Rensselaer students continue to help with efforts to support
local communities impacted by Hurricane Irene which struck the
region on Sunday, August 28, 2011. The storm devasted

Poestenkill, and the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers. The current
projects organized for the remainder of the Spring 2013
semester for students, staff and faculty follow:

History: Since the spring of 1999, Rensselaer has hosted Community Service Days. Each spring and autumn over the last 13 years, Rensselaer student, faculty, staff, and administration volunteers have provided essential help in the City of Troy, raking fallen leaves, trailblazing, and planting bulbs in area parks, in preparation for the upcoming seasons. The work is valued not only by the caretakers of the parks serviced, but also by members of the community who are able to take full advantage of what these areas offer year-round.
On Saturday, April 20, The RPI Relief: Mighty Waters team participated in the annual Erie Canal Sweep, heading south along the Mohawk Hudson Bike Trail in Watervliet.
