In the week leading up to the campaign launch, the campus community is invited to take part in spirited promotions meant to build excitement and community spirit.

“Go Red for Rensselaer Week” is a combination of events and social media coverage that will focus on the Rensselaer community’s contributions to “Changing the World.” Through their community engagement, scholarship, research, and careers, Rensselaer students, faculty, staff, and alumni begin changing the world from the day they start their Rensselaer journey. That vision and determination lasts far beyond the walls of Rensselaer into their professional careers and personal lives.

The Go Red for Rensselaer Week will be prominent on Rensselaer social media channels and will focus on how Rensselaer community members are game-changers.

Use the hashtag #rpigamechanger to describe how you are a game-changer. Go to for links to social media accounts for coverage of game-changers, to keep up-do-date on the week’s events, and to learn about a few contests and giveaways.

Keep an eye out at events and around campus for T-shirt giveaways. Wear your Rensselaer pride throughout the week and you might be featured on social media or chosen for additional giveaways.
