Just 10 miles south of Rochester, NY is Henrietta, home to the Rochester Institute of Technology. Representing the merger of 2 institutions, Rochester Athenaeum (founded in 1829) and Mechanics Institute (founded in 1885 in part by Captain Henry Lomb of ‘Bausch & Lomb’), RAMI as it was known, became RIT in 1944. Sitting on 1300 acres of wooded campus, the school is known as “Brick City” for its consistent use of similar colored brick in its architecture. The campus features a large main quad called “Infinity Quad” because of a large ribbon mobius loop sculpture that casts an infinity-like shadow during the day. Notable alumni include the president and CEO of the Associate Press Tom Curly. Also, NFL coach Tom Coughlin was a part of the Physical Education faculty (coaching the football team) in the 1970s.
