‌Mark Your Calendar!

Orientation is August 20 – August 23, 2016

We believe that orientation programs are the foundation for your success and, therefore, require all new first-year and transfer students with less than 20 credit hours to attend all orientation events. If an emergency or situation arises and you are unable to attend, you must contact your admissions counselor or the Jane Addams Center for Civic Engagement (815-394-5143) immediately.

Throughout Orientation you will:

♦ Learn about academic expectations, including the knowledge, values and skills that contribute to your success at Rockford University
♦ Develop new friendships
♦ Participate in a variety of events
♦ Connect with your Orientation Leaders
♦ Get to know your First-Year Advisor
♦ Learn your way around campus
♦ Have Fun!
