Discover Clarkson: Open House Events
Saturday, September 30, 2017 and Saturday, November 4, 2017

Experience the energy and creativity of Clarkson at one of our Fall Open House Events!

There is no limit on the number of academic departments you can visit - Clarkson encourages prospective students to talk to students and faculty in any departments that interest them. There, you will learn about Clarkson's team-based learning approach and interdisciplinary programs such as Liberal Arts and Business, Environmental Science and Policy, and Engineering and Management.

The program includes sessions such as a student life panel, admission and financial aid overview, tours, and much more. You will have the chance to chat over lunch with faculty and students, and staff. In addition, learn about all the services that are available that help make our students successful. The program is structured with the needs of high school juniors and seniors and their families in mind.

Even if you have already visited the campus, this is a great opportunity to further enhance your Clarkson experience.
