RISE Celebrates 25th Anniversary
(1996 - 2021)
Effective Tuesday, November 24th, the Rio Salado Surprise building will close until further notice and RISE classes will continue to meet via Zoom.
Rio Salado College and RISE, as a student organization of the college, have set a policy that NO classes are allowed to meet in person through March 2021. This includes the Non-Fiction Book Club and Hooked on Books Book Club. (The Book Clubs should not meet off campus in a private setting and Rio/RISE will not accept responsibility or liability for any in-home affair that appears to be a Rio/RISE event.)
All classes must be scheduled and held via Zoom during this period of time. Additional information regarding in-person classes will be posted when received from Rio Salado.
**Universal Class is free with RISE membership. 500+ FREE online, instructor-led classes. The classes can be taken from any computer, anywhere. Check the catalog for more information.

Important Information re: Cancellations and Changes
During our in-person classes when we have to cancel or change a class date, it is very difficult to get the message to everyone. The process we follow is first of all to email everyone who has registered for the class and call the people who do not have an email listed. If the class cancels at the last minute, we call everyone who has registered for that class. We then send an email blast about the cancelled class to those who have email and note the cancellation on the home page of the RISE website, www.riselearning.org.
If the class cancels ahead of time, a sign is printed and posted on the RISE bulletin board and on the windows by the classroom.
Currently, when a Zoom on-line class cancels, we will notify the class of the cancellation, and also send an eBlast to all members who may be considering registering for the class.
Do you know someone you think would make a great presenter for RISE? Do you have an idea for a subject that we haven’t touched on yet? We would LOVE to hear from you!
