Grand Opening of the Golisano College to be celebrated May 2

A grand opening celebration for RIT’s eighth college will take place at 3 p.m. May 2.

The three-story, 177,000-square-foot home of the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences features a dramatic atrium.

The B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, named in honor of the RIT trustee whose $14 million donation made the college possible, was founded two years ago and moved into its new building early this year. The 177,000-square-foot facility incorporates 13 classrooms, 31 computer labs, 94 faculty offices, a 151-seat auditorium and a spacious, three-story atrium.

“This impressive building represents the future of the Golisano College,” says Jorge Díaz-Herrera, GCCIS dean. “We strive to be the best in the world at helping superior students develop into balanced computing professionals who can effectively apply theory, principles and technology from the whole spectrum of computing in a wide range of domains.”

The grand opening event will include a keynote address, reception and tours of the new building. For more information, call 585-475-4987.
