Dennis Tito to Speak at Commencement 2002

Sandeep Nandy '94 writes, "I just found out from my brother Sumon that Rensselaer has chosen Dennis Tito '64 as its 2002 commencement speaker. Commencement will be held for the 196th time at RPI on May 18, 2002."

"According to an article on the Campus.News web site, Tito is the founder and chief executive of Wilshire Associates and is the first civilian space traveler. He will be awarded an honorary doctorate of Engineering. In addition to the degree Tito will be receiving, Rensselaer will also bestow honorary doctoral degrees on Bobby Farrelly '81, Claire Fraser '77, and Ruth Simmons."
