RPI Student Life  Clustered Learning, Advocacy, and Support for Students (CLASS) is a comprehensive approach to the student experience at Rensselaer.

The Let's Go Red! Golf Tournament at the Country Club of Troy is underway! What a beautiful day and turnout. Good luck to this student life group, Travis Apgar, Steve Allard, Cameron McLean, Lisa Trahan, and Michell Tollinchi-Michel!

In the days leading up to Rensselaer's Commencement Ceremony on May 19, we are sharing profiles of some of our outstanding students.

Meet Laura Antoniello!

The day Laura Antoniello attended a campus job fair changed everything. She was an electronic media, arts, and communication (EMAC) major and the fair was geared for engineering jobs. But Hasbro was at the event and Antoniello was really interested in working at the company, having grown up near its headquarters. The Hasbro recruiter gave her valuable pointers. “When the time came, I applied for a number of internships at Hasbro and was lucky enough to interview and be selected for a digital marketing position,” recalls Antoniello, who took part in the paid internship the summer after her sophomore year. “This role sparked my passion for digital marketing, while giving me an amazing first real-world working experience.” She went on to take part in a second internship, and then a co-op, with Hasbro, working in three different departments altogether, in digital marketing, global marketing, and project engineering.

Commencement 2018: Viktor Liljegren!
For many, college coursework is difficult enough in your first language. For Swedish-born Viktor Liljegren, who will be graduating from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in business and management on May 19, navigating the last four years as a outstanding men's hockey player has been a challenge, but he is proud of what he has been able to accomplish.

Commencement 2018: Amber and Alwaleed Zia

The support of family is an integral part of any college student’s experience. In the case of Amber and Alwaleed (Al) Zia’s parents, that support meant moving the whole family from Darien, Connecticut, to Lee, Massachusetts, so that their daughter and son could commute together to and from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute daily. And together they will graduate on May 19. “RPI offers an amazing chemical engineering program,” says Amber Zia. “I was able to achieve my full potential of becoming an engineer with the academics, professors, and resources at Rensselaer. I was able to engage with faculty and students that are intrigued, innovative, and passionate about the work and learning experience.” The integration of business and technology is what is in demand in today’s corporate world, says Al Zia, who majored in business, management, and accounting. “I decided to come to RPI so that I could learn to integrate the use of technology to help become a resourceful professional within a business atmosphere. I’ve enjoyed interacting with people of diverse backgrounds to build dynamic relationships with engineers, scientists, architects, and business students that will last forever.” Read more:https://bit.ly/2KSGfHv
