So far I have been at Richland CC for a semester, and yet I already feel comfortable there! What makes this school so great and unique would be the cultural diversity and friendly environment. Everyone I have met so that enrolls there are extremely nice and help you out! The professors are also understanding and are very knowledgeable in their field of study. I would choose it over and over again if I could. In fact, I really wish it was a university so that I can stay there longer! It is also probably the only campus that has separate buildings for classes. Its just so beautiful and green at school! I especially enjoy Sabine hall because of its café and its just a great place to hangout in general. I would highly recommend this school to anyone because it has great student resources and financial aid resources!
Review Richland Community College
Richland Community College has been an excellent experience for me. It is the one thing I like about living in Decatur. The people who work there are very helpful. The one thing I would like to change about Richland Community College is having a Music department, especially for those who are majoring in music.
Whether it is playing an instrument, going into production, or composing music. There should be a department like that.
At first, I was kind of frustrated since I was a first time student and had to register for classes at Richland college. The computers kept messing up and I was getting worried the classes I picked were going to be full since it fit my schedule perfectly with work. It turned out to be full by the time the computers started working again, but with the wide range of professors and time I got an even more perfect schedule than the one I had planned before! So it was all perfect.
