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?
Review Rowan-Cabarrus Community College
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.
In my opinion, RCCC is an excellent starting college if you are looking to transfer after a few years. The cost of classes are reasonable and will lead a person to conserving a considerate amount of money for continuing education. The teachers become like family and are appreciated, liked and respected. I was able to obtain an abundant amount of information which is benefiting at my current college. One strong recommendation is for school counselors to sit down with the incoming students and discus career goals and steps to complete them. This will allow or encourage students to take the proper and minimal steps necessary to start on the right path toward their dream job or career of their choice. Unfortunately, only a minimum of my classes transferred to my current college due to not having this simple step. The counselor that I spoke with when enrolling at RCCC, placed me in a basic program due to the fact that I was unsure of what I wanted as a future career.
