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.
