In November, Rochester Institute of Technology launched a fundraising effort designed to secure $15 million needed to fund a new hockey arena for its men’s and women’s teams.

So when school president William W. Destler got to the part of his annual President’s Address about building projects on campus, naturally, the potential for a new home for the Tigers came up.

“I’m hoping against hope to have a significant announcement related to this effort soon,” Destler said.

A tip, or just hope? We’ll see.

Here’s the video. The line about the new arena starts at 38:47.
