Rock Creek will host an open house called Mission Possible for new students, returning students and the general public on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., 17705 N.W. Springville Road. The event will provide an opportunity for new and returning students to purchase their books, register for classes, contact the business office, seek academic advising, receive guidance from Financial Aid, tour the campus, and show friends and family the Rock Creek Campus.
