With the end of the semester in sight, you’re probably bogged down with tons of last-minute assignments to complete. With classes coming to a close for the semester this Friday, hopefully you’ll have some time before finals to unwind and celebrate the end. This weekend, there’s a hockey game and a model train show for you to enjoy.
On Friday night, the Tigers will be taking on Niagara University’s Purple Eagles in another exciting game at the Polisseni Center. With the all-time series record between the Tigers and the Purple Eagles being 14-5-11 in Niagara’s favor, RIT will have to give it their all to pull out the W. The theme of this week’s game is “Star Wars Night,” so the rink is likely to be packed with all kinds of uniquely dressed fans. Why not join in on the fun? If you’re unable to make it to the game in person, don’t worry; it’ll be broadcast on both Time Warner and WITR. To purchase tickets, check out the box office’s website. For more information on the Tigers’ second season at the Polisseni Center, head on over to RIT Hockey’s homepage.
Friday and Saturday, RIT’s Model Railroad Club will be showcasing its collection to the public for their annual Tiger Tracks train show. Beautifully modeled trains and scenery will be on display in the Gordon Field House. If you’re into model trains, you’ll want to check this out, as it’s Rochester’s largest train show. Plus, admission is free for students and there will be door prizes and refreshments. With tons of new and used train vendors, free refreshments and beautiful displays to look at, what’s not to love? While student admission to the event is free, anyone outside of RIT can pay just $5 to get in. For more information, check out the event’s Facebook page. Also don’t forget to like the group’s main page for more information on future shows.
