NJIT's Inaugural Celebration Begins

Some 2,000 NJIT students milled around yesterday afternoon under the big white tent filling up most of the campus green, enjoying fresh hot dogs, drinks, popcorn and each other’s company of a brilliantly clear September afternoon.  The occasion was the start of a three-day inaugural celebration, kicked off by the annual NJIT Convocation in the Naimoli Family Athletic and Recreational Facility, followed by the campus fair.  Tables of student organizations from chess clubs to sororities promoted their wares in the hopes of bringing in new freshmen members   Free red t-shirts were available everywhere celebrating the final event: tomorrow’s installation of NJIT’s 8th president Dr. Joel S. Bloom.
