Founded in 1878, Rocky Mountain College was the first institution of higher education in Montana. Drawing on strong traditions in both the liberal and practical arts, RMC provides students with the foundations for achieving personal and professional success: rational inquiry, creative expression, critical thinking, and the practical application of knowledge. RMC’s low student-faculty ratio and its high rate of financial support for students attract those seeking an intellectually rigorous yet personally supportive environment. RMC’s 1035 students (Fall 2015 enrollment) came from 41 states and 16 countries, with 56% of the population coming from Montana. Minority students comprise 9% of the student body, and 37% of RMC students are from the first generation in their families to attend college.
