My experience with Riverside City College is nothing more than a great privilege and amazing growth as an individual, as well as my abilities and my studies. The professors possess loads of amount of knowledge, and experience of their subject. They just know what to have you work on to better yourself and progress in you subject of study. I'm a music major, and it's been nothing, but joy and growth to study with these professional instructors in their profession. The food is great! Lots of choices to eat whether to eat delicious french fries and chicken tenders, to nice health veggie sandwiches, to many to note out. Student life is amazing, always meeting new people every day from different backgrounds and coming from different parts of the world. Lots to do as well as go to music concerts, theater shows, sports games, etc. And the campus is just a couple blocks away from the local scene of Downtown Riverside. So easy and convenient to commute!
Review Riverside City College
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.
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.
