Rensselaer hockey fans are invited to the Heffner Alumni House on Saturday, February 24, 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 where they can enjoy a performance by the RPI Pep Band, and face-painting and “tattoo” services provided by the Red & White Student Organization. A free shuttle will take fans to the Houston Field House for the game, and back to the Heffner Alumni House post-game for a reception with a cash bar, complimentary hot drinks, desserts, and snacks, and a chance to meet the team and coaching staff.

For more information and to register for the Ice House, visit by Friday, February 23, or contact Sandy Madigan at or (518) 396-6312. All RPI hockey fans are welcome.
