Don’t miss UCR’s biggest event for admitted students!
UCR’s Discover Day is the campus event that has parents asking, “Why can’t other schools do it like this!?”
At Discover Day, you’ll chat with our faculty, hang out with our current students, learn about our many academic programs, and take a student-led campus tour. UCR is one of the fastest growing universities in the state. Check out our new facilities and discover why so many students are now selecting UC Riverside as their first choice university.

Although you have been admitted to the Pre-business program (housed in CHASS), the hope is that you will one day become a full major in Business Administration (housed in SoBA). For this reason, the School of Business Administration is fully involved in recruitment and would like you to attend sessions and events specifically designed for and focused on this major. If you are not sure you want to be a Business Administration major, feel free to attend another event.
Yes. However, 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.
Discover Day is a way for you to become more familiar with the campus, the college you have been admitted to, and the major you intend to study. If you are unsure about your major, it's 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, and much, much more planned. For details, please review the agenda.
Discover Day, held in February for 2015, is focused almost exclusively on academic programs. Programming is led by the colleges and each event focuses on the individual college to which you have been admitted.
Highlander Day, held next year on April 18, is much broader and emphasizes the college and UCR experience. Sessions are offered on several aspects of campus life, not just academics. There are also sessions that your parents might be interested in, which cover topics such as Financial Aid and how parents can be involved in their student’s university experience.
