Red Riot

Red Riot is a great way for any high school students to experience Southern Utah University as they spend the day 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.

Your Red Riot will include:

  • Tour of campus
  • Dinner
  • Information about classes
  • T-shirt to remember the event
  • Tickets to SUU events (if an event is scheduled)
  • Scholarship advising
  • Waived application fee

We cannot wait to showcase SUU to our future Thunderbirds and their families but with the recent announcement regarding the health of our state during this COVID-19 pandemic, our university administration has been required to make some tough decisions regarding the health and safety of our campus community. With that being said, we are more dedicated than ever before to provide you with the best on-campus experience and will not be canceling our scheduled Red Riots but have to make some adjustments to the event in order to follow all campus safety protocols.

The Red Riot will be transitioning to be a day-long event on the scheduled Friday’s (see sample schedule). This means that we are no longer providing lodging accommodations for students like we have in the past. We have worked out a deal, specifically for our Red Riot attendees, with our local hotels to provide a discounted rate for any families that would like to stay the night. This is not required and students will be released at 7:30 pm in order to provide time to travel home safely that evening if you choose.

In this unprecedented time, we are all having to make adjustments in a matter of moments and we sincerely apologize that we are not able to execute the events we had originally planned. If this changes your decision to attend, we completely understand, but we would love the opportunity to connect with you regardless of how that happens. We will give every effort into making these worthwhile and showcasing all that SUU has to offer.
