The College provides an orientation for all new students and their parents prior to the opening of the fall semester. The program, involving administration, faculty, and student leaders, is designed to acquaint both students and parents with the traditions, expectations, and resources of the Roberts Wesleyan College community.
The Office of Career Services is committed to providing a wide variey of services to meet the needs of Roberts Wesleyan College students. The goal of the Office of Career Services is to prepare students for entering the world of work or for continuing their education upon graduation. The staff is available to assist students in understanding how their interest, abilities, experiences, and values influence their career decisions. Services include individual career advisement, online career assessments, workshops, class seminars, and events for graduate school, job, and internship placement.
Chapel/Spiritual Life Program
One of the three emphases of the Roberts Wesleyan College mission is "Spiritual Formation" in the lives of individuals and the campus community. Worship Chapels, held on Mondays and Wednesdays, offer students and the entire community the opportunity to worship together--to pray, praise God, and hear from the Christian scriptures. The goal is to help all of us form a Christian worldview that guides us as we follow in the way of Jesus Christ.
Faith Integration Fridays represent a different kind of spiritual formation opportunity that is more active, dialogical and participatory. Performing arts, panel discussions, movies, service projects, musical events and special Church Year services become meaningful points to integrate our faith and living.
Because of the importance of faith in our lives and community, we require students to attend a minimum of 22 chapels each semester with at least one Worship Chapel or Faith Integration Event each week of the semester.
In addition to chapel, RWC has multiple opportunities for spiritual growth through small groups and campus ministries such as worship team, drama ministry, intercity ministry, and the like. Different ministries are facilitated by the students, the Chaplain's office, and faculty and staff. RWC also makes available a number of mission trip experiences each year where faith can be put into action as we gain a global understanding of God's love for all people.
We also encourage everyone in our RWC community to connect with a local church since we believe that God ultimately is forming His people in and through the fellowship and worship of the local church.
