LEIGH SALES, host:A new study-abroad program is attracting thousands of RPI students and their families to New York City.
The program was launched this week in the city where we began our news program earlier this week with an interactive tour of the University of Rhode Island.
I’m Mara Tymkovich, and this is TODAY with Mara.
The Rhode Island School of Design opened its new school on Friday with the opening of a three-story building that houses classrooms, labs, offices and a science center.
Its called the Rensselaer Center for Global Studies, and its about the same size as the old Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, the largest and oldest school of its kind in the country.
In the new building, the center will offer more than 20,000 undergraduates a new option to study abroad.
It’s the first Rensalely school in the U.S. to offer such a program.
Here’s the RPI president, Chris J. Lohse, who says the new school will make Rensseaer the country’s largest and most dynamic center for study abroad in the world.
It’s a big change, said Lohsee.
We wanted to make sure we were making a real commitment to our students that they have an opportunity to study overseas, to come to the U, and to stay.
The first class will come from June 25, and then we have a second class that will start in September.
We want to give them the opportunity to go to another country, and we want to make it the best place for them to be.
The new program is designed to provide students with opportunities to live in an international setting with a diverse group of people.
The center is designed for students who have a passion for a new discipline or a field that they are passionate about.
And in this particular field of study, it’s a science and technology focus.
We know that Renselaer students who come to this program, particularly with a passion or interest in this area of study will have a tremendous impact on the lives of our students, and the lives and lives of their families.
As part of this new program, Rensencare will also help students with college financial aid, as well as support their family members and help them connect with their academic advisers.
Rensselaer is a private institution.
And so students are required to make a financial contribution of about $100,000 to the Rentsselament to be eligible for the program.
The Renssellaments, who make up the University’s $2.8 billion endowment, do not make any student contributions to the university.
Lohsee says the program is one way for Rensselsselamental students to pursue a career abroad.
But, he says, it also allows them to learn about and explore different parts of the world and a variety of cultures, to meet people from different walks of life and different walks in their lives.
The school’s new building will be filled with offices, labs and classrooms that students can use for online learning, but also to socialize with other students and explore new ideas.
The center will be equipped with two lecture halls, a science lab, a technology lab, and an arts and music studio.
It has been designed to have a small student body that is more diverse than the school.
In fact, the school has already seen a rise in the number of students coming from families who are also students of color, and those who are coming from countries where their parents are not U.N. refugee quota members.
So we want students who want to be the best students to be able to do that, Lohsay said.
And they can be the most successful students.RPI is an all-women’s school, but the majority of its students are men.
So there’s a greater diversity than the Risesselaer community.
But in the end, that diversity can be really important.
So I think what it does is bring people together, because they’re going to come together, and I think that’s really important, because there are so many people who are going to be impacted by this.
And I think, in my experience, I’ve learned that the people who have really made this a really positive and successful program, and who have been able to really build an atmosphere where everyone is treated with respect, and where everyone’s able to live a normal life, and have opportunities to pursue their interests, are the people from Rens-sela-men-s.
