Who We Are

Rensselaer's Red & White Student Organization is a group of students who serve as ambassadors of Rensselaer, representing the institute to its constituency--the alumni, the campus and the community. 

As a member of this popular and professional organization, you will have the opportunity to network with alumni, develop leadership and communication skills, build career contacts, and participate in university, presidential and alumni events.  Members also help to promote the traditions of Rensselaer, guide seniors through the transition from students to alumni, and instill a sense of pride in the institute.

Formed in 1995 within the Office of Alumni Relations, Red & White builds relationships with alumni and the community, generates pride in the university, and promotes student awareness of the Rensselaer Alumni Association (RAA).

What We Do

Our activities include interfacing with alumni and community representatives at university events, participating in corporate executive visits, and promoting alumni speaker programs. Red & White also sponsors several events and activities throughout the semester to the entire Rensselaer community.

Red & White also hosts tours for alumni returning to campus. For more information, please visit the Alumni Tours page.
