Reunion & Homecoming 2009: The Tradition Begins With You!

Make plans to return to campus Oct. 2-4 for a full weekend of events

Picture yourself, your family, and friends enjoying a gorgeous fall day in Troy. The campus is bustling with students, classes, tours, and great food and entertainment. A campuswide tailgate party takes place before the football team plays in the brand-new stadium in the newly opened East Campus Athletic Village (ECAV). Alumni are back to campus for Class Reunions, Greek events, athletic team gatherings, and special interest group programs. If this sounds like fun to you, then mark the calendar for Oct. 2-4 for a new Rensselaer tradition: Reunion & Homecoming.

The weekend’s events will include campus tours, the President’s annual State of the Institute address, a Greek ChowderFest, class dinners, a campuswide outdoor festival at the new ECAV, a football game against Rochester, men’s and women’s hockey games, and performances at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC).
