Congratulations on becoming a Baron!

Orientation is an essential part of your first-year experience, and we have designed special programs to help all students transition into campus life at RCBC. Attending a new college can be both stressful and exciting, and the Office of Student Life is here to support you during your first year and beyond.

Orientation is required for all first-time students at RCBC. We offer multiple dates and times throughout the year, but seats are limited so click the button below to sign up for an Orientation that works best for YOU!


Orientation programs are for students who are already registered and ready to begin classes, but still need an introduction to important RCBC resources to help prepare for a successful first semester. Students will learn about campus life and classes, hear from faculty and staff, and discover all that RCBC has to offer to help students achieve their academic goals.

Congratulations on becoming a Baron! If you have any questions about getting started at RCBC, feel free to reach out to us at We can't wait to meet you!
