A look back

Reunion 2002 and Brick City Festival

RIT celebrated its spirit Oct. 11-13 during Reunion 2002 and the fifth anniversary of Brick City Festival – RIT’s community celebration for alumni, family and students.
The three-day event hosted more than 2,600 visitors to campus and featured top-notch entertainment, reunion activities for class years and athletics, faculty presentations, campus tours and the Stonehurst Capital Invitational Regatta.

A Family Affair…
Keith Shugerts ’95, member of the RIT Alumni Network Board of Directors, and son Branden
had fun at the alumni volunteer recognition
luncheon. Branden is sure to be an RIT legacy as his mom, Michele (Boyer) ’96, is also a graduate.

Reconnecting with the Past…
Golden graduates mingle after the Golden Circle luncheon. A special pinning ceremony takes place during the luncheon, which is the highlight of Golden Circle — a program to recognize and pay tribute to alumni celebrating 50 years plus as
RIT graduates.

An Afternoon with Magic…
Former NBA superstar Magic Johnson was
the Horton Distinguished Speaker. He hosted a student roundtable followed by a discussion in Clark Gymnasium about his career, his entrepreneurial ventures and living with HIV.

Reunion Class Gift…

Reunion 2002 Giving Results
For the second year in a row, RIT alumni made the Reunion Giving program a success! The classes of 1942, 1946, 1947, 1948, 1962, 1971, 1972, 1973 and 1997 reached an unprecedented 22 percent in giving participation and a benchmark dollar amount of $250,000.

The work of 90 alumni volunteers was instrumental in achieving these results. The giving program for the 14 classes of Reunion 2003 is underway. For more information, please contact the Reunion Giving Office at 585-475-7624 or 1-800-477-0376.
