I don't have much to complain about. The class availability always seems to work out and with certain classes they add more seats to accommodate the demand. I like the smaller campus and the class sizes. I don't feel like a number in a class which is nice.
I like how the staff is super reliable and friendly towards everyone and are willing to help. No isn't a stupid question to ask because they are here to help. I've had very pleasant experiences being a student, but sadly I will be transferring out into another university. I will miss the staff and the good food they serve. One bad thing I'd like to say: change the guidance counselors. They can't do anything except complain how terrible you are in your classes and make you feel bad about every little thing you do.
RCTC is a good place to get a jumpstart on your education. In my experience, staff has been very helpful and encouraging and the school is up to date technology wise and provides students with the tools needed to succeed.
Class options are sometimes limited, and parking is hard to come by.

My experience with RCTC was better than I expected. The teachers want to help you out as much as possible. The faculty are really friendly.
This college has great professors and tutors! Friendly staff and very good resources. Tutors to help you in every class or subject.
I am doing full time PSEO at the college currently, the professors are all really great and very helpful. though the atmosphere is not very exciting and there isnt much living around the college is a very enjoyable place to be. I like the diversity shown through the school.
They are horrible when it comes to customer service. I have been calling them for over a month and not once have they answered the phone. They say their business office is from 8-4pm but they don't answer. I don't understand why they have a phone number for if they aren't going to answer. So I transferred, and their nursing program isn't diverse at all. you would be on the waiting list for two years and they make you take so much unnecessary classes for the "major" which is just another way to steal your money. Go spend your money somewhere else. Wouldn't recommend it on my worst enemy.
I really liked their attentiveness. The staff with RCTC admissions and the counseling departments were fantastic in attending my needs.
Great teachers and students. RCTC offers a diverse and cultural learning environment which drives the students to succeed.
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.
They offer so many different activities and opportunities. I believe the teachers at RCTC help you think outside the box, which helps you expand your thought processes. The fact that they offer on campus and off campus opportunities and the teachers always try to make themselves available to their students. This has been a great experience for me so far in my college life.
Courses are challenging but most instructors are great. It is not the place to go if you are looking for a party environment or on-campus housing. Many students are non-traditional / returning to school / changing careers, etc.
I like the area that RCTC is in! Rochester is a very unique and growing city! The people are great. Also with me being in the Nursing program i couldn't be in a better town for future employment!
I like the diversity of the students and most of my professors have been very hands on with teaching.
Very good, friendly classmates , safe campus and accessible instructors whiling to help , plus a bunch of other resources like libraries, tutoring and study groups.
I am currently thinking about going to school at RCTC and the experience at my visit was amazing and really helped me decide what colleges I should look at and what shouldn't be visited.
Very good college to complete general education requirements at a relatively affordable cost. This school helped me avoid student loans while I was going there. There are also a lot of online options for classes which helped me be able to work while attending this school.

I have been to the campus for music competitions and I am attending the college full time for my senior year. I the campus is located near down town but is also a short drive from the local nature center.
Great college to attend. A very cultural community with many great resources to it. Also partnered with Augsburg College and Winona State the education background is great. Along with great teachers and low tuition rate's this is an amazing college to attend.
I just transferred to RCTC and am so far enjoying the experience from there. I like the professors I have.
