Rocky Mountain College
Rocky Mountain College is the oldest college in Montana, founded in 1878. Its history demonstrates a commitment to excellence and openness to all points of view. The College finds strength by joining a liberal arts tradition and the heritage of practical training for specific careers. The union of three distinct religious traditions has resulted in a church-related college that considers all questions in an open and non-sectarian manner.
The campus of Rocky Mountain College occupies approximately 60 park-like acres in a residential section of Billings. Evergreen trees, shrubs, and perennials make the campus particularly welcoming. Billings offers all of the benefits of a big-city life with small-town Montana hospitality. Students can partake in activities that vary from the opera to the rodeo or high-end shopping to extreme rock climbing.
The College recognizes the educational value of co-curricular activities. There are a variety of student activities provided by the College such as athletics, outdoor recreation, theatre, community service, music, clubs, and campus ministry. Through participation, a student may gain an understanding of fellow students, increase his or her desire to serve the world, and acquire the skills necessary to live and work with others.
Rocky Mountain College educates future leaders through liberal arts and professional programs that cultivate critical thinking, creative expression, ethical decision-making, informed citizenship, and professional excellence. Built on core themes of academic excellence, transformational learning, and shared responsibility and stewardship, the College prides itself on continuously improving and producing well-rounded, community-minded graduates.
