What is your overall opinion of this school?

This college is okay as long as you don't mind every class online with visits to the testing center as needed. Some of the teachers can be a pain when it comes to grading but nothing that I wouldn't stress out about. Just do your best. That's all that counts.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rio Salado College is an overall good school. I have been attending this school regularly since 2016 and have not had any major issues. The only issue I had was with financial aid verification, but other than that the professors are pretty good and respond regularly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rio Salado is an okay community college. everything is online. Not much interaction with other students or staff. Tutoring is difficult. They all have their own agenda and seem to be rushing. The classes are difficult not because of the material but the time management. I would not recommend this school to anyone playing sports or anyone who has a hard time teaching themselves.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rio Salado is mostly online, but it's a great school for those trying to get ahead on credits or trying to get an associate's degree. I got my asssociate's through Rio, and it was amazing. I attended a few online classes, but I got most of my credit through dual enrollment, which I highly recommend to anyone

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being an online school Rio Salado is definitely against the odds. My experience here has been great. I completed dual enrollment and regular enrollment here. I was active in the Honors Program and Phi Theta Kappa. The people are friendly and never had a problem with an instructor.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would say to not worry about my future. I would say to not worry about not knowing the field of study to go into or what to be "when you grow up". People are out there to help you make transitions and help you choose what to study. The college life is fun and nothing to be worried about!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I don't have anything bad to say about Rio Salado College.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It is very important to go to all your classes and study hard. Good grades are what matter not impressing your friends. Take time to study but also take time for yourself. Remember what's important in your life, family. Friends may come and go but family will be there forever. School is very important. Get as much education as you can. Always be learning in all you do. And always remember, nothing lasts forever. It will get better. Keep your chin up and keep a smile on your face.
