Rochester Institute of Technology’s Brick City Homecoming and family weekend will feature Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central.
The weekend runs from Oct. 13-15 and usually draws some 17,000 attendees to campus.
Noah will speak from 1- 2 p.m. on Oct. 14 at the Gordon Field House.
“We have been planning this weekend since October of last year,” said Farid Barquet, president of RIT Student Government, in a statement. “We have many of the fan-favorite events returning, such as Dueling Pianos, Build a Tiger, men’s and women’s hockey, and there are many new and exciting events. You also can’t miss our Student Government performer this year, Trevor Noah, who we are thrilled to meet. It’s definitely a fun-packed weekend.”
The weekend includes 100 events.
“We have a plethora of activities planned for everyone at this year’s family weekend,” said Lynn Rowoth, assistant vice president of special events and director of Brick City Homecoming, in a statement. “With a wide array of speakers, tours, reunions, athletic events and so much more, the appeal is broad to intrigue and attract our students, parents, families, alumni, staff, faculty and guests.”
Tickets for the Trevor Noah event are $10 for RIT students and are $20 for RIT faculty, staff, alumni, families and the public. Tickets are available here or at the University Arenas Box Office, officials said.
