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, please review the agenda, which will be available soon.

Discover Day, held in the Fall, is our largest open house for students interested in applying and attending UC Riverside. Programming includes application workshops, information sessions about the campus, individual college presentations to help you decide which to apply to, campus tours, housing tours and much more.

Highlander Day, held on April 9th, is our largest open house for recently admitted students for the upcoming Fall term. Programming includes next steps to enrollment, resources available, how to get involved on campus, financial aid, campus tours, and housing tours. The day is based around welcoming you into the Highlander family and showing what life at UC Riverside is all about. Students that are interested in attending UC Riverside for upcoming terms, are welcome to attend as well! There will be special information sessions just for future Highlanders.
