Congratulations on your acceptance to Rhode Island College! We're excited to see you at Orientation!
Quickly Understand Orientation
Orientation helps make transitioning to RIC both comfortable and enjoyable. This two-day comprehensive program, designed to welcome and acclimate new students and families to the college, is an interactive program where you'll:
- learn about campus resources
- engage in conversations with faculty
- hear about student organizations and clubs
- meet new classmates
- work with an advisor to create a class schedule
- receive a student ID and parking pass
Please Note: Because of all that is accomplished at orientation, attending both days is mandatory for all first-year students. If you will be living on-campus, staying overnight in the dorms is required. If you will be commuting to campus you have the option of staying overnight in the dorms, but all students need to attend the second day of orientation.
