Together you'll participate in small and large group sessions, listen to keynote speakers, meet new people, and attend various workshops. Throughout the week, you'll also have the chance to attend breakout sessions on topics that interest you based on the Rebel Ready Week Pillars.

Parents & Families

We encourage parents and families to join us during Rebel Ready Week for Family Day. The event is free and registration is required.

Programming will include attending a college welcome with your student, a family lunch with UNLV campus leaders, and family-specific programming about student success. Other sessions will cover the first-year experience, financial aid, and philanthropy and alumni engagement. You'll meet back up with your student for a send-off at the end of the day.
