Rust College Reviews
My experience at Rust college has been very good so far as me being a current freshman in the first year experience program. The students and professors at rust college are helpful as far as helping to make sure the freshmen were to get to their classes. I can tell that the professors are teaching what the student needs to learn, my classes so far are going very well. Also, I know where to go if I need anything fixed or check out, Rust College has a very Mass Communication program. But I really like the way Rust College students and professors get their business and class assignments done.
I enjoy attending Rust College. I make new friends every year and further my learning experience to get my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. I enjoy meeting new people, trying new things with friends and even some of the teachers. I do wish some things about the school would be fixed or upgraded some.
When I was in the 5th grade, we all took a trip to Rust College. As a young age, I was very excited. When we got there, they was talking to us about our future. They gave us good speech, and fed us well. Since I am in the 12th, I remember majority of what they was telling us. Now I want to succeed by their choice they gave us and my choice.
