What is your RPI first?

Let’s work together to remember the transformational people, moments, and achievements that make RPI such a special place.

As we celebrate 200 years, share your RPI Firsts with everyone in the RPI community. What are you most proud of? How did you change at RPI? Is there a moment you’ll never forget? Tell your story and preserve the RPI experience for generations to come.
