Join President Shirley Ann Jackson, Ph.D., for a very special black tie evening as we celebrate the launch of a capital campaign designed to position Rensselaer for its third century of leadership in research and education. The campaign will support The New Polytechnic – our unique and transformative paradigm for research, teaching, and student life. The evening will consist of several stages. Please park in the College Avenue Parking Garage, or park in North Lot and take one of our convenient shuttles. Enter the Science Quad through the Polymer Center for an exciting introductory experience. Then, enjoy student performances as you stroll down the Transformational Walkway to dinner. Students and staff will be on hand to direct you. Classes and affinity groups will be seated together. Following dinner, join the Rensselaer community in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center Concert Hall for the launch of the new campaign. The program will include the announcement, a concert by the Rensselaer orchestra, and a dessert reception.
Dress is black tie optional - formal or cocktail attire. This elegant evening is sure to be the highlight of Reunion & Homecoming so mark your calendar and plan to join us.
