Bright lights, Brick City

RIT’s ninth annual fall celebration brought thousands to campus over four glorious October days. The range of activities included comedian Brad Garrett’s sold-out performance and Florida rock group Yellowcard. Environmental activist Erin Brockovich delivered a thought-provoking message to a receptive audience, and also spent time meeting with students.

New this year was the President’s Alumni Ball, a glittering affair that attracted more than 450 celebrants to dine and dance. In addition to tours of campus facilities, a wide selection of “classes without quizzes,” team reunions, family activities and special receptions, Brick City Homecoming this year included the third annual RIT Entrepreneurs Conference and distinguished professional speakers.

“Brick City Homecoming, celebrating its 10th anniversary next year, has truly become a tradition for RIT,” says Cindee Gray, assistant vice president, Government and Community Relations. “The entire RIT community has embraced the spirit of the weekend as it continues to evolve into our largest celebration.”
Alumni Relations Executive Director Kelly Redder says grads have embraced the opportunity to reconnect with RIT.

“It gets better every year,” she says. “We’re already making plans for 2007. The 10th Brick City Homecoming will be fabulous!”

Next year’s celebration is scheduled for Oct. 4-7, 2007.
