Navy ROTC Celebrates Reunion & Homecoming Weekend
Reunion & Homecoming Weekend served as an ideal opportunity to host a reception for past and current members of the Navy Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC). As part of the event, more than 30 Navy midshipmen, unit staff, Navy ROTC alumni, and family members gathered in the NROTC wardroom. Alumni representing a range of Rensselaer classes from 1952 to 1992 attended the event.
“The event served as a great opportunity for alumni to see the changes to the unit spaces, such as an electronic classroom and a recently remodeled lecture classroom, and hear about upcoming projects,” said Mike Pizzari, a junior majoring in mechanical engineering, who is a midshipman in NROTC, and serves as the unit’s publicity coordinator. “As one of the midshipmen present for the event, hearing the sea stories and personal experience of past alumni always creates great conversation and provides great learning opportunities.”
