 Rensselaer Debuts New Facebook Page
Rensselaer recently launched a new page on the social networking Web site Facebook. The new page is aimed at alumni, current and prospective students, parents, and others interested in keeping in touch with the Institute and each other.

The Rensselaer Facebook page includes links to the latest news; photos of campus, student groups, and alumni events; videos focused on the student experience; and more.

The page also offers an unofficial directory of Rensselaer-related groups and pages available on Facebook. It can help alumni easily locate groups of people, such as clubs, sports teams, or fraternities and sororities. Prospective students can find other newly accepted students and learn more about clubs and organizations.

There’s also an application that lets users send Rensselaer-themed virtual “gifts” to their friends. Virtual gifts include an albino squirrel, a set of diagonal stairs, a supercomputer, Puckman, and more.

To visit the new page, go to www.facebook.com/pages/Troy-NY/Rensselaer-Polytechnic-Institute/43911742356.
