Save the Union

Lab Safety Class: A Peaceful Demonstration

Join us on Friday, October 13 at 4 pm between Amos Eaton Hall and the Carnegie Building.

If you’ve ever had lunch with friends in the Union, been a member of a club or played an intramural sport at RPI, attended a comedy show or concert sponsored by the activity fee, did banking in the Union or shopped at the bookstore, or participated in any of the other countless Union-related activities, events, and services now or during your time as a student, we ask you to join our ranks and fight alongside us to send a message that a student-run Union is integral not only to preserve 127 years of rich history and tradition of successful student leadership, but to create unparalleled opportunities for students in the future.

The biggest impact alumni can make is by refusing to donate to the Institute until this issue is resolved and the administration relinquishes their hold on our Union, and we urge you to withhold donations in a show of solidarity. Please join us in sending a clear message to Dr. Jackson and the Board of Trustees that usurping our student-run Rensselaer Union is unacceptable.
