Reading Area Community College Reviews
People always have negative comments in regards to community colleges, and more importantly RACC. Our city is full of negativity, and I understand where people come from when they want to show that they're better than what others think, but attending a community college is one of the smartest choices anyone could ever make. A lot of people came up to me and told me that they've heard how difficult the classes are in RACC compared to other colleges in the city, and I've never would've considered it that way, but I've heard it so many times that it must be true. Just because you attend a community college it does not mean you will get poor results from it as a student. You are saving so much money when you attend here. People all over campus are extremely helpful IF YOU ASK FOR HELP! Many teachers are caring, and understanding about your situation if you speak to them and tell them why you couldn't hand in an assignment or will be missing a test. I'm about to graduate this upcoming year, and I have nothing negative to say about RACC. You will not regret attending this college, I assure you. The price you're paying or will be paying is worth it. Don't let the fact that it's a community college, and people have negative opinions about community colleges change you from coming here.
My first semester at Reading Area Community College has been good because I have done very well academically, my lowest grade being a B+. I think the resources they offer to help their students are plentiful and a lot of students really take advantage of them. The one thing I would like to see change is the leniency of late items. Many instructors only deduct minor points for late items, and I think at this point in an education career, you should be responsible deadlines and instructors should not encourage the behavior by accepting late work.
RACC is small, but the teachers really care about the students and what they are teaching. Classes usually have between 20 and 30 students, and teachers are always willing to help their students succeed. One of the most unique things about RACC is the RACCy Olympics which raises money for charity. Throughout the year, students form teams and compete to raise the most money, and in the spring they face off to earn points to declare a "winner". This past year, the program raised over $17,000 for Habitat For Humanity.
