Experience the energy and creativity of Clarkson at Open House!

The Open House is a campus-wide event that features current students and faculty who are eager to share their excitement about undergraduate research, extracurricular activities and student projects.

There is no limit on the number of academic departments you can visit. Clarkson encourages prospective students to talk to students and faculty in any departments that interest them. There, you will learn about Clarkson's team-based learning approach and interdisciplinary programs such as Liberal Arts and Business, Environmental Science and Policy, and Engineering and Management.

The Open House also includes sessions such as a parent panel, a student panel, financial aid, and much more. You will have the chance to chat over lunch with faculty and students, and staff. In addition, learn about all the services that are available that help make our students successful.

As for the lighter side of Clarkson's campus, an activities fair is hosted by students involved with everything from the Outing Club and Ultimate Frisbee to the Pep Band and the Orchestra. Clarkson students have more than 100 clubs and organizations to choose from.

Even if you have already visited the campus, this is a great opportunity to further enhance your Clarkson experience.
