My time at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College has been excellent! The school offers daytime classes, night classes, and online classes that can work for anyone's schedule. They are more than accommodating to their students. I, myself, have grown so much since enrolling here. I have earned a spot on the President's List every semester, as well as an invitation to their Honor's Society, which I accepted gratefully. I am very pleased with the education that I am receiving and thankful for the teachers who respond quickly to emails and to the library staff that helps at all hours with research tools. I am excited to put my degree to good use next year!

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.
