New Student Orientation

Fall 2019 Orientation - August 30-September 3

RMC’s New Student Orientation is a four-day experience designed to:

  • familiarize you with our campus and the Billings area;

  • acclimate you to the social and academic atmosphere you will encounter;

  • solidify your connection to the Rocky community before classes begin.

Our main purpose for Orientation is to assist new students in making positive transitions to college life by preparing them for success in the classroom and within the greater RMC community. At Orientation you will interact with your classmates, faculty, staff, and student leaders who will support you throughout your college career. You’ll explore the surrounding area, serve the community, make new friends and have a lot of fun!

Below are brief descriptions of the themes and goals for each day.
