Virtual Spring Open Houses Set for Prospective Students, Families
SUNY Plattsburgh is hosting two virtual spring open house events Saturday, April 4 and Saturday, April 25, special events to give prospective students a look at the college from the safety and comfort of home.
With social distancing and stay-home orders making in-person visits impossible, the Office of Admissions is doing the next best thing and offering students the same open house schedule remotely. Student and their families can connect live for chats with faculty and staff, take student-led virtual tours of campus and learn more about majors, student life and campus services.
Each Saturday event will feature:
