I'm currently a running start student, so being in a college level class is new to me. Although I was very nervous on my first day, most staffs and classmates were very nice. RTC offers a lot of online classes which I was skeptical about taking because I thought it would be hard without having a professor teaching you in person, yet the experience was quite easy! The professors made everything easy to understand and they always reply to my messages within 24 hours. The classroom size is small, so I was able to have a more one-on-one relationship with my professor. Overall, I wouldn't choose this school again only because they don't offer a lot of science classes.
I love online classes! RTC has this online instruction website were you have classes and view grades call "Canvus." It's very easy to use and a great way to contact your professors. The workload is fair, and you have do the assignment anytime you want, just make sure it's before the due date. Online classes is great for me because I like to get my work done a few days ahead and save time. The professors and students are all very engaging and it's fun having class discussions every week.
I'm in the running start program and if anyone thought that running start student get any special treatment.. We do not. It's nice is be around a more mature environment where staffs and other classmates look at you like a college student. The amount of workload in my opinion is a lot, but that's because I was the top grades. You have to work for what you want right? Doing this program allows me to take on more challenging classes and discover what I'd like to be one day. Overall, RTC's running start program has been growing and I'm glad to see other highschoolers challenge themselves. The running start advisor, Debbie Rundle, has helped me a lot throughout my first year in college.
