Alumni

As an RLC graduate, you know the unique culture and close connections that unite the alumni of our school. You’ve experienced the magic of waking up in the forest with your classmates, of debating and collaborating in a classroom with an inspiring faculty member, performing on the field, playing in a jam band or sitting quietly by the lake. Whatever year you attended RLC, we seem to all agree - Rosseau Lake College is the opportunity of a lifetime, for a lifetime!

The good news is, your relationship with Rosseau Lake College never ends. As an alumnus, you automatically become part of a global network of over 1500 awesome people who experienced the charm of our campus the same way you did.

As a forever member of the RLC family, you are always welcome on campus! Please stay connected to us and your memories, share your new adventures, offer your insight, and honour your experience!

Here are some of the many ways to stay connected: 

Decade Reunions

Decade Reunions help bring RLC friends and classmates together each year. A cocktail party, dinner, and evening entertainment are all highlights of this signature event. The first decade reunion in 2019 celebrated RLC in the 70’s. The 80’s event, delayed because of COVID-19, will be held in Spring ’22 followed by the 90’s, 2000’s, 2010’s, 2020’s, repeat!

Traditional RLC Activities & Events

Each year Rosseau Lake College welcomes back hundreds of alumni to campus for fun and exciting traditional alumni events that happen throughout the year.
