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.
River Parishes Community College is an affordable approach to education. This school allows people from all walks of life to reach their fullest potential. River Parishes Community College has recently renovated their campus/facility. This school would be a good choice for anyone wanting to attend a community based college, whit reasonable goals and expectations.
As someone who returned to school after 10+ years in the workforce, I can honestly say the decision to attend River Parishes Community College was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The professors and the support staff are all there to make sure you reach your goals. I am in my last semester there and I now have the confidence to move on to a four year university and know I will succeed.
