Come see what all the excitement is about!
At UC Riverside our faculty members have received prestigious honors. Our groundbreaking research has garnered over $100 million in federal research awards. Our athletic teams have won championships and attended national tournaments.
Highlander Day is an open house unlike any other! Join admitted and prospective students and their families interested in learning more about UCR. You'll have the opportunity to participate in five different types of tours, attend college sessions, meet our friendly faculty, and chat with current UCR students.

We do not offer any special programming for groups. You will need each student to register individually.
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 event's agenda when one 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.
