Orientation Schedule Breakdown

While this week’s focus is attention to orientation and preparation for your group this is only one component of training. The most successful RPL’s understand that New Student Orientation is much broader and that RPL’s are responsible for welcoming ALL new students to Rosemont.

To better prepare you for the actual days of New Student Orientation, provided below is an outline of what RPL’s will be doing generally on each day of Orientation Weekend. *Note that this is subject to change, and more details will be provided during training.
