What I love about Richland Community College is that they are very diverse, the professors are very helpful, and most of all how small the classes are. Richland are full of students all race. Everyone around campus are extremely kind and full of energy. The professors that I've had, while being on campus are very affectionate. They care about my grade. The reason why I feel that college is easier for me, is because of how small the classes are. This gives me an opportunity to focus on my professor and have a chance to get one on one time to expand my learning in case I have questions. Working in a smaller group is also less distracting. Most Importantly, Richland Community College is a great school. I've learned new skills that I didn't know I was capable of. I enjoy spending time on this campus. The environment carries positive energy. This school has such a great impact on me

So far my experience at Richland Community College has been very good. A majority of the professors that I have had are always willing to help a student if they need it. My counselor at Richland has also been very helpful during my time there. He has been amazing at helping me with classes, decided what I want to do in the future, and with helping me in my transfer progress to my new school next semester. Richland also has many different opportunities for students around campus. It is a great place to attend, learn, and further one's education
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!
