Residents in Science and Engineering (RiSE)

RiSE is a living-learning community for freshmen in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. The RiSE program is designed to ease student’s transition to college by promoting academic success, encouraging professional development, and providing opportunities to become engaged students. RiSE incorporates a number of features seen in other living-learning communities including academic support through tutoring services, clustered courses, and increased opportunities for social interaction. Some of the unique features of this community include the involvement of a Faculty Director and the support of the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences Academic Advising Center also housed in Lever Hall. Lever Hall has room for approximately 400 students.

Students who participate in the RiSE program have the opportunity to live with their classmates, and interact with faculty and academic advisors on a daily basis. For more information on how to be a part of this exciting program please visit the RiSE web page.

Please note that Housing priority for all new students is based on the admissions application date (not commit date) to the University, not on the date you applied for housing.
