The Celebration of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship & Creative Activity (CURSCA) Conference is pleased to welcome Rickey Ruff '10 as its keynote speaker on Wednesday, April 19.
Ricky is a Global Manufacturing and Sourcing Manager at Ralph Lauren Corporation. He has successfully carried out roles in design development, technical design, global business process, as well as production and currently works on Ralph Lauren's Runway Collection. He was the first person in the history of Marist College to play football for the Red Foxes while majoring in Fashion.
CURSCA is Marist's annual showcase of student scholarly and creative work, which provides a forum for students to share their work with, and be celebrated by, the College community. The first celebration was held in April 2002 and was limited to a display of posters. CURSCA 2017 will feature the keynote speaker and poster sessions, as well as oral presentations, and other means of expression such as musical and dramatic performance, artwork, and other types of scholarly and creative activity.
