for the fun of it
Brick City Festival
2003 biggest ever
More than 3,500 alumni,
parents, students and friends came to campus for RITs annual
fall celebration, which this year featured a jam-packed schedule
of activities spread across four glorious October days.
Brick City Festival,
which includes Alumni Weekend, Family Weekend and the Stonehurst
Capital Invitational Regatta, offered special tours, banquets,
barbecues, receptions, music, assorted reunion gatherings, educational
presentations, pumpkin launching, a world-cultures fair and much
Ben Stein, economist,
actor and host of the TV game show Win Ben Steins Money,
gave a sold-out presentation as this years Horton Distinguished
Speaker. Comedians Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood of the hit
TV show Whose Line Is It Anyway? also packed Clark Gymnasium,
and RIT revisited the age of Beatlemania with a performance by
tribute band The Return. The legendary Buck ONeil, a star
of the historic Negro Baseball Leagues who gained national attention
as a commentator in Ken Burnss PBS documentary Baseball,
closed the weekend with a Sunday afternoon presentation.
If you think this was
a great weekend, youre right. And next years Brick
City Festival will be even better.
Thats a promise!
