We believe the community students experience at Rochester University should not end at graduation. Warrior Adventures are opportunities for Rochester University alumni to stay connected after moving on from their studies at RU. Come re-engage with us at one of the following events! If you are a Rochester University, Rochester College, or Michigan Christian College alum who wishes to participate in the Alumni Board, which oversees these events, please reach out to Emily Monterosso at emonterosso@rc.edu.
