When August rolls around, new students attend RendezBlue, a series of social and educational activities that are scheduled for the weekend leading up to the start of fall semester classes. It is free and open to all students! See the 2019 Rendezblue schedule here.
RendezBlue includes Convocation, Rockypalooza, and a weekend of social entertainment events that allow students time to get settled into their new surroundings in preparation for their first semester.
Parents and family members are welcome to attend Convocation in the Kimmel Arena. After Convocation ends, students will depart to participate in Rockypalooza.
Visit the Transition & Parent Programs website for additional information about our orientation programs and resources for first-year, first generation, transfer, and Veteran students.
