Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

Webinars and Other Virtual Experiences

In an effort to protect the health and safety of the campus community from the Coronavirus Disease, the Institute will not be allowing visitors for the remainder of the spring academic term. We appreciate your understanding that the health and safety of our community members is the top priority of Rensselaer.

Instead of our Accepted Student Celebration and on-campus daily information sessions and tours, we are excited to be able to provide you with webinars and other virtual experiences to help you learn more about the RPI community.

Please browse the webinars, takeovers, and other virtual events below - we look forward to interacting with you at some, or all of them!

Webinars and Virtual Experiences for Accepted Students

Can't make a certain webinar? No problem! A few days after the webinar, the registration link will turn into a link to the recording so you can view past webinars!

Virtual Accepted Student Celebration

You can register for this Virtual Accepted Student Celebration at go.rpi.edu/ASC. There will be a welcome by our Vice President for Enrollment Management, Jon Wexler, and our student speaker, Mackenzie Laird. Following the welcome, there will be interactive school or department-specific sessions.

If you have already signed up for the on-campus event, we will automatically transfer your registration to the virtual event. 

Virtual Campus Tour

Check out our virtual campus tour! Explore the entire campus tour, plus three mini-tours:
