Chamber to host CollegeFEST event downtown 

CampusROC, a Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce program, will host the second annual CollegeFEST from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17 at Innovation Square in downtown Rochester.  

Over 1,000 students are expected to attend and over 80 employers will be present at this year’s festival with over 400 job, co-op and internship opportunities available to current college students and recent alumni.  

“Connecting Greater Rochester’s employers with talent is more important now than ever, and we are so excited for this opportunity to connect them with the next generation of great talent,” said Bob Duffy, the chamber’s president and CEO. “Our local colleges and universities are a tremendous asset for our community and create outstanding young professionals to solve local companies’ talent needs. We are excited for CollegeFEST again this year to show these students why Rochester is a great place to live and work, and to continue to attract high-quality students to study in Greater Rochester for years to come.” 

The event will also feature live entertainment from Dr. Griffs, a University of Rochester alumnus and Austin Giorgio, a Rochester native and SUNY Geneseo alumnus. In addition, there will be live entertainment, as well as giant lawn games, a mechanical snowboard, a scavenger hunt and over $10,000 in raffle giveaway from Rochester-based companies.
