I had an amazing experience at RCC. The professors are really nice and helpful; they genuinely care about their students! Not only are the professor great, but so are the students. I have made many sweet friends on campus. The counselors made it possible for me to transfer within 2 years, which was my goal. I’m now graduating with an AA and I will be transferring to a 4-year this Fall. I’m so glad that I chose RCC because I had a great experience and saved a lot of money. There’s a lot of opportunities for scholarships and financial help available.

My first ever semester at Riverside City College was surprisingly very great. I began attending Fall of 2019 with much anxiety because I wasn't sure what college would truly be like. But now that I've taken a total of 10 classes during 3 semesters, I can honestly say Im proud that I made the decision to start my college education here. I understand everyone's experiences differ, but coming from a girl who struggles with social anxiety, I've been able to successfully complete a variety of classes. All with different professors who I've all enjoyed. And they range from History, English, Film, Communications, and Politics. Whatever misconception I had on community colleges has completely drifted. Going to classes here has definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone. Also, Im very impressed on how much attention and dedication the staff put into the students. They provide free help on any subject in the MLK building, where you can go in, hang out, and receive help from the student tutors.
Getting anything done with the administration is difficult. They need to streamline the financial aid process and not have it cause anxiety and stress when you are already stressed about your classes. The staff in the financial aid department can absolutely go through a sensitivity class and could benefit from further training.

The teachers are overall pretty good. There are a few that should retire and a couple that need to get with the times and learn to use the online programs properly, especially considering the times we currently live in with COVID-19.
