Important Update- Virtual Honors Convocation

Virtual Honors Convocation November 20

The Rensselaer Honors Convocation, an annual tradition that celebrates the exceptional academic achievements of our students and the distinguished members of our faculty, will be held virtually on Nov. 20.

Because the COVID-19 pandemic did not allow us to celebrate last year, we will be honoring the 2020 and 2021 Rensselaer Medalists and Graduate Fellows at this year’s ceremony. In addition, the ceremony will honor 4.0 GPA students and the Founders Award of Excellence recipients.

We hope you will tune in on You Tube! A link will be posted closer to the event date.
