I think this community college is a great place to start your degree. This college offers many majors to choose from and makes it easy to obtain an associates degree with little to no debt! I have seen nothing but hard working students and professors, especially during Covid-19, everyone has been flexible and on task to get what needs to be done.
Since graduating, I cannot help but reminisce on the good times I had at Reading Area Community College. Although quite nervous in the beginning, I came to appreciate the diversity on campus from different ethnicities to different age groups. Not only did the diversity show me different aspects to life, but it had also consumed me with comfort to know that I am not alone. Without a doubt, it can be a very stressful experience trying to obtain a degree. However, though, it was definitely reassuring to know others are on the same page as I; trying to make their lives better. Additionally, the school offered me an amazing education with even more astounding professors. My professors, although different in teaching styles, taught me to never give up and to expect the unexpected. From every high and every low, my professors kept me on my toes. Although it was sometimes rigorous, the one-to-one attention gave me the confidence in myself and my abilities. Hence, it allowed me to obtain my degree with the title of Summa Cum Laude and a Phi Theta Kappa member.
RACC is a great school to start at because it is less expensive and a small college. For someone who is a first generation college student this would be an amazing place to start! They care about you and want you to succeed you just need to put in the effort!
My overall opinion of Reading Area Community College is that it is an okay school, but it is just a community college. There is not a whole lot going on and I am only there for class. Reading is not the best area in Pennsylvania to be, but overall I guess it could be worse.

I would defintely studier hardier and take my schooling serious and my teacher seious. Life is so hard and it is so important to go to college and get a degree now a days. I wish I would of study harder on my test and harder on my homework and in my studyhall times also. I would encourage the kids to time advantage that they have this time and use it wisely because it will never come back to them.
A majority of the professors are excellent and truly care about your success in the class room. Many will go above and beyond to assist their students with any questions or academic needs.
For helping out minorities to get the most out of the schooling that they can. It really help encourage the childrens to study and not to give up. It is encouraging to see the counselors helping the kids out.
Certain classes are quite easy. Honors classes wil make you rip your hair out, cry, get angry and deprive you of sleep. After the class is over you look back proud and different knowing you learned and worked to the best of your abilities.
Reading Area Community College is an amazing bounce board launching you into the future without taking to much money. This college requires you to put yourself into it. The more you participate and work the more you receive. Take the honors courses. They are refreshing yet challenging. This small community becomes a home you don't want to leave, with friends you will keep for a lifetime.
My classes have held many varied groups of people, however, no matter the differences all whom I have worked with have been very kind, and cooperative people, making class enjoyable to go to.
Personally I am part of the Front Street Journal, the honor society, and the Legacy magazine. There is an international club, an arts club, and many more.
Hispanic, which is true for about 40% of the school. There are many different origins to the students. For instance my heritage is swiss.
In general I have had a great experience at RACC, with little frustrations. The issues I did experience was with individual professors. One which I felt didn't teach much of the content, but rather depended upon interactive peer teaching of the subject matter instead.
