Rocky Rewards

Maximize your stay in Canada!

The Rocky Rewards program encourages international students to take their study-abroad experience to the next level.  Students earn points for participating in school clubs and sports, volunteering at school and in their communities, participating in community events, and getting good work habit grades on their report cards.  Students who earn enough points are rewarded with a free trip to Vancouver at the end of the school year!   

The goal of the program is to enhance the amazing Canadian cultural, recreational, and scholastic experience already offered  by RMISP by creating incentives for international students to maximize provided opportunities and seek out additional ones to engage and challenge themselves.  We want each and every RMISP student to make the most of their stay in Canada and reach their potential during their once-in-a-lifetime study abroad experience.

Community Activities and Events

Be active and adventurous!  RMISP's host communities are amazing places to live.  Find out why by participating in community activities, events, and clubs.  Earn points for everything from attending a concert or watching a hockey game to competing in a triathlon or joining a karate class.  


Volunteering

Make time to make a difference!  Earn points by volunteering at your school and in your community.  You will probably find that you'll get more than points from the experience.  Past RMISP students have volunteered at local food banks, in elementary school classrooms, as coaches of youth sports, in senior's homes, at local festivals, at tournaments -- there are too many rewarding opportunities to list!

Work Habits

In RMISP, attitude and effort matter!  Do your best in your classes and you will earn points for the Work Habit grades you get on your report mid-term and final report cards.  Excellent (E) and Good (G) grades for work habits are worth five points each to a maximum of 20 points per report card.    


School Clubs and Sports

Get active, get involved!  Join a school club or team to earn points and experience everything your on-campus experience has to offer.  Clubs and teams are a great way to meet new people, try new things, and see new places.

Vancouver Trip

What a way to end the year!  The Rocky Rewards trip to Vancouver includes three full days exploring BC's biggest city.  The 2015 trip itinerary included a tour of the University of British Columbia, a trip to Kitsilano Beach, shopping at Metrotown Mall, a guided tour of downtown Vancouver, the FlyOver Canada Imax experience, Granville Island, Stanley Park, the Capilano Suspension Bridge, and Grouse Mountain followed by a celebration dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant in Gastown.
