If you're the type of individual to look down on an institution simply because of the fact that it's a community college, please consider thinking twice. RCC is host to numerous incredibly talented professors, the majority of whom have attained doctorates in their respective fields. It also participates in TAG , and has a promise program that covers most, if not all of your fees should you meet the requirements. Go apply!
Parking is killer. Try to arrive at least two hours before your class starts if you're commuting by car.
I think the pricing was very affordable and if you choose the right professors and can join as make programs such as EOPS, TRiO, Disabled Resource Center (you can join even if you have something like documented anxiety) which can give you extensions in your classes and EOPS can give you book vouchers if you are eligible for the program. These programs definitely made the experience at RCC a great one!
The only thing I can think of is that you should always ask for help! When you ask for help it won’t hurt and it can only help you and your future!
I was really nervous about beginning my college experience, but the teachers and counselors made it a great experience. It is nice to have teachers that genuinely care for you and your success and it is evident in many on the campus! I recommend RCC for anyone who wants to go to community college first and transfer out or simply to receive a certificate or their associate's degree.
I feel like counselors give you different sorts of information and it may be wrong. There were a lot of things I had to figure out on my own.
Very good opportunities at a portion of the cost.
Some bad professors.
The staff is ready to help, and the campus is clean and not too spread out. Classes are not a war zone to get into
Use your resources they do outreach but it’s easy to miss out on great opportunities.
I liked that there were a lot of diverse people. From different places and different ages. It was nice to get to know a wide range of different people.
I did not like the professors. A lot of them have tenured so they do not care and are not good at teaching and answering questions.
