Ridgewater is an excellent 2 year technical college. By having the chance to do PSEO as a highschool student, Ridgewater has been very helpful with aid for my future. The staff and administration at Ridgewater is very helpful and informative when you need help.
Review Ridgewater College
I am ok with the online classes, but I would definitely prefer classroom classes over them, I do believe that some of the teachers could do better because this last semester one of my online teachers had over a month of where we had nothing for that class. But at the same time, other teachers were right on top of everything.
I have had a wonderful experience at Ridgewater. The teachers and staff members are very caring individuals. Ridgewater is great because of the environment, small class sizes, the price, and many other reasons. I would choose this school again 100%.
