RMU-Lead Pre-Orientation Program

August 16-19, 2015

Jump-start your Robert Morris University career by participating in the new RMU-Lead Pre-Orientation Program before the University’s formal orientation begins on August 20, 2015.   The RMU-Lead Program is an optional opportunity that takes place just before orientation for all first-year students and is focused around leadership development.  The program will help students to:

  • Ease your transition from high school to college life at RMU;
  • Connect you with fellow students who share similar interests;
  • Develop a strong network with both peers, faculty, and staff members prior to the start of classes; 
  • Learn from and be mentored by upper-level students;
  • Develop an appreciation for diversity and a global perspective; 
  • Get excited and be confident about your decision to attend RMU!

This experience is ideal for new RMU students looking to continue their track record of being a student leader. Our goal is that RMU-Lead participants start classes comfortable with RMU’s campus, connected to dozens of fellow RMU students, curious about who you will become with an RMU education, and confident that you will learn & succeed at Robert Morris University.

Programming will focus on making connections with other emerging and current student leaders, adapting to the changes that come with college courses, sharing a unique experience in nearby downtown Pittsburgh, and of course further developing the leader you already are!

Incoming resident students will move into their 2015-2016 housing assignment. Commuter students should arrange for their own transportation to campus for each day of the program.

The cost for the RMU-Lead Program is $300 (includes all meals, program materials, activities and events, and extras).  Space is limited to the first fifty (50) paid registrants. Payment is required a time of application in order to secure your reservation.  

Who is eligible? All incoming freshmen not already committed to an RMU program that requires an early move-in during RMU-Lead. These include the honors program, band, dance team, cheerleaders, Early Success Program (ESP), Women's Leadership & Mentoring Program, or fall athletics.

Registration for RMU-Lead 2015 will begin in April 2015.
