Admissions Provides Details of Class of '05, Student Life Changes

Joe Pilaro writes, "Some interesting statistics on this fall's incoming class. There are 1147 enrolling freshmen: that represents the largest class applying to Rensselaer since 1986. Two hundred ninety-three (293) are women, 84 are minority students, 48 are legacies, and 204 are Rensselaer Medal recipients. The average SAT score is 1305."

"Also, beginning in the fall of 2002, first-year students will not be allowed to bring cars to campus. The reasoning for the decision is that the first-year experience is such an important part of the student's connection to Rensselaer and to his/her classmates, that we want to incentivize students to spend as much time as possible around the campus and among its people. This was the reason given in 1951, my freshman year!"

"We will be calling for Admissions Volunteers in August for the Fall 2001 series of College Fairs to be held at New Jersey High Schools during September and October. If you've relocated, have a new job, etc., please forward all new information to Gloria Pappas in the Admissions Office at pappag@rpi.edu and to JF Pilaro at BRAEmgb@aol.com. Thanks and have a great summer!"
