Rio Hondo College has provided me with so many reasources in order to fufil my educational needs. The professors really do care about each individual students education & want us to move foward carrer-wise. While there has been some professors who weren't the best, I can say 90% of my professors here at Rio Hondo were amazing. With dedication, I can gladly say that I will graduate & tranfer from Rio in spring of 2020! It took me the expected two years in order to graduate & transfer even though community colleges tend to get a bad representation of having students enrolled for 3 plus years. If you are truly dedicated to your school & success here at Rio Hondo, I can promise you'll transfer easily and fast.

The campus is a breath of fresh air! Rio Hondo College is my first college and it does not disappoint. For starters, the staff and Professors are on par with the highest degree of professionalism. Each department is dedicated to helping students achieve their potential by listening and implementing the knowledge the student lacks. Personally I like the campus because it is placed on top of a hill surrounded by nature.
I’m going on my 4th year at Rio Hondo and I’m graduating in May 2019. So I like to think I know quite a bit about the campus. I went through some tough times with my school work and dropped off a bit with my school work, but The people at Rio truly helped me stay on track. Visiting the counselors to help me discover what the right path is for me was all I needed. The transfer center definitely helped me with my transferring process for the fall. They offer so much for every single person who walks through their doors and I highly recommend this school!
