April Open House

We invite you to join us at our Open House for admitted students. The Open House is designed to give you an inside look at life at Fletcher and all we have to offer. From class visits to small roundtable discussions to current student interactions, the day is full of opportunities for you to meet with our faculty, students and staff.

We coordinate our Open House with several peer institutions to allow convenient travel between Boston, New York, and Washington, DC, with our event traditionally coming first. With our Open House scheduled annually for Monday, we are pleased to invite early-arriving Open House attendees to join us for a Reception and Alumni Panel on Sunday evening. Unfortunately, this year’s Sunday session falls during Passover and on Easter Sunday. For those who are unable to attend on Sunday because of these holidays, we hope you will still consider attending the full day of activities on Monday. Of course, if you are unable to attend the Open House, we welcome you to visit campus at any time.
Note that we will have appropriate food available for all guests at the reception on Sunday and for Monday’s breakfast and lunch.
