Welcome TO RCIAA!

Welcome to the newly launched Rust College International Alumni Association’s official website. We are excited to be able to connect and engage alumni from around the nation and abroad as we transition into a new era for Rust College. This site is designed to help cultivate alumni relationships, provide access to online services, and serve as a platform to communicate with alumni, parents, family, and friends of Rust College regarding upcoming events, activities, fundraising efforts, and local club information.
