About OHP
Our Overnight Hosting Program (or OHP) is a yearly tradition where current RSS freshmen host newly admitted students for a night in the honors residence hall. The OHP happens during Decision UC Davis weekend annually. This year that falls on April 7 – 8, 2017. OHP often proves a highlight in the college search. RSSers who attend frequently list it as either a deciding or reassuring factor that made them choose Davis over other top schools.

Newly admitted Regents Scholars will be sent a link via email through which they can RSVP. The number of prospective students we can host depends on the availability of current freshmen to host the prospective students in Currant Hall.

Our event formally starts with RSS guides taking students from Wright Hall to Currant Hall for the start of OHP.

The itinerary for this year’s program is as follows:

Friday, April 7th
4pm-5pm: Currant Hall main lounge: Following the Regents Scholars Reception and UHP Event, we will have introductions and breakout info sessions by college. During this time, parents will meet with RSS Officers.
5pm-6pm: Campus: We will be having exclusive tours and time to meet fellow prospective students with sports and board games.
6pm-7:30pm: Tercero Dining Commons: After tours and games, we will bring students to dinner with their hosts.
7:30pm-9pm: Downtown Davis: Time for dessert in downtown, and socialization with other Regents Scholars.
9pm-11pm: Currant Hall: After getting back, people can start getting ready for bed or talk with RSS members more about their college and life experiences.

Saturday, April 8th
8am-9:45am: Wake-up: It's time for Decision Day! After a group breakfast, our program ends and you are free to join the school-wide event or use Saturday as you see fit.
