My experience at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College has been a road of ups and downs, but mostly ups! Although there have been times of difficulty, I've always loved how each and every professor has emphasized the importance of tutoring and one-on-one help during their office hours. Not once have I felt neglected by any teacher in this school. The activities that go on throughout the year are extremely fun, and the facilities are truly exceptional. In all honesty, there is nothing that I would change with Rowan-Cabarrus Community College. Caring professors, an uplifting atmosphere in student life, campus food-- what else could be done to improve this place?
Every teacher I've had (which vary from traditional class teachers to online class teachers), except 2 online instructors were amazing! The advisers know very little and are very little help for counseling/directional advice. Most of the advisers are former students. South Campus is smaller than North Campus, but better for many commuters in the area. Overall, I wish I would've gone to another community college. The student life is at 0%; all RCCC cares about are military students and continuing education students (which are mostly old people). FIRST GENERATION students are completely alone, and I suggest that they transfer early so they can get better help/advice at a better prepared/more caring school. The online teachers are way too busy; I've had many teachers that taught classes during the week, and didn't answer emails on weekends or after 5pm. How is any of that supposed to be toward an online student's benefit? Yikes, they also spend all of their money on aesthetics.
This school deals primarily with students who have lived, worked, and studied within the state. As a student who moved from a different state with credits to transfer, I did have to work to ensure that I was given the credits I deserved. Any student from out of state who is not willing to stay on top of the credit evaluation will most likely be given the lowest difficulty equivalency. The admission staff are very nice, so any proof you are able to provide as to why your credits were incorrectly evaluated will be promptly addressed and fixed. My main complaint would be the unclear degree requirements. There are many classes that are listed under multiple requirements, but some classes can be applied twice and others are not. As a student who is transferring without a degree, this does not interfere with my education. However, anyone who wants to earn a degree will have some difficulty evaluating what classes they need to take to minimize their course load.
