RCG Goals

RCG is designed to help new international students:

  • To bond with one another and create a pre-arrival community that will hopefully last throughout college. 

  • To start building a support system with peers, PLCs, staff, and more. 

  • To form a mindset that values communication and critical thinking.

  • To have some fun.
