RCC is a pretty place but the main problem with that college is the parking: there are so many students that have enrolled in here and that caused a limited amount of parking, despite having multiple parking areas that are bigger than the college itself. Everything else is quite fantastic! Everyone is quite nice and very diverse; we have students that are from half-way around the world! There are also free food on thanksgiving day so that was really great, I got to bond with people that I've never met before. As of the professors, there are good professors and bad ones: some have bipolar characteristics and some have a caring characteristic and some are just completely terrific that just keeps you in engage in learning!

Riverside City College is a great community college! The campus is small and not as impacted as other schools in the area. My first year attending RCC I was fortunate enough to have some amazing professors. Professor Skinner in particular, has been my favorite thus far. She pushes her students to do their absolute best. She genuinely cares about the academic success of her students. However, not all professors are like Skinner. I have had a few professors that have made me question why they are teaching and why RCC hired them. One professor comes to mind specifically when questioning expertise; he shall remain anonymous. Professor Anon was absolute no help when it came to statistics. 95% of his class failed his tests and would pass with a 'D.' Aside from the hit or miss quality of professors, I would much rather take classes at RCC than Chaffey College.
Riverside Community college in amazing in so many ways. It offers so many career possibilities and a choose to complete classes online or at three different campus locations. The professors here really strive to make sure their students are successful and happy in their academics, this school even offers a tutor center to help struggling students in their class work. This school deserves a huge thumbs up!
