Webinars and Other Virtual Experiences

In an effort to protect the health and safety of the campus community from COVID-19, 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 and resources below - we look forward to interacting with you at some, or all of them!
