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 English-speaking world!

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! Tout your connection to the ‘Tute on RPI Spirit Day!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2017 festivities! Visit the RAA Facebook Page to see all the submissions.
