Students are the heart of the Rensselaer community. A Rensselaer education is challenging, interactive, and highly relevant. Students immerse themselves in course work that combines theory with learning by experience in unparalleled facilities, using advanced technology. In this environment, students learn to recognize needs, visualize solutions, and initiate change in every realm of society.

In the weeks leading up to Commencement, Strategic Communications and External Relations captured videos of a select group of members of the Class of 2017. They shared stories of how their experiences at Rensselaer—whether in class, in the lab, or through participation in a club or outreach organization—have helped to transform them.
