Rosedale Vets logo

Tech Vets

Tech Vets is Rosedale Tech’s Veterans Club. The organization is open to any students, faculty, and staff members that have served our country. Meetings occur every other month during lunch. Typically there is a guest speaker sharing information that will benefit Veterans.

When a meeting is scheduled, flyers are posted on classroom doors to alert the students and an announcement is made in the Monday morning announcements. A text message is also sent out to those signed up for the Rosedale text message service.


Rosedale Riveters

Once a female has made the decision to pursue a trade and enroll at Rosedale Tech, the support continues through their education.  As a way to connect female students throughout their time at Rosedale Tech, we organized a female club, known as the Rosedale Riveters.

The Rosedale Riveters meet regularly to connect with each other, discuss accomplishments and challenges they are facing, and hear from guest speakers that may include employers discussing career opportunities, or other business professionals that may cover topics, such as personal finances, retirement plans, interview preparation, and more.
