Renton Technical College has a variety of two-year programs and a very diverse population of students. Instructors are very experienced and educated in their field and offer full support and encouragement. The campus is safe, I have been attending Renton Technical College for two years and have never experienced an unsafe situation. Drills are performed regularly to ensure that students and staff know what to do in the event of a real situation. The campus was recently renovated and look nice and neat, but if you arrive around 10 AM in the morning, it is difficult to find a parking space. The food in the cafeteria is prepared by the culinary students, it’s inexpensive and tastes great!

Renton Technical College is great for it's small campus and class sizes. The staff make it easy to receive all the help you may need to thrive in whatever your plans may be. There are more than enough resources for everyone- the library is never packed, they offer space like the Learning Resource Center, Scholarship and other funding staff, peer-to-peer help, advisers and more. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable.

What I enjoy the most is that each program is designed for you to learn about the field of study. There is very little run around in their courses. What you enroll in is what you will focus on and there is space for you to do more learning in out-of-class clubs. The two things that I would change is the parking; the parking lot is usually full and street parking is hard to come by at certain hours of the morning.

Overall, Renton Technical is great for anyone who has an interest in any of the programs offered and for those who may not be sure.
I have been attending RTC for about 4 years now and couldn't be happier with my choice in schools. My goal when I began attending RTC was to finish my course pre-requisites to get into an accredited ADN program, and I did just that, with the help of the professors and advisors at this school. I finished my AAS degree prior to gaining admission into the ADN program, or RN program, and couldn't be happier to attend this school! The professors are helpful and knowledgeable with many years of clinical experience.
