Rensselaer hosted more than 200 high school seniors on campus Oct. 11-13 as part of the admissions STAR event. The STAR (Science, Technology, Arts at Rensselaer) program invites academically talented, underrepresented minorities and young women to experience life as a Rensselaer student. Current students served as hosts to the visiting high school seniors. The visiting students had a full day of events on their agenda, including campus tours, admission interviews, and learning about the undergraduate programs offered at Rensselaer.

As part of the “Academic Exploration” sessions, Professor Frank Wright, director of undergraduate programs in the Lally School of Management & Technology, spoke about the many opportunities students have as undergraduates at Rensselaer. Wright gave students advice on how to use their resources on researching colleges. Students also had the opportunity to be welcomed to campus by President Shirley Ann Jackson, who encouraged them to consider Rensselaer as their college choice. She acknowledged the students for taking an active role in determining their future. “Your generation will be called upon to be global leaders and innovators,” said President Jackson.
