I like Rio Hondo College, but the campus is small and needs to be expanded. The food options are very limited. There has to be more campus activities for night students. The programs such as EOPS and Trio Program are great! There is very optimistic and loving people in the transfer center that motivate you encourage you to expand all of your options!

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'm currently a Nursing student at Rio Hondo. The Nursing Professors and nursing faculty there are excellent. They are very professional, organized, and caring for their students. What I love the most is that they treat everyone with the same interest, in other words, everybody is important. I have been a student at other colleges where I've experienced racism, and Rio Hondo is nothing like that for which I'm very grateful. The food in the cafeteria is great. It's varied, affordable, and they have Starbucks coffee. The downside of the school, at least for me, is that they don't have any programs that help Nursing students. The nursing career is a long one. By the time the student makes it to Nursing program, he/she is already out of financial aid and so it's very hard to survive without any help. I think they should have more programs that help and support the nursing students.
