Students, faculty and staff attend annual Applefest

24 Sep

Applefest, an annual fall tradition at RIT sponsored by the NTID Student Life Team to welcome new and returning students to campus, filled the D. Robert Frisina Quad on September 9, 2011.

Members from dozens of diverse student and campus organizations – including sororities, counseling services, the NTID Center on Employment, NTID Performing Arts and ethnic clubs – staffed tables and distributed information about what they offer students.

NTID President Gerry Buckley addressed the crowd before visiting the tables, and RIT President Bill Destler stopped by as well.

Clusters of students, faculty, staff and community members quickly formed to chat and catch up on summer vacations and other news. Music and dancing added to the festive atmosphere.

And the Applefest wouldn’t be Applefest without a host of treats made with apples, which were distributed free to the attendees.

“It was an afternoon filled with smiles, apple treats, and most of all, welcoming our new, transfer and returning students,” said Astrid Jones, coordinator of Student Life programming.
