RRCC provided good academics and transition between Highh school into a University as it wa challenging but not intemidating. There was diversity and some excellent professors and It was safe and accommodating to working with schedules. There were ,outlying commuters there so not much social interaction. Wish there could have been more activities to bind students together. Overall, it was a good experience I would recommend to others!
Review Red Rocks Community College
This Community College offers so many opportunities for its students, but my favorite aspect of this school is the teachers. They are always willing to help and make sure that you're getting the most out of your education which means a lot to students. They have a very diverse campus and offer a lot of out of school activities for student to get engaged. It’s not only enough to have great teachers but also a friendly campus. The campus includes a game room for any in-between class time and there’s always free popcorn in the den! Not to mention plentiful amounts of chairs and couches around for a spot to rest between classes of the occasional nap.
The professors are so knowledgeable in their fields, which is inspiring to say the least, and allow themselves to make time for the students when teaching so that the learning environment is full of students participating and understanding the course load. The classes are not too large and the students are very open-minded; making class discussions interesting and fun!
