This year Brick City Weekend is going virtual
Tiger Alumni Week
We may not be able to meet on campus this year, so we’re getting ready to provide you with a Stay Homecoming experience. You'll be able to view campus tours, set up a Zoom reunion, participate in social media contests, and watch webinars without having to travel to campus.

ROAR15 - celebrating 15 years of giving
This year is the 15th anniversary celebration of RIT’s most philanthropic day--ROAR Day. Starting at midnight on October 21, we’re asking the RIT community to make a gift in support of your fellow Tigers.

Your opinion about RIT matters!

You can help just by telling us what you think

The RIT Alumni Association and RIT’s Office of Alumni Relations are conducting the largest alumni survey in the university’s history so that we can understand how to serve you better. We want to hear what you expect from the alumni relations programs, what you like the most (and the least!), and how we can build a relationship with all alumni in the future.
