A new app that’s been developed to help the RIT community eliminate communication barriers. As a member of the RIT community, you can use TigerChat to converse with another person or group using automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology and typing. You can watch the conversation as is happens rather than wait for someone to press the “send” button.
You can register for events ahead of time online. This is the most efficient way to guarantee your tickets and attendance at various events. Registration will be available during the weekend, but space will not be guaranteed.
Seating for most ticketed events is general admission, including seating for the BCW Comedian and the women's hockey games. Seating for the men's hockey game at Blue Cross Arena is RESERVED. Venues will open one hour before each event.
