Rattlers RISE

Rattlers RISE is Residential Development Communities (RDCs) that align with the University’s Strategic Plan, FAMU Rising, by “intensifying student success initiatives to improve retention and persistence, expanding academic support services, facilitating a seamless transition of AA transfers to the University, increasing the number of students engaged in study abroad or international educational experiences, and creating an Exceptional Student Experience.”

The Office of University Housing works with multiple campus partners including the Career and Professional Development Center to deliver two RDCs under the name Rattlers RISE. The Second Year Experience and The Transfer Student Experience. The Second Year Experience is intended for rising sophomores who currently live on FAMU’s campus in a residential facility.  The Transfer Student Experience is aimed at newly admitted transfer students.  Through these partnerships, participants will: have dedicated live-in staff, have peer mentors and tutors, prepare for obtaining internships, leadership and community opportunities, access to campus job opportunities, and increased study abroad prospects.
