The University of Rio Grande is a community college for a student who is attending for an associates degree. It is a community college the first two years, then a private college for someone who is getting a bachelors degree or higher. This school is a small town school surrounded by farms and beautiful nature. It is a very easy-going school that is very laid back. It is know for its wonderful teaching program. Overall, this school is a good school to attend. The downfall is that when you attend the private university the semester rates increase tremendously, however plenty of scholarships will help save you money.
Review University of Rio Grande
The campus is beautiful and they keep up on it very well during the Fall and Spring semesters. There is always something going on. I've had a lot of issues with professors not being fair or doing things they should be. However, my advisor is amazing. They do have the tendency to treat you like you are dispoasble sometimes. We just got a new Dean of students so I'm hoping thingd change.
To start out Vinton County was a good school at the beginning. Then everything changed and got worse. If I had to choose again where to go to school, I do not really think I would choose it again. But Buckeye Hills Career Center is the best school ever. It has really opened up my eyes and has filled my brain with so much more knowledge. I really love that school, it was more than a school to me it was like a home and a family. I really love how everyone is so welcoming there and it has a great attmosphere also. The best school in the nation, my volational school Buckeye Hills.
