Community College of Rhode Island Reviews
Attending CCRI was the best academic choice I made. There’s a stigma that community college is worse than universities, but there are way more pros than cons. First, the amazing professors at CCRI are the same professors who teach at the big and private universities, so your getting the same education as everyone else. Second, small campuses are easy to navigate and you don’t have to walk to different classes outside in the cold/rain. Student life is more diverse than other campuses and events are always being held in the cafeteria such as clubs, fairs or advisors attending you if you have any academic questions. Also the best reasoning is because the RI Promise and FASFA make the two first years free! There are many academic rewards and opportunities it’s great to build up a good transcript for your transferring 4 year. It’s opportunity many wish to have, so take advantage to it. Thanks to CCRI, now I’m transferring for a 4 year uni with less debt and more knowledge!
CCRI is a great option to begin college if you are a RI resident. If you have the RI promise guarantee, definitely go here. I like many of the professors and advisors at CCRI. The classes were ok, maybe a bit more challenging than high school but relatively easy. Go to college here for free, get good grades here and transfer somewhere with scholarships!
It is a very intuitive school. I especially enjoy the RI Promise Scholarship provided by the state. It allows gaining experience with College with no cost for two years, with an added bonus of guaranteed acceptance to URI or RIC at a discounted tuition cost! Very happy to see Rhode Island offer such a great program!
