Important Message Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Right now, we would like nothing more than to welcome you to campus. However, following New York State recommendations related to large gatherings and in an abundance of care for your family and ours, we have made the decision to suspend all campus visits, student-led tours and admissions programming until further notice.

We understand that this cancellation is disruptive and disappointing. As soon as the global health situation allows, we will resume on-campus visitation. In the interim, we hope you can participate in our virtual sessions listed below. All times listed are EDT.
