    Riverside is an amazing college if you re pursuing the medical field. They offer an extraordinary amount of programs there like LPN, RN, X-ray tech, and physical therapy. I would however like to see them offer loans for school. They aren't eligible for student loans and this could help a lot of students not only pay for college, but build their credit as well.
