GCCIS dedication


| Comments (0) | Views (0)

Just came back from the grand opening and dedication ceremonies for the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences held in the atrium of that beautiful building. A humorous and entertaining event, most memorable was the light hearted bantering back and forth between Mr. Golisano and RIT President Al Simone. The biggest laughs came from the president's jokes, including the pronunciation of the GCCIS acronym as "Jesus". Furthering the humor, he said by including all of Mr. Golisano's initials in the acronym produces "B-Jesus". So, glory be to Jesus for the latest addition to RIT's fine campus, and heartfelt thanks to Tom Golisano for generously donating the $14 million dollars.

Also provided was a virtual reality and musical performance by Jaron Lanier, the man who coined the term "virtual reality" back in the early 80's. Although his talent was virtually unappreciated by many of the attendees, his performance which merged primitive instruments with computer technology was indeed impressive and exhibited a level of depth that could barely be comprehended in the venue of its expression.

It was a truly momentous and memorable event, one more witness to the seemingly magical experience unfolding right before me, as if... for me. I am very fortunate to be a full-time student pursuing a masters degree in game design and development here at RIT.
