When August rolls around, new students attend rendezblue, a series of social and educational activities that are scheduled for the weekend leading up to the start of fall semester classes. rendezblue 2014 will be held Friday, August 15 - Sunday, August 17, 2014, and is kicked off by Rockypalooza.
rendezblue includes Convocation, Rockypalooza, and a weekend of social entertainment events that allow students time to get settled in to their new surroundings in preparation for their first semester.
After Convocation, join us for a fun-filled night of activities, games, prizes, food, and community! Meet classmates, faculty, staff, and a host of Rocky Fans at this high energy event sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs. Receive some free "SWAG" that welcomes you to UNC Asheville! Rockypalooza is the only dinner option for residential students as the Dining Hall is closed that evening, and yes, you can use your meal plan to come to the picnic and join in the festivities.
