Today's photo recalls NYIT's first homecoming in 1971. As reported by The Campus Slate, this homecoming was a week to remember. Students are pictured cheering from the first-ever bleachers installed on the Old Westbury campus near the former Dairy Barn (now the Student Activity Center). Festivities spread over the days included a pep rally, parade, and a ceremony to crown the homecoming queen.
