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
Every picture posted with #RPISpiritDay will automatically be entered into our Spirit Day Photo Competition. Check out the Rensselaer Alumni Association Facebook page on Monday, February 10 to see if your picture was chosen as one of our top Spirit Day photos, then Like your favorite photos to help us decide who best displayed their RPI spirit.
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!
