RISE Multicultural Pre-Orientation 

RISE is an in-person, three-day overnight program prior to University Orientation. RISE participants stay in an on-campus hall until the last day. 

Students who participate in RISE are eligible for early drop-off of their belongings to their assigned residence hall. The student's residence hall must be specified on the RISE registration interest form.

Note: This is only a time to drop off belongings. Students will be able to return for move-in after checking out of RISE on the final day.
