Rocker Ready

Rocker Ready is the orientation program for first year and transfer students that helps prepare you for the challenges you will face during your academic career here at SD Mines. All new students will need to attend an orientation prior to the start of the semester. We have several orientation programs to meet the needs of a diverse group of students that joins Mines each semester. (We even have orientation sessions for parents.)
