I am currently enrolled in Automotive Technologies. The instructors are great! They're excellent in classroom lecture and in the lab with hands-on training. I've learned a great deal and they have prepared me to transfer to a University.
Rend Lake college has changed my life for the better. RLC is student oriented and takes their time to understand the needs and wants of everyone who walks into their admissions office. I feel that for a small community college, Rend Lake College is at the forefront of education in our area.
