Rio Hondo College Reviews
Rio Hondo College is located in Whittier, California. The Campus is situated on a hill with beautiful scenery from all angles. The buildings reside on the top of the hill, with the athletics at the bottom of the hill. Rio Hondo has tons of majors and degree types to choose from, so there is definitely something for everyone. The school is a close-knit environment where the professors and students work together to give everyone a great experience. They're so many opportunities to succeed at Rio Hondo, and they filter into big universities. You absolutely cannot go wrong when choosing Rio Hondo for college!
I have been attending Rio Hondo for about 3 years now and I like how available the professor can be, but some will make themselves less available because they believe that they are working to hard. I believe that the counselors can do their job a lot better because as my 3rd year approached I visited 4 counselors and did not receive as much help as my 4th visit with a counselor. He informed me of why I was in certain classes and what classes I needed. He also helped me enroll in those classes. Counselors usually wanted to just get me out of their office with any classes on my schedule. I do like the classes and teachers at Rio Hondo, but they can significantly improve their faculty and staff. They do have great student awareness.
Rio Hondo College is my second home. As for any full-time student would say in any campus. Everyone here is friendly and the staffs are very helpful. My counselor that I meet with every semester is very understanding and wants her student achieve any goal that they have for themselves. I spend most of my time at the transfer center. Within the transfer center, there are college tours that are available to students. In my first semester, I took advantage of going to the tours every Friday. I have never visit a college campus before. Before I make my decision to transfer to a new school, I need to know what I like and don’t like. I stepped foot in different campuses and realize that I prefer to go to a school that is closer to the beach. Rio Hondo College has great resources from university fairs to transfer workshops.
