    We are having some scheduling issues for the April 1st admitted student's open house, and cannot attend the April 8th one. Is there another time we could come maybe the following week or when convenient for you and get a tour?

    Please let us know.

    Thank you,

    Claudia Owens

    We do not have a weekend Open House date, but we do offer campus tours at 11 AM on most Saturdays. You can discuss a visit to campus with our visit coordinator, Michelle Kinch, at 585-475-6736. Hope to see you soon!

    Will the open house on 4/1 be canceled due to the pending snow storm?

    Absolutely not! The weather predicts no significant snow accumulation for Rochester tomorrow. Even in a foot of snow (or more), campus life still goes on. See you tomorrow!

    Excellent, we will see you tomorrow.......looks like we are going to drive through snow from Poughkeepsie NY to get to RIT. Now that's a nice switch :)

    My daughter Jennifer has been accepted and we were unable to make the two scheduled visit dates and since there is no school for her in Boston this upcoming week is it possible to schedule a visit this coming week. Robert Fairbairn

    I tried to register for the 8th, but when i clicked on the hyper link for registering it tells me that April 13th is the only available event. I thought the only two open house days were the 1st and the 8th. Am I mistaken?
    thanks, Ben
