2015 Fall Kickoff and Orientation

Come to the new student orientation from 10:00am - 3:30pm and meet the faculty, staff and fellow students.  You’ll learn a lot about how RTS works: everything from chapel to class schedules and much in between. Please bring a copy of your health insurance card for documentation. We will be providing a free lunch that day for new students.

Fall 2015 Convocation

We mark our studies with corporate worship in our chapel as we have our annual academic convocation service at 11:00 a.m with RTS-Orlando President, Dr. Don Sweeting, speaking. Then we will have a free lunch for all students to mingle and mix with staff and faculty.

RTS Fall Kick-off Cookout and Concert

Gather this evening to celebrate the new academic year with a cookout from 5:30-7:30 p.m., to which you can bring your family for free. And at 7:30 p.m., we will host a free concert by the RTS Collective, a group of students who have just released a CD of hymns and praise songs, in our chapel. That concert is open to the wider public.
