The experiences I had during my school year at Riverland Community College was amazing! Teachers and instructors really invested their times on student needs and wants. By that, they understood where each student were coming from. They are the letter that supported all students where students needed to be in the right step and direction. They showed an excellent demonstration and strive the best for students. Riverland Community college is a great place to learn, and it is also very safe. It has over 4,900 students. It's very divers for its size. Changes that I would like to see in Riverland are the carer program and activity clubs. I would like to see more career program in the future because it would attract more students. Same thing with the club. It will open up more opportunities for everyone that wanted to come to Riverland. Overall, Riverland Community College is a great school!

Overall, Riverland has given graduating students an excellent opportunity to expand and their knowledge right within graduation, and within reasonable price range. Riverland community college is the perfect first steps on receiving your AA. Not to mention that some of your classes do not require having to purchase a book. However, due to the location of Riverland being in the Midwest in a small town and how the curriculum only glides over what you are learning without going in depth, it appears that each pro and con balance each other out, giving Riverland Community college a total of three stars.
I absolutely love the culture at Riverland Community College. All of the staff have the word "success" in mind with every interaction they have with students. You'll never find a full moment if you're attending school on campus. There's always plenty of events going on in the course of your enrollment. There are a few things that I wish could be better, though. I wish there was a more well rounded mental health support system because as of right now, there isn't one. As a student, it's also important to see transparency from administration, and there isn't a lot. Otherwise, I can't complain about any of the teachers that instruct at Riverland.
