The campus community is invited to join Rensselaer hockey fans at the Heffner Alumni House on Saturday, Feb. 14, for a popular men’s ice hockey tradition—the Big Red Freakout Ice House.
Ice House begins at 4:30 p.m., as fans gather for a pre-game buffet dinner and pep rally, a visit from Puckman and the RPI Pep Band, and face-painting and “tattoo” services provided by the Red & White Student Organization. Shuttles will be available to transport fans to the Houston Field House for the game. Fans are invited to return for a post-game reception with a cash bar, complimentary hot drinks, desserts, and snacks, and a chance to meet the team and coaching staff.
In addition to the usual festivities, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1994-95 ECAC Hockey Championship team, as well as the 30th anniversary of the 1984-85 National Championship hockey team. Members of both teams will be in attendance at Ice House, and will be recognized between periods of the RPI vs. Yale hockey game.
