Red Riot

Red Riot is a great way for any high school student to experience Southern Utah University as they spend the weekend with fellow future T-Birds and current SUU students.

What Happens at Red Riot?

Red Riot is the perfect chance for you to get a feel for SUU - campus, student life, academics, everything! If you want clarity on where to go to college and truly experience campus life before committing, attending a Red Riot is the place for you. See a Sample Schedule. 

For only $25, your Red Riot will include:

  • Tour of campus
  • Meals (Friday evening & Saturday morning)
  • Overnight accommodations
  • Tickets to SUU events
  • Information about classes
  • T-shirt to remember the event
  • Scholarship advising
  • Waived application fee

We cannot wait to showcase SUU to our future Thunderbirds and their families but know our events might look a little different this year. Our team will be following State and CDC guidelines to ensure that all parties are safe while visiting. We are closely monitoring proper procedures, positive cases in our communities, and will continue following all recommendations as they change. If there are any significant changes or event cancellations, you will be notified by email prior to the event. We hope to see you here for the ultimate student-life experience!
