I've loved being a student at Red Rocks. The Arvada campus is beautiful, the staff is so helpful and informative, and the teachers care so much about their students and the success they have in school. I've had the opportunity to study amongst a really diverse student body and for that I am forever grateful!

Red Rocks Community College has been a great experience and really helped me get back into the swing of being an adult student. I am thankful for every staff member, professor and administrator as well as every student for making this campus friendly, safe and a way to get an amazing education at a killer price. I will be sad to transfer at the end of this semester!
I really liked the professors! They seem very interested in their students succeeding. They just got a new rec center/gym that is amazing, especially for a comm college. They are really progressing in things like student life, honors, and connecting with 4 year universities in the area.
