Illuminated at the FIT

A driving rain forced the annual illumination ceremony from the commencement lawn by the Hackensack River to the hardwood floors of the Fitness Center Thursday evening.

After last year’s stunning performance in the NCAA men’s basketball March Madness,” maybe it was just where it should be.

While a few fitness-minded students worked out on machines and watched through the skybox glass, campus newcomers, parents, faculty and staff filled the basketball floor to hear welcome greetings and light candles to mark the beginning of the academic year.

The rainfall outside didn’t dampen spirits as hand-drawn signs on the SUB doors sent participants from the one end of the Teaneck part of our campus to the other.

Welcome Class of 2027!
