You’ve probably seen them around campus with their fierce orange bows and shiny pom poms. The RIT Cheer Team have had our backs during our sporting events since the 70’s! They train multiple times a week for their synchronized dance routines and breath-taking flips and twirls, all while balancing other extracurriculars and their studies. Yet, this doesn’t stop them from being #1. On March 11th of this year went to Syracuse to compete in the 2017 Salt City Beach Bash. They obtained first place in the college division.
