Student Ambassador Program

Student Ambassadors pose for a moment during Spring Fling 2014

College is only about studying, books and tests, right? WRONG.  School is also to help give you new experiences and let you grow and lead. That’s the aim of our Student Ambassador Program at RCC. As a Student Ambassador, students can:

  • Plan our Fall Bash and Spring Fling events
  • Work together to create new events
  • Conduct outreach programs for students
  • And much more!

Ambassadors are made up of 20 students, 10 from Glenns and 10 from Warsaw, who meet weekly as a group the director of student activities. For more information about becoming an ambassador, please contact David Keel Dean of Student Development.

Fall Bash and Spring Fling

RCC Student Ambassadors

Plan to have a good time at our Fall Bash and Spring Fling

You might not know this, but RCC has been “bashing” for 25 years. Held in mid-October, our Fall Bash includes:

  • A free cookout lunch
  • A talent show featuring your fellow students
  • Games and activities
  • The faculty/staff versus students volleyball game
  • And more!

April’s Spring Fling also features fun and sun on the lawn, but representatives from our GAA partners will be on hand to chat about transfer options. Glenns and Warsaw each host a Spring Fling and Fall Bash each year.

Sports at RCC

Rev. Keith Parham presents on his personal meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

One of the great things about being a Rappahannock student is learning outside of the classroom. You’ll see that our invited speakers and presenters are from varied backgrounds and have a broad range of expertise. Here are some from Spring 2014:

Students on campus should keep an eye on their RCC e-mail for these announcements, or check the RCC Events page for a great look at what is upcoming..



RCC students at the VCCS Leadership Conference in 2010

The annual VCCS Leadership Conference is held at different scenic locations throughout the state. The conference gives student leaders from across the 23 college Virginia Community College System a chance to learn from each other and share new ideas.

Students who are selected to attend are able to experience this event at no cost. The Fall 2014 VCCS Leadership Conference was held from November 14-16 at the Wyndham Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel.

For more information about attending next year, please contact David Keel Dean of Student Development.



Members of Phi Theta Kappa from Commencement 2008

The Phi Theta Kappa with chapters on the both campuses recognizes and encourages scholarship among two-year college students.

To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals, for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.

The PTK contact at Rappahannock Community College is Matt Brent, Assistant Professor of History.



Competitors during the Spring 2014 Tournament

Sound too good to be true? It is an actual tournament for interested RCC students. You can be that this is the real-deal!

The RCC Video Game Tournament started in 2014, and proved to be quite popular! A variety of games challenged our students — from Madden to the classic first-person games — our competitors faced them all.

For more information about attending or upcoming events, please contact David Keel Dean of Student Development.



Making the most of your college experience.

Are you ready to take full advantage of your time as a student here at RCC? Our faculty and staff regularly learn of opportunities for students who would like to get some “on the job training” with a company or firm.

You can learn more about these great situations and opportunities by visiting our Student Opportunities page, where we’ll post the most recent and relevant announcements.


Halloween Costume Contest

Costume Contest

A magician and Joe Dirt were among the 2014 contest entries.

Starting in Fall 2013, a Halloween costume has been hosted by Student Activities team here at RCC. Students were challenged to wear a costume to campus and submit photos of themselves in costume to the RCC Facebook page.

RCC students, faculty, staff, and community members who follow the Facebook feed chose the winner — that winner won a gift card based on the number of “likes” per photo.

For more information on the upcoming 2015 contest, please contact David Keel, Dean of Student Development.
