Rocky Mountain College is a private, 4-year institution of higher learning that was founded in 1878 and located in the city of Billings, Montana.
The school is a comprehensive liberal arts college that provides over 25 professionally-oriented majors. Originally, Rocky Mountain College was called Montana Collegiate Institute. Through the next couple of decades, the school changed its name and relocated to its present day location. Since its foundation, the school has been affiliated with the United Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the United Church of Christ. Today, Rocky Mountain College is accredited through the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
In addition to activities, RMC offers a wide range of student activities to enhance the college experience for students. The student activities are divided into two main parts. “Rocktivities” are planned by students for students and typically involve more social activities. Like true Montana fashion, the other part is outdoor recreation. This involves many exciting adventures like whitewater kayaking, hiking, fishing, and many more. The school also offers intramural sports. The total enrollment is a little over 1,000 students; predominantly undergraduate students. About 98% of all students are enrolled full-time. The student body ratio is around 51% female and 49% male.
