Scope and Contents

Participants in the Tiger Walk, which precedes the Convocation, will greet our new students. The Tiger Walk has become a tradition where alumni, faculty, and staff greet the incoming class as they make the trek from the residence halls to the Field House. The 2nd annual RIT tiger walk provided a rowdy kickoff to the school year on August 29, 2005 at 9:00 a.m. Participants wear "Welcome students" t-shirts, wave tiger fans, as seen in this collection, and carry signs to welcome the newcomers.
