Join us for the Presidents’ Alumni Ball during Brick City Homecoming and Family Weekend

RIT President David C. Munson, Jr. and Alumni Association President Kevin Sheldon ’02 invite you to this year’s Presidents’ Alumni Ball!

Join us as we celebrate a special milestone—50 years at the Henrietta campus, affectionately known as “Brick City.” Since moving RIT from downtown Rochester in 1968—where it had been since 1885—to farmland in the town of Henrietta, the university has transformed just as rapidly as its growth, continually pushing the boundaries of creativity and innovation, while becoming one of the top universities in the nation.
Thank you for your interest in the Presidents' Alumni Ball, currently we are SOLD OUT. If you are interested in being placed on the waiting list, please email ritalum@rit.edu or call the Alumni Relations Office at 585.475.4889 for assistance.
