Richland College is probably the best community college to go to. I actually transferred to Richland from another college and the difference is impeccable. The campus is absolutely gorgeous and not overwhelmingly big. The professors I've had the pleasure of learning with genuinely care about their students. I appreciate the faculty and how there's small events that bring all students together. From giving out free hot chocolate on freezing days, concert events, and to bringing college fairs, it's truly a great experience all over. I'm glad I transferred!

Richland College has a large number of clubs, that you will fit in. Also the student life is very helpful. Beautiful campus that is well laid out. Main building for admissions and getting started is very organized. All areas are clearly labeled and keeps you from getting lost. Great place to start off very affordable and lots of greats staff to help. The diversity here is wonderful and a real pleasure to be around! Learning so many cultures makes you see how big our world really is! Definitely recommend this school!
Richland community college is a great school! The teachers are nice and helpful, they helped made my time at Richland quick and easy! Also of course there are many different classes but the material is easy to follow and the teachers' learning style is always fun to follow. I came straight to community college after I graduated high school in 2017 and knew this was the best community college for me to attend. I am currently about to start my second year in hopes to finishing my basics to I can transfer to a university and finishing pursing my education in Nursing. Richland has been good to me and I am excited to start again this fall!
