In 2018, RIT will celebrate 50 years at its modern campus in the town of Henrietta, NY. Under the leadership of Mark Ellingson, who served as RIT president for 33 years (1936 to 1969), RIT moved from downtown Rochester to the newly-built Henrietta campus in 1968. The university is celebrating this milestone with yearlong activities from July 2018 to June 2019. This includes special ceremonies and events during Brick City Homecoming & Family Weekend, October 19-21, 2018.
