Navigating Rensselaer & Beyond
* *

Highlights from last year’s NRB program.

Moving In

Plan to arrive on campus on Tuesday, August 19 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Some students may need to arrive earlier for athletics or ROTC, and will be notified accordingly by their coaches or commanding officer.

When you arrive on campus, residence hall staff will be available to welcome you and your families, answer questions, and help you get settled into your new home. You will receive your room key and meet your roommate and resident assistant.

Throughout the day, you can take care of your long-distance telephone access, open a bank account, or browse through the bookstore. Your first floor meeting occurs that evening.

Navigating Rensselaer & Beyond (NRB)

This week-long program is packed with fun, challenging activities, and interactive ways to meet your classmates and become familiar with the campus. It all begins when you move in and get settled on Tuesday, August 19, and continues through the first day of classes on Monday, August 25.

Navigating Rensselaer & Beyond will include wilderness activities (the chance to go kayaking, rowing, or hiking), historical and cultural activities (performing arts groups and local attractions), and community service opportunities (including Habitat for Humanity).

A complete schedule with registration materials will be mailed as part of your Student Orientation confirmation packet. Completed NRB registration forms are due at the Office of the First-Year Experience no later than June 30, 2014.

Contacting the Office of the First-Year Experience

Most all of your questions concerning living arrangements, laundry, phones, dining halls, etc. will be answered at Student Orientation. However, if you need immediate assistance, please contact FYE at (518) 276-6864 or e-mail fye@rpi.edu.
