My overall experience at school so far has been great! I love going to college even though it is difficult at times. After completing classes I feel very accomplished and ready to take on a new class. So far every professor I've had has been both helpful and passionate about the subjects they teach. I feel that they have definitely contributed to my success in their classes. My school is unique because, everyone want you to succeed. Success opportunities are found all around campus such as, workshops, free tutoring, and helpful staff that is ready to always answer questions. In addition, my school provides many great programs such as nursing which I am working to be apart of one day. If I could do it all over when choosing colleges, I would still choose Riverside City College, because attending this school has taught me so many things and really opened my eyes to a world of education that is not far from my grasp. So far, I have learned so many things and can not wait for what the future holds in my college career.
The college is easy to get into (considering its a community college). A lot of people say its hard to get classes, which can be true, but if you're waitlisted you have to work for the class - and a lot of students don't. Most of the proffessors are great. They really care about their work and being efficient. The only complaints I have with the school overall is that the school needs some remodeling. We just got a new student services/offices building which is fantastic! But now the classrooms need some touching up. As far as school pride - the people on the student government really care about what they're doing and the school, but the students could care less. We just want to get in, and get out. My favorite experiences are in my theatre classes - considering its my major. I would still choose this school over again because in the long run it saves you tons of money.
For being a community college, RCC is probably one of the best colleges in CA. Out of about 25 professors that I have had, only 2 have made my experience in the classroom dreadful. The rest have offered courses that I have genuinely enjoyed and learned a lot from. Although it would be considered a commuter school, the school hosts plenty of activities, workshops, speakers, etc. But of course you have to be aware of these events and activities. Most students at RCC are motivated to complete their educational goals, whether it be getting their AA or transferring to a 4-year university. The library is usually packed during the last few weeks of each semester as most students prepare for finals.
