Registration for the 2019 RISE one-day summit is currently open.

RISE is a one-day summit for first-year and transfer students designed to reinforce the information and resources that were first presented at orientation.

  • If you’re looking for academic resources to help make your second semester your best yet, RISE is for you.
  • If you want to get more involved in extracurricular activities, RISE is for you.
  • And if you’re still trying to find your place here at UT Austin, RISE is for you.

RISE will equip you with the tools you need to start next semester off on the right path. Choose from a variety of sessions on topics like time management, healthy living, study skills, financial tips, and more. You’ll leave RISE with the confidence you need to navigate the rest of your first year and succeed both in and outside the classroom.

Students will be able to choose from a variety of sessions including:

  • Study Smarter, Not Harder
  • Time & Procrastination
  • Major & Career Decisions – 5 Tips for Finding your Path
  • Transfer-mational Skills: Leveraging Transfer Student Resilience
  • Success Through Resilience Workshop
  • Stuff Happens: How the Dean of Students Can Help
  • Thriving Mentally and Physically at UT
  • Connecting to Campus Clubs
  • A Longhorn’s Guide to Financial Aid

RISE is presented by New Student Services in partnership with the Senate of College Councils
