Free Cone Day

Free Cone Day

Free ice cream makes everything good, including spreading the love!

If you’ve stepped foot in the Student Alumni Union, you’ve had the delightful experience of catching a whiff of the warm waffle cones at Ben & Jerry’s. Yesterday, at RIT and around the nation, people everywhere celebrated Free Cone Day!

Ben & Jerry’s has been doing this for quite some time now, and it is what started as an initiative to simply spread the love of ice cream. Yesterday, that was certainly illustrated at RIT’s very own scoop shop, as all tips received were donated to Margaret’s House.

Students and faculty began lining up as early as 11 a.m. and the scooping began promptly at noon, with the line reaching passed the Fireside Lounge into the Campus Center.

The #RITStudentLife team made sure to take a walk over to get our free cones as well!

We'd say it was a successful Free Cone Day... Ben & Jerry's at RIT scooped 5,112 cones and $388.86 was raised for Margaret's House!
