Dear Graduate School Recruiter:
This year’s Rochester (NY) Area Colleges Graduate School Program will be held at five different colleges. While the event is open to students from all of the 17 Rochester area colleges and universities, student attendees at each site will primarily be from the host campuses. You may attend one or more or all of these events for one registration fee.
Registration: Registration will open mid-June 2014 via a new link. The deadline to register is October 10, 2014. No refunds will be made after this date. There is a single $150.00 registration fee that includes participation and meals at one or more of the five sites, for up to two representatives (per site) from your graduate program.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Capacity at the individual campus sites varies and historically this event has filled well in advance of the published deadline. Be sure to register promptly to reserve your space! Alfred University and Rochester Institute of Technology are very limited on space. Recruiters will be asked to share tables.
Questions about registration for the overall program and requests for special accommodations may be directed to the Department of Career Development at SUNY Geneseo--(585) 245-5722. CLICK ON (RECRUITER DIRECTIONS, MAPS AND LODGING) FOR EVENT INFORMATION, INCLUDING CAMPUS MAPS, DIRECTIONS AND LODGING INFORMATION.
Table Set-up: Please bring your own banner or table signage. No A/V or electrical outlets will be available at any of the sites. Table size varies from site to site.
