Red Rocks Community College provided the perfect foundation for launching my career in the solar PV industry. I'd do it all over again. The instructors were knowledgable and many were true industry professionals about to relate to real-world scenarios, very willing to share their knowledge and passion.

Red Rocks Community College is an amazing school where everyone feels included, respected, and the academic are great! Professors are always there to support student in the best way they can but also challenge them within class to ensure student become successful in their schooling career. I love Red Rocks-- my time with him has been nothing but great and I couldn't recommend it enough to students starting college.

For a community college, Red Rocks is such an amazing school. The teachers are genuinely there to help the students learn more and they want their students to succeed. The courses I have taken have been super fun and I enjoy going to school each day.

Alyssa - 11/27/2021

As a whole I enjoyed my experience at Red Rocks Community College. The facility is built really well and they have a lot of resources students can take advantage of. The financial aid office is always helpful and wanting to help. However, and this may just be my experience, I have had no luck with counselors. I have set up several appointments asking for help with my school schedule or asking about how to go about transferring and either they don't know anything about it or they want to get you out as soon as possible with no real response. I one time set up an appointment for help with my classes for the next semester and the counselor was 30 minutes late and she didn't help she told me to follow the sheet of paper they had given me when I was a freshman. I liked the majority of my teachers though. For a community college I was impressed with the amount of teachers that really wanted to see students succeed. I did have a few teachers that had no office hours and you were mostly teaching yourself, but most teachers like that did respond to emails immediately so you weren't on your own entirely. I did meet a lot of different people at this school and everyone has been nice and are hard working students who are also working a job.

  9. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    My school offers several quality programs, but not the degree I am looking for. Instead I have to go for a general degree, then transfer to a university before I can pursue my goals and edcuational plans. Though it is a community college, there should be more programs offered for students who are not looking to major in technical programs, but also to prepare for students who plan to enter graduate school as well. If my school went by this process, I would be able to pursue my goals.
