Top 10 Tips for Communicating With Us No. 9: Attend an information session, tour, or recruitment event

Updated: March 2016

This is the ninth entry in our “Top 10″ list for you to consider when communicating with our office and applying.

Number 9 – Attend an information session, tour, or recruitment event

While I realize not everyone can make it to New York, if you can visit campus the best way to obtain information is to attend an information session.  If you live nearby or are visiting New York attending a session is probably the best way to learn about our programs and how to put together a competitive application.  Due to the large number of visitors and our small staff we are unable to arrange walk in appointments.  You are always welcome to visit and someone will assist you, however we are rarely able to provide extensive individual counseling appointments. The Office of Admissions is open 9am – 5pm, Monday through Friday, and there are usually current students or admissions officers available to chat briefly with anyone who stops in with a question.

If you would like to attend an information session or attend a SIPA tour, you can see our schedule of upcoming sessions within the Information Sessions or Tour tab on the Visit SIPA website. Click on the information session for the programs that interest you and then register for the date you can attend on the calendar that appears.

SIPA admissions officers also attend recruitment events in the U.S. and abroad.  You can view our recruitment schedule on the Visit SIPA website as well. You can find the information within the Off-Campus Events/Recruitment Calendar section. However, you are always welcome to come to the office during business hours and ask a few questions or obtain information.
