Huge thank you to everyone who came and made #RITSTARfest 2018 spectacular! We hope you had an super day and hope to see you next year! If you want to share your thoughts for next year, join us for debrief at 3:00 PM in room 2740, or respond online at https://starfest.ritstar.com/feedback2018.

Also, if you want to keep a piece of #RITSTARfest history, we're giving away some of our giant painted signs, and you're also welcome to grab our posters around the RIT campus—we can't store all of them, and we'd love them to find good homes rather than getting thrown out.

It is one more day to #RITSTARfest 2018! Despite all the Spider-Man memes, we decided to skip this one.

Anyhow, remember pre-registration ends tonight! (But you can still register at the door.)
