Biographical / Historical

Beginning in 2010, FreezeFest's inaugural festival brought students, members of the RIT community, family and friends out into the elements for a variety of winter events. As Rochester gets its fair share of snow, RIT responded by shaking up the winter doldrums and hosting unique experiences such as 3-on-3 outdoor hockey, an igloo building contest, and a live ice carving demonstration.

2011 Freezefest began with College Activities Board's Rail Jam, followed by RIT's 30th Annual Gospel Fest in Clark Gym and Comedian Aziz Ansari in Gordon Field House. Other activities included outdoor hockey, a chili and dessert bake-off, campus carriage rides, a frosty fun center in the SAU, and live music at Global Village plaza. A bonfire and pep rally preceeded a Men's Hockey game, and Global Union's renowned Unification was held in Ingle Auditorium. The three-day Freezefest festivities concluded with a 5K fun run/walk and the Student Government Super Bowl Party.
