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. For those who are unable to attend on Sunday, 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.

There is no official end time for the program, so feel free to make travel arrangements that are most convenient for you.

Fletcher students have graciously opened up their off-campus apartments/homes and rooms at Blakeley Hall to visiting students. When you register for the Open House, please let us know if you would like to stay overnight with a student. We are unable to accommodate guests for the overnight host program. Please note that accommodations will vary from having your own bed to sleeping on a couch in a sleeping bag. Please be sure to complete the Open House Registration by March 29.
