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 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.
