A Rensselaer Legacy is a student or alumnus/a who has a relative who is a student or alumnus/a of Rensselaer — mother, father, sister, brother, etc.

The Rensselaer Legacy Program recognizes you for making a Rensselaer education part of your family tradition. The program helps you, as very important members of the Rensselaer community, to stay in touch with the Institute and with other Legacies through special programs, events, and networking opportunities, and rewards you for your continued generational support of Rensselaer.

Do you think you are a Rensselaer Legacy?

If one of your relatives attended or attends Rensselaer, sign up online or contact the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni@rpi.edu or (518) 276-6205, and you will be added to this exclusive Rensselaer program.

Legacies at Commencement

In celebration of your graduation and of your family’s continuation of the Rensselaer tradition, a section of preferred seating on the East Campus Stadium Field is designated especially for Legacies.

Legacy Pin

All Legacies are presented with a pin that will identify you as someone with a special connection to Rensselaer.
