The instructors I had at RACC were incredibly helpful, engaging, and fun! I am currently studying Mechatronics Engineering Technology, and the program is quite interesting. I also study along side professionals who are being sent to RACC by their companies. This gives me more exposure to the industry!

The school overall is okay, there’s security to keep students safe. There’s parking for students. River area to walk for relaxation. Computer lab and library is available for students, there’s also a gym. The theater to nearby as well and college discount for students. Professors are good, they show they care about you. If they see you doing poor, they have free tutoring for students to do better in classes as well.
I really enjoyed my experience at RACC! The entire staff is so friendly and so very helpful! The classes are not too hard and the professors help you. Also, the students are nice and the environment is a safe study place!
