Visit the Number One university in the country!
Based on the Obama Administration’s plans to create its own college ranking system (emphasizing criteria such as graduation rates, affordability and the financial aid available to students), Time Magazine ranks UC Riverside as the Number One university in the country! (2014)
There is no open house like Highlander Day. Come join over 10,000 people who are interested in learning more about UCR. You'll have the opportunity to participate in 5 different types of tours, attend college sessions, meet faculty and chat with current UCR students. Not only will you learn more about UCR, but you'll have fun while you explore the campus.
Registration will be available soon, so check back often for updates!
Parking is free in Lot 30. Please follow the large yellow directional signs for Highlander Day parking. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing.
While it's not a requirement for you to show up at 10:00 a.m., please keep in mind that the first session will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. and most sessions are not repeated. Your best bet is to take a look at the agenda for Highlander Day as soon as it becomes available and plan your day from there
Highlander Day will go on rain or shine. All presentations listed on the agenda are conducted indoors. Safety of our guests and UCR personnel is most important so outdoor programing may change or be cancelled last minute due to weather conditions.
