RPI Class of 2024 Thread

StudentsR1stStudentsR1st 121 replies8 threads Junior Member
There have been a lotof comments by myself and others in the various threads. The purpose of this thread is to enable open discussion regarding decisions to apply to or enroll at RPI as a member of the class of 2024.

The most recent editorial in the school newspaper (the Poly) "What we think prospective students should know" is a good starting point.

    Some alumni are very concerned about RPI. The following articles from the Albany Times Union may be of interest.

    There are now 2 groups saying they are in charge of the alumni association and litigation may (I think probably) be pending. There are also many documents all prospective students (and their families) should be aware of at

    Full disclosure I am a member of Renew Rensselaer. I do think that the Times Union articles present both sides of the argument and many of the documents on the Renew Rensselaer site are objective (financials, common data set, etc). I suggested the link so prospective students (and their parents) could jump to the meat/facts.

    To all prospective members of the Class of 2024 ask about CLASS (mandatory on-campus housing sophomore year). Ask about ARCH (mandatory on-campus -including housing term during the Summer between So and Jr years, one semester off-campus mandatory during Jr year).

    RPI Housing Requirements
    All students for freshman year
    All students for sophomore year except for those in fraternities/sororities
    All students for summer between sophomore and junior year.
    If a student joins a fraternity or sorority 3/5 of their first 5 terms will be in campus housing, otherwise it is 5/5.
    Note housing requires a meal plan.
