On-Campus Orientation


Our on-campus orientation is meant for students who will be taking on-campus classes during their time at RMCAD. This program is an in-person orientation that only needs to be attended by those students who are enrolled in campus classes. Attendance at on-campus orientation is highly recommended and encouraged.

Fall A Orientation is for those students who are starting as campus students on August 31, 2015. This Orientation will be held on Friday, August 28 and Saturday, August 29, 2015.

The exact schedules will be released in a few weeks. Friday will be informational sessions, opportunities to meet faculty and staff, as well as interact with other new students. Saturday will be an opportunity for students to participate in our Civic Engagement program and get out into the community. There will be a cookout afterwards for all participants.
