NYIT Day at Yankee Stadium: Get Your Tickets

Aug 20, 2018

For the first time in NYIT history, students, alumni, friends and family are invited to gather for an afternoon at the ballpark as the New York Yankees takes on the Toronto Blue Jays on September 15, 2018.

“We are so honored and proud to say that we have partnered with the New York Yankees in piloting the inaugural NYIT Day at Yankee Stadium,” says Koenig, Executive Director for Debra Vogel Student Advancement Program, who played an integral role in making this partnership happen.

Dr. Koenig and I have been counting down to the days until September 15 all summer long. We are constantly checking the ticket sales along with the associates at the New York Yankees; one who is an alumnus of hospitality management in the School of Management.

I started my college career here at NYIT in 2009. As an alumna myself and a current staff now, I’ve always wanted to be a part of a team in creating a college wide initiative. It is such a humbling experience to be a part of something of this magnitude; I am overwhelmed with joy to say the least.

We are so excited to see the NYIT community come together for something this special; especially knowing that close to 200 tickets have already been sold! We look forward to seeing our former students and their friends and family. We would like to welcome and are very thrilled to see new faces from NYIT’s Class of 2022 at the Yankee Stadium as well.
