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!

The campus is nice and they have been doing a lot of construction in recent years to update buildings, classrooms, and add parking. The professors I have had have been excellent and really are invested in their student’s success. There are many majors to choose from and the school has several partnerships with local universities to aid in the transfer process. In addition to the majors, you can receive certifications in a variety of professions. I have enjoyed my time at Riverside City College and would recommend the school to others because of the counselors, professors, administration, and the overall professionalism of those who work with students.
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.
