Stanton, who is this year’s Student Government Horton Distinguished Speaker, will address alumni and students during Rochester Institute of Technology’s Brick City Homecoming & Family Weekend, Oct. 14-16.

Brick City Weekend typically draws 17,000 people to RIT’s campus for more than 100 events, which range from alumni reunions, athletic events, guests speakers, guided tours, the President’s Alumni Ball, and more.

This year is the first time the Women’s Hockey Team will play a game during Brick City Weekend, and it’s an opportunity for alumni to visit the Gene Polisseni Center during a live competition. The Men’s Hockey Team will host the University of Connecticut at Blue Cross Arena in downtown Rochester.
