Ask University of Rochester admissions officers questions about what it takes to get admitted to University of Rochester, their application process, academics, and more.

University of Rochester has shut down campus visits and tours due to the coronavirus outbreak, and many families are missing out on the opportunity to learn about the college first hand from admissions staff on campus. Libby Browne will start the session with an in-depth overview of University of Rochester, covering topics ranging from admissions to academics to campus life. In the second half of the session, she'll open the floor to an audience Q&A session and answer your questions about University of Rochester admissions, life on campus, and more.
