Off-Campus Events

Throughout the year, Rochester admissions counselors, financial aid counselors, current students, parents, and alumni host a variety of events across the country. Our admissions counselors visit hundreds of high schools throughout the year and attend countless college fairs across the nation. Off-campus events are great opportunities for students and parents to learn more about Rochester from the people who know it best, without traveling far from home.
