Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Go to as many fraternities as you can during rush.
  • Learn the dorms a little ahead of time to get an idea which is best for you.
  • Take advantage of the good food during the beginning of the year.
  • There's a lot of schoolwork involved in an RPI education.
  • Those time management skills they tried to teach you actually come in handy.
  • You spend much of your time chained to a computer.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Information sessions are held Monday through Friday at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. and Saturdays at 9 a.m. To schedule an interview, go to and fill out the online form with the word "interview" in the question box.
Campus Tours
Campus tours are held Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., Saturdays at 10 a.m., and Sundays at 1 p.m.
Overnight Visits
Once you have been accepted and have decided to attend RPI, there is a mandatory Student Orientation Session that you must attend over the summer, most of which are in July. During this time, you will get acquainted with your future classmates and also register for your first semester of classes. The best way to get a good feel of what life is like on campus is to talk to your SO Advisors. Ask as many questions as you can think of while you have the chance. They are there to help you get ready for RPI, and they are more than happy to address any questions you have.
