Social events, introducing you to life on an American campus and to the Denver area, are an important part of the Red Rocks program. Friendships quickly develop as students participate in different activities together. RRCC students may also participate in the International Student Expo during the fall semester, and they are encouraged to bring their national costumes to wear and other traditional items to represent their cultures during this special event.
The International Club
The International Student Club is one of the most active student groups on campus, providing an activity for students every month. The international students at Red Rocks enjoy outings, including skiing, bowling, the zoo, restaurants and much more! There is something for everyone. You help us decide what to do, and then we’ll let you know the details about activities by e-mail and posters around campus.
There are many different clubs and organizations on campus. Join a club and meet others who share your interests. You can also take a break from your classes and enjoy your free time in a variety of games and campus activities.

Life in Colorado
Red Rocks Community College is located in the suburban foothills of Lakewood, Colorado, between the exciting capital city of Denver and the famous Rocky Mountains. Students have the best of both worlds. After a week of studying, they can use weekends to explore the city's night life or retreat to the nearby forests and mountain streams of nature. They are less than one hour from the heart of Ski Country, USA and fifteen minutes from the nightclubs, shopping, and major sports (soccer, baseball, football, basketball, hockey) of downtown Denver. Fine restaurants, museums, and art galleries abound in the local suburbs of Lakewood, Arvada, Wheat Ridge and Golden. Only ten minutes from the campus is the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater, where over 50 major rock, pop, and classical music concerts are performed each summer.
