Just days before winning a U.S. Senate seat, Hillary Rodham Clinton
spoke to more than 1,500 students and others on campus. Clinton
praised RIT as a "world-class, world-famous institution," citing
programs such as telecommunications and information technology,
as well as the National Technical Institute for the Deaf. "The
innovations that are transforming our economy are right here at
RIT - you are the cutting edge of seeing our future."
