Ride to the Rock
Don't miss the chance to learn everything you ever wanted to know about Rockhurst University and college life. Meet other prospective students as you Ride to the Rock to experience life at Rockhurst. You'll stay overnight in a residence hall with a current student and learn about admission, financial aid, different majors and college life. You'll also have opportunities to hear about Rockhurst athletics, explore extracurricular activities, tour the campus, meet with faculty from your area of academic interest and talk to current students about their Rockhurst experience.
We have reached capacity for Ride to the Rock and registration is closed. Hopefully you are able to attend Ride to the Rock on February 21-22, Discover RU on December 6, or schedule an individual campus visit. Please visit admissions to register for any of those options.
