Thank you for your interest in Cornell Engineering and our high school senior visitation program. 

 

Cornell Engineering is pleased to offer the Spring Engineering Diversity Hosting Weekend (EDHW) Program. Spring EDHW is a great opportunity for admitted students to come see what Cornell Engineering and the university as a whole have to offer!

Registration for the Spring 2016 Engineering Diversity Hosting Weekend Program (EDHW) for admitted students will open mid-March 2016

This program will provide you with an insider's view into life as a Cornell Engineer. During EDHW you will have the opportunity to:

  • Stay in a residence hall with a current student
  • Participate in an interactive lab demonstration
  • Interact with faculty, staff, and students
  • Learn about the opportunities and resources available to Cornell Engineers

In addition, you will be able to engage with members of several of our award-winning engineering student organizations including:

Notes about the program:

  • The spring EDHW Program is for admitted Engineering students only (graduating in Spring 2016) and has a particular focus on first- generation college students and/or students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in engineering (African American/Black, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Native Hawaiian, Native Pacific Islander and Native Alaskan).
  • Registration is first come, first served and fills quickly.
  • Registration will open in March 2016.

Other Visit Options:

We know that the opportunity to visit campus is an important factor in identifying if Cornell is what you are looking for in a college experience. To help make the most of your visit, prospective first-year students are also encouraged to attend a Cornell Engineering Information Session, as well as a student-led tour of the Engineering Quad, when available. Engineering Information Sessions are offered throughout the summer and fall months on most Mondays and Fridays and select Saturdays.
