UPCOMING EVENTS

WELCOME WEEK ACTIVITIES
Dates: Wednesday, September 3 & Thursday, September 4
Time: 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Tuesday was orientation, and you are now ready to mix learning and fun with Student Life's motto "College is more than just going to class!" Make sure that on both days you spend some time between classes in the College Center. On Wednesday stop by J-Dogs’ ice cream cart and pick up an ice cream sandwich, creamsicle or nutty buddy cone. If you're missing the summer days and need a pick-me-up, then be sure to get yourself a free refreshing frozen lemonade drink on Thursday. Also, see if you can spot the Roadrunner roaming on campus, stop and take a selfie with him and grab a giveaway while you're at it!  
 
During the week please make it a point to stop at the Welcome Tent (outside of the Library entrance) where you can pick up a Student Handbook, gather some RCGC giveaways and enjoy a pretzel or water on your way to class.
