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.

I have taken courses online before Covid and also due to Covid. I am partial to a traditional educational setting therefore I cannot say my online learning experience was preferred. However, the courses that I took online, both my choice and due to the pandemic, were amazing. The professors and online formatting made it extremely user friendly and easy to access homework, online tests/quizzes, and other helpful material. The professors encourage discussion boards and I feel they are crucial for fully understanding the material and course work.
My favorite aspect about Red Rocks Community College is its community. When you walk in you can feel the presence of the people who attend, and it welcomes you. I would like to see more activities that could unite the campus as a whole. For example, a barbecue or volleyball match (but I am not sure how we can do that now with the Covid). The staff employed at Red Rocks are tremendous. The professors genuinely care about their students, and the knowledge they are passing on. I have enjoyed Red Rocks very much for the past two years I have attended. I have met many wonderful and unique people that have brightened every step of my educational journey, and I am excited to see a future thanks to Red Rocks.
