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.
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!
