Virtual CRP Graduate Open House for Admitted Students, Spring 2021
Virtual Open House
We are thrilled at the prospect of seeing you here in Ithaca as a student in August. At this time, however, we are working to ensure that the university's travel and events policies designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are properly observed. Unfortunately, this means that the Department of City and Regional Planning (CRP) cannot host you and your peers for an in-person open house event. This year's open house will be held on Friday, March 26, and Saturday, March 27. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
