Welcome to the Rockefeller Center 24s!

This event has since past but is left here for archival purposes.


Welcome to the Rockefeller Center 24s! We hope you are able to join us on Thursday, September 10th for our open house at 1:00-1:45pm and 3:00-3:45pm. The same content will be presented at both sessions and there is a lot to explore so feel free to stop by at one or both of the sessions!

To begin your journey at our digital open house, we recommend starting in our “Welcome to Rocky” Room. You’ll hear from our Director and Deputy Director and get an overview of the Rockefeller Center. After that, feel free to jump around to our other rooms! We’ll have staff, faculty, and students available to answer your questions and talk about our many curricular and co-curricular offerings. We hope to see you there!

If you are unable to join us for our open house, we will be sharing more information about our programming on our website in the coming days. Stop by and learn more. We can’t wait to meet you!
