Bring out your RED!
3rd Annual RPI Spirit Day - Friday, February 7, 2014
Thanks to everyone who participated in the 3rd Annual RPI Spirit Day celebration. You can see a compilation of the photos submitted on the Rensselaer Alumni Association Facebook page
. We look forward to seeing even more spirit next year!
What's Spirit Day?
It’s easy! Simply wear or display your RPI gear
– at work, at grad school, at the mall, wherever you may find yourself – and put your pride in your alma mater on display for everyone to see. Don’t forget to take a picture and post it to social media with #RPISpiritDay
Put on your Phalanx Pin! Wear your Freshman Beanie! How about an old jersey? Line up your GM Week mug collection on your desk, or hang an RPI pennant on your office door. It can be as simple as wearing red, but do something to show the world that YOU are a proud graduate of the oldest – and best – technological institute in the nation!
Rensselaer has global reach and impact, and so can you! Show your pride virtually by changing your profile pic or your avatar
to an RPI-related image – we have several in the column at the right to choose from, or create your own.
You never know who you might see in your region or at your corporation who is an RPI alumnus/a as well!

The men's hockey team was in action at home the weekend of Spirit Day. On Friday, Yale defeated RPI in overtime by a score of 3-2. But the evening was still made special for fans as Gerry Knightely '65 was inducted into the RPI Hockey Ring of Honor. Big Red Freakout on Saturday saw fans celebrating the achievements of the 1964 Frozen Four team on the 50th anniversary of their accomplishment. RPI defeated Brown 4-1 in the Freakout game, closing out Spirit Weekend in fine style.
