As long as you are able to email the school with questions they get back quickly. Always check with your advisor before doing classes, paying bills and school ranking. Professors are very easy to talk to and get along with. The University of Rio Grande does not have many organizations on campus for students to be apart of and it would be super nice and helpful when looking for jobs to have that experience.

It’s a small town college, most accredited for its medical, and business degrees. Short walks to class, with a very friendly environment. Professors care about their students well being(for the most part). And affordable for associates degrees and certificate programs!
Rio Grande Community College is a good place to attend if you are wanting a small student to teacher ratio. The college has tutoring services available if you are unable to grasp the concept in class, and the teachers are in their offices at various times throughout the day to help you as well.
