Dear Rensselaer Parents and Families,

On Behalf of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, we’re delighted to invite you to attend Family Weekend, a campus-wide celebration in honor of parents, grandparents and all extended family taking place from Friday –Sunday, October 24-26, 2014. We encourage you to take part in this unique weekend experience which will provide your family the opportunity to explore the Institute and everything it has to offer. You will discover more about your student’s life at RPI as you participate in various receptions, sample classes, open houses, and cultural and athletic events. We hope that you will visit us to take a look inside Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, it’s beautiful campus, academic life, resources, and activities Rensselaer students value and enjoy.

Just as important as the formal program, is the opportunity for you to spend time with your student(s) as they share their college experience with you, introduce their friends and show you around the campus. If you are unable to join us on campus, think about treating your student to one of our meals or encourage them to attend an athletic event with their friends –everyone is welcome to participate!

Please use the Family Weekend online registration to let us know whether you’ll be able to join us. Be sure to add all of tickets and t-shirts to your cart before checking out. Pre-registration will end October 15th, though you may also inquire at Family Weekend check-in if any additional tickets are available.

Should you have any questions, please contact us at, or call us at 518-276-8022.

Autumn in Troy is truly a special time, so we hope you’ll plan to enjoy this occasion with your student, and share in the culture and rich traditions of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. We look forward to connecting with you on campus this fall!
