A highlight of the first annual NJIT Day festivities on Oct. 23 was the rededication of the Lubetkin Soccer Field. In his remarks, NJIT President Robert A. Altenkirch said that the upgrade of the field was important not only for intercollegiate athletics, but for the use and enjoyment of all students, faculty and staff through intramurals and recreational activities. “Many of the young women and men who compete in intercollegiate athletics for NJIT will remember the experience vividly for the rest of their lives,” said Altenkirch. “It is important that we provide a quality experience for them, and, in turn, build the pride and alumni support that raises the currency of the NJIT degree even further.” Remarks at the Dedication of the Campus Center and the East Building, Oct. 23, 2004 >>
