Reunion: Experience the Renaissance!
New programs for families with college-bound students
“Those who don’t come back will really be missing out,” says Jeff Schanz, director of alumni relations and annual giving. “Seeing old friends is fun, but there’s so much more to Reunion than that. Rensselaer has changed so much, and it will be exciting for our alumni to experience new facilities and technology firsthand.”
On Friday, enjoy “Breakfast with the Deans,” and learn what’s new inside Rensselaer’s labs and classrooms. “Technology and Innovation Tours” and the “Technology Fair” will showcase facilities and research made possible by the historic $1.4 billion capital campaign now under way, such as the O.T. Swanson Multidisciplinary Design Laboratory and the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center.
On Saturday, President Shirley Ann Jackson’s “State of the Institute Address” will detail the progress the Institute has made toward the goal of becoming a top-tier, world-class research university with global reach and global impact. Later, alumni, families, and children from pre-K through middle school will learn science, technology, engineering, and math concepts with the LEGO® Robotics Program.
Old favorites will still be part of the program: tours, a golf outing, a dinner cruise, the Parade of Classes, and the picnic. New events have been added, such as a luau followed by fireworks, the Red & White Reunion Bash (games! movies! non-cash Alumni Casino!), an admissions program for families with college-bound students, a pool party, and plenty of time to enjoy friends and to explore dear old RPI.
