RISE Preview Day on November 13

RISE Preview Day(ELGIN, IL – October 26, 2017) Judson University will welcome students with intellectual disabilities, ages 18-25, to the Elgin campus (1151 N. State St., Elgin) for the last RISE Preview Day of the semester on Monday, Nov. 13.

Judson’s RISE (Road to Independent Living, Spiritual Formation and Employment) Program was launched this fall and included 12 charter students. The program gives students with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to develop life and professional skills, while earning a certificate of completion in Liberal Arts and enjoying a college experience in a Christian setting.

During their visit, prospective RISE students and their parents will learn about the history of Judson’s RISE Program, tour the 90-acre campus, enjoy lunch in the newly renovated dining hall and meet with other RISE students and student mentors. “We want prospective students and their families to see the RISE Program in action and experience how the Judson community has embraced our students,” said RISE Program Director Kathy Lambert.

The RISE Preview Day event will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration will remain open for this event through Wednesday, Nov. 8. Click here to register and find more information: http://www.judsonu.edu/RISE/RISE_Preview_Days/
