Open House for Accepted Students

Time: March 20, 2015 - 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Location: Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh


To help candidates with their graduate school decision, the INI has planned an open house event for students who have been accepted for the 2015-2016 academic year. Open-house attendees will receive valuable information from our faculty, career services staff, enrollment staff, and the Director of the INI. The INI hosts presentations, panel talks and networking activities that allow candidates to get their questions answered while enjoying a day on Carnegie Mellon's main campus in Pittsburgh.

For those who can not attend, the event will be video-recorded and posted online immediately following the event. A link to the video will be provided in the Google group for accepted students.

INI Open House for Accepted Students is a one-day event that will take place on Friday, March 20, 2015.

To assist with your planning, please plan to arrive at 8:30 for registration and breakfast. The program will begin at 9:30. Sessions will be held consecutively throughout the day. Meals will be provided, and the day will conclude with a happy hour that will allow prospective students to talk with staff, faculty and current students.
