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!

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.
Renton Technical College is a very pleasant place to go to school. It seems to have a staff that encourage success. The atmosphere is very diverse and seems that all are welcome. They have a variety of programs & even culinary. I personally enjoy the wonderful scent of the bakery every morning. And my classmates seem to love the fresh made donuts. But besides the bakery & the pleasant friendly staff, we also enjoy a wide variety of programs in the medical field & even automotive. Overall, I believe the atmosphere is build for all students to be successful, whether young or old.
