What is your overall opinion of this school?

I don't have a problem with Reading Area Community College. The teachers were very nice to me and actually gave me the attention that I needed. I flourished my first year in college and I have gotten on the Dean's List two times in a row. It is a pretty decent school and very affordable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It has given me a great experience throughout the past 2 years of my time here. My goal is too have a bachelors shortly after pursue a masters. I feel like going to the Reading Area Community College truly pushed me forward in making education affordable and helped me build upon my education. With that being said I will be graduating from RACC in 3 weeks with a Business Admin AA (Transfer Associates) which I am more then thrilled too continue my education towards a bachelors at Temple University. Couldn't be more thankful of the education that RACC has offered truly am a blessed person. Great students, great diversity and amazing professors and other helpful people on campus to be in touch with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school and very good environment. I've enjoyed going there and made a lot of friends. I used to be enrolled at Montgomery County Community College and I disliked it so much I took a break from school all together but once I started going to RACC I really felt like I was a part of something special and I found people with the same likes and interests who are in the same field of study.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a community college. It is what you can expect of it. But what I didn't expect, was to enjoy my time here. I thoroughly have enjoyed the classes and the professors are really exceptional. They give you as equal of an education as you would get at any other college or university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My school is a safe campus with many security guards on duty. The academics are great too. There are many opportunities to meet with your instructors and are available to help. There are also many services offered at Reading Area Community College. The writing center is very helpful and I always get a second opinion on my papers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a small community school in a high crime city which makes people not interested. Though, the cost of the class are low, which offer many opportunities to people trying to save, low income families, and single parents. There is a lot of different cultures, beliefs, personalities, and races in RACC, but everyone is friendly with each other and respects the rights of each other. There are many group activities and club meetings. Friendly people, well trained teachers for the most part, and many areas to use a computer provided, or your own.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.
