Your success is our success, so we want to prepare you as much as possible for your first day. New Student Orientation (and the Get Connected Booklet) will:

  • Welcome you to RDC
  • Connect you to new and continuing students
  • Introduce you to your School, program and faculty
  • Familiarize you with the campus layout, including where you can find your classes
  • Provide you with information regarding college services and resources
  • Encourage student experiences and student life outside of the classroom

Interested in attending? Check back soon to register.

Why should you come to New Student Orientation (NSO)?
Students that come to NSO succeed more in the classroom and in all aspects of their college experience. Learn what services are available throughout your educational experience, how to access them and how they relate to you. Making introductions with classmates and familiar faces at the college helps with first-day jitters. Everyone likes to see someone they recognize. Don’t forget your classroom numbers so you can find them.

Enrolled at the Donald School of Business?
Head downtown to the Donald School of Business for a welcome from the Deans, a tour of the campus as well as program-specific orientations. There will be a bus to take students from the main RDC entrance to Donald School of Business after lunch, and will bring you back to main campus. Alternatively, you can find information on parking at the Donald School of Business here.
