Reliving the ’80s at the rink
photo

Teased hair, bright neon-colored clothing and free skates at the roller-skating rink were all the rage in the 1980s. Students from RIT’s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences recaptured the magic of that era for their production photography course’s final project. Local volunteers laced up their skates and modeled the fashions for a complex photo shoot at Horizon Fun F/X in suburban Greece last month. Popular ’80s songs from such artists as Blondie and Rick Springfield blared through the speakers to get the models in the groove.

A healthy balancing act

While RIT faculty and staff members embark on the annual Eat Well Live Well Challenge, RIT students are maintaining their physical fitness in wellness classes offered at the Student Life Center. Due to increasing popularity, the Student Life Center offered a record number of course offerings during the winter quarter. The Core Stability class, pictured above, is one of the most popular classes offered. To view more photos of RIT wellness classes, visit www.rit.edu/news and click on “Photo Gallery.”
