So far my overall experience at Riverside City College has been great! I love the campus, I enjoy walking around and soaking in the rich history that this school has to offer. Classes for the most part are easy to get in. I did have some difficulty getting a biology class though. The staff are great and are passionate about their work and do want their students to succeed. I know the school host a wide range of services for the students such as work shops, guest speakers, tutoring and more. I've encountered many students, some fresh out of high school and some it's been a decade or more since they last open a textbook. However their motivation to succeed and get their associates degree or transfer to a four-year college is pretty inspiring. I myself am looking forward to transferring over to a four-year college I'm putting my experience at Riverside City College to good use.
Review Riverside City College
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.
