Freshman FOCUS Program

Mission and Goals of the Program

The RISE freshman FOCUS program aims to provide students with the best opportunities to get acclimated to the University of Pittsburgh. This program focuses on helping students develop skills needed to succeed throughout their first year of college.

Once you have completed the RISE freshman FOCUS program you will be eligible for the RISE book scholarship for the remainder time in the program.

This program will meet once a month concentrating on the social change model. This model will challenge you as a student to come out of your comfort zones, make friends, network, and become social change agents for your reminder time at the University of Pittsburgh.
