The education portion of the college is pretty standard. Some of the teachers I had were horrible and shouldn't be teaching, but for the most part the professors were excellent. The school itself as a building could use some work. The parking lots are no where near large enough, the 300 teachers have as much parking as the 3,000 students. They don't have dorms, but they do have "student housing". It's essentially apartment buildings where you have a 50/50 chance of being shot or being housed with a stoner. Thankfully I live off campus and don't have to deal with that. They don't have an actual cafeteria with a meal plan, but they have a little café where you can pay each time. Overall I think it was a good enough school and I would go here again.

At RCTC there are some amazing teachers who have made my online class experience personal! This can be a hard thing to do since in an online class you can go the whole semester without actually seeing your professor but some of those teachers have got it down! At the end of each semester you are asked to fill out a servery and they seem to be acting on what they discover from student responses. The homework load for online classes tend to be a little less then on campus courses. This can be a good thing, allowing me to still take classes with my busy schedule. However, I feel it is harder to learn as much with the lowered requirements.
I do my college courses completely online, the instructor's are super friendly, very helpful and easy to communicate with. I have been at RCTC since the summer of 2018 and I love it. I get good grades and it seems more like one on one learning. If I need any help or need extra time to do any assignments the instructor's are very workable. They are very strict on getting assignments done on time, but if you have a situation that is excusable they will work with you. Doing it online sometimes seems harder than actually going to the college, I know because I did have to attend two classes before I could start my online program and even though I can pick my own hours, my family and friends don't take it seriously or they assume I have all the free time in the world. I get interrupted very often. They do not understand that I am a full time student and I can't just hang out or do things as much because I am supposed to be doing school work at least 8 hours a day plus homework/study time.
