River Parishes Community College Reviews
I loved the professors at the school and manly of the classes I got to take! There were great classes taught by people who were very enthusiastic about the subject matters they covered. I always felt like my teachers took notice of me and cared about me. They made themselves available to students, always offering us time to see them during their office hours. The students there are also very nice. I become friends with many of my classmates after just one semester. They understand the situation many students are in, and they are helpful while also holding us accountable, because they know what we are capable off and encourage us to try harder and harder.
My experiences at RPCC have been both wonderful and not so wonderful. The professors that work at the school that I have had are just absolutely amazing. Their love for teaching is evident, and the care they show students goes above and beyond standards. However, the same cannot be said for the other staff and faculty members. Almost every staff member I have encountered seemed to really hate his job, and showed little respect for the work being done. Other than the other faculty members of the school, it is a really great starting off (or finishing up) college.
I love it at River Parish Community College! The staff is friendly and really helpful. The professors make class simple. Tuition is AMAZING! I’m currently taking online classes and I cannot complain! Ever since I started attending River Parish my college experience has been breezy!
