Red Rocks is an amazing community for the student who may not know exactly what they want to go into for a major, and just want to acquire an associates. The advisors are knowledgable, understanding, and are always willing to just sit and talk you through a problem. Then comes the tutoring, its absolutely amazing! The tutors are amazing explaining subjects to you and helping you out. But as with any college, you have to put in the effort to go to the tutors if you're struggling.

The college experience is good, i always said that is isn't big enough to feel lost in the crowd, but just big enough as to always meet new people.

Red Rocks Community College has made several changes over the last four years. They have changed the layout of the building, added new amenities like a gym, and they have improved on their academics with better teachers. My overall experiences at Red Rocks is great!
I really like how easy it is to find the classes I need to take and how much help everyone on campus is. The staff is so nice, but I did have one bad experience with an advisor the first year I attended. All of my teachers have been excellent and I love that it doesn't cost a fortune to go here. I love the experience I have had so far!
