Yes, but please note that content will be specific to each college. For example, only majors in the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (CNAS) will be discussed at the CNAS Sessions. Also, because UC Riverside is a selective campus and majors are impacted, it is advisable for you to contact your admission counselor as soon as possible to see about changing your major, particularly if you are thinking about moving to a different college.
Highlander Day is a way for you to learn a bit more about the campus, the college you have been admitted to, and life at UC Riverside. If you are unsure about your major, Highlander Day is a great opportunity to explore your options. We have presentations from faculty, staff and students, campus tours, housing tours, department open houses, lunch at the Highlander Union Building, all day entertainment and much, much more planned. For details, an agenda will be made available closer to the event's date.
