Spend some time over the summer thinking about what you expect from a roommate, things you will want to share and things you may want to keep for yourself, and what your vices may be that will be important to discuss.

You could go to Australia for the summer, Argentina for fall semester, spend spring semester in France, or take off to Spain for a year. There are limitless possibilities. For more information, contact email@example.com or 406.657.1107 RMC Exchange Programs Rocky Mountain College has exchange agreements with schools in Sweden, Finland, Japan, Northern Ireland, the U.K., and Jordan to study a variety of subjects, including language and culture.

Study Abroad Programs RMC works with students to find the right study abroad program for their interest. Students can participate in programs that are not exchanges. These are programs in which the student will still need to apply and they may use their financial aid, but instead of using their merit scholarship from RMC, they will apply for a scholarship directly from the program. Some of the programs students can use are: • International Studies Abroad - www.studiesabroad.com • Interstudy - www.interstudy.org • Globalinks Learning Abroad - www.globalinksabroad.com • Semester At Sea - www.semesteratsea.org • Go Abroad - www.goabroad.com • Study Abroad with AIFS - www.aifsabroad.com Faculty Led Programs Students can enroll in courses that have a component of travel, led by faculty for credit.
