Richland College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish I had known how unorganized the financial aid department was so that I could have went to a different community college with enough staff to process FA's on time.


I wish I had known how hard it was going to be to get money to pay for school.


The thing I wish I had known before coming to this school is how important time is and to get things done as soon as you can and not wait till the last minute to do things. Before coming to community college, I was enrolled in a 4 year institution, but because of my waiting and procrastination, I was unable to get the financial aid needed and in turn, I had to leave that previous school. Now knowing this, I am getting on the ball to eventually reach to the highest piont i can reach.


I wish that I knew how to manage my time more effectively. College work is a lot more demanding than high school work, and if I had better time management skills, I believe my grades would be better than they currently are now.


That they had programs available for single moms to aid in the financial part.
