New Student Orientation

Tuesday, January 2, 2018

9:30 a.m. (check-in 9:15 - 9:30 a.m.)

New Student Orientation 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

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?
There will be a bus to take students from RDC main campus to the Donald School of Business after lunch for Career Launch and a tour of the DSB; and will bring you back to main campus at 2:15 p.m. Alternatively, you can find information on parking at the Donald School of Business here.


Parking at RDC is limited. Purchase your parking for your school term today! No need to wait, head online and click on the APPLY FOR PARKING button.
On January 2, parking for NSO will be free in designated, marked areas.
