  • And last but not least… you’ll take a deeper dive into your new community by being introduced to the resources available across campus. They will support you during your time at RU and beyond.
Please note: Crimson Day is the first step in becoming oriented to the RU community. Before you can submit your registration for the event, you must submit a $100 non-refundable fee.
