The Rising

Welcome to The Rising, Lenoir-Rhyne University's first-rate orientation program!

On Friday, August 22,  you'll begin your career as a Lenoir-Rhyne Univeristy student. It's our job to make sure that you get off to a great start!


What is The Rising?

The Rising is more than the name of our orientation program. It's what happens to students during the orientation experience.  Students begin orientation as strangers, but by the end of the first day, they have formed a firm social network!

By the end of the second day, students know just enough about the place to be dangerous -- the location of their classes; tasty places to eat in the local community; which orientation group has the most school spirit; and what it feels like to do community service with your professors. Students may also learn important stuff like who has the best dance moves; who does the best cannon ball from a 20' diving board; and all the fun that goes with hanging with lots of like-minded new friends.  

By the end of day three, students will be ready to launch their academic career, and to give and get the most from LRU.

Ready. Set. Rise up!
