WHAT IS RAM RUSH?
Ram Rush is the official University of Mobile New Student Orientation. It is organized by the University of Mobile’s Student Life Department and is full of concerts, free food, give-aways, games, new friends, orientation information, and tons of fun!
Check out this video of Ram Rush 2019!
Every new student is assigned a Ram Fam Group (RFG) upon registration. Your group assignment is based on your Freshman Seminar class section number. Groups range in size from 15-20 students. Each RFG has two active and engaged UM student leaders to guide you through your first week at UM, help you meet other students, and get involved. They will fill you in on all the details of each event, what to wear, and where to be, using your RFG Facebook Group that you will be invited to in a few short weeks.
Ram Rush will begin at move-in and continues through the first week of classes. Events are not mandatory except for orientation on Saturday, however participation is highly encouraged, as Ram Rush is one of your best ways to get connected to fellow students and get involved in Student Life. Dress is casual at all events and all event meals are free.
