recognize some of RIT's outstanding students through the NRS Scholarship Program. Students are selected on the basis of academic excellence and leadership in the community and, since the scholarship was established, contributions have provided more than 1,000 merit awards to RIT juniors and seniors.

NRS members can also designate their annual membership contributions for any area of interest at the university -- such as a college, department or unrestricted fund. Society activities include the popular annual Summer Gala and other events that bring members to campus to interact with students and faculty to learn about RIT's leading-edge academic programs.
