Strong student support for RPI sport teams

Weekend activities include UPAC cinema, comedy, painting, and dancing

Hey RPI!

I hope that everyone enjoyed the opening weekend of football! It is an exciting time for sports, both on- and off-campus. Football opened their season successfully with a win over Norwich University 29-9, men’s and women’s cross country placed second in Classic, and our men’s soccer team has remained un deleted ending their last game in a draw with State University of New York at Brockport. Get out there and continue to cheer on your friends and classmates this fall; all schedules can be found at Also, while yesterday was the culmination of Hockey Line, the celebration at the Houston Field House was a blast. If you couldn’t attend, it was not your last chance to purchase season tickets. If you and your friends still want to cheer on the Engineers all season long, you can still go purchase tickets up at the Houston Field House from 10 am–3 pm.

Club officers, if you have any projects coming up for your club that you believe alumni would like to support, please take a look at the weR Gold application. This is a great way to fund capital projects or purchases for your club. In years past, alumni have been very generous in supporting clubs. Take advantage of this opportunity to spread the word about the amazing things your club has been up to and give alumni a great way to stay involved with the activities they loved while they were on campus or maybe to support something new. Applications are online at

If you are looking for something fun to do later this week, the pub is hosting Painting at the Pub “Back-To-School Birches”, a step-by-step instructional art class, from 7–9 pm on Thursday. No artistic ability is needed and beginners are welcome! On Friday, our own Ballroom Club is hosting an Introduction to Ballroom! This event will guide you in the ways of the dance floor and introduce you to the members of the Ballroom Club at RPI. Also this weekend, UPAC Cinema presents Neighbors in DCC 308 at 7 pm, 9:30 pm, and midnight. Admission is only $2.50. It’s a great way to spend a calm Friday night. Finally, on Saturday, UPAC Comedy is hosting Sarah Tiana for their first comedy show of the year. This event will be hosted in Mother’s. If you bring your RPI ID your ticket is free!

Have a wonderful week everyone!
