Although Rio Salado may be lacking in some extra curricular activities, the whole idea of this school is for it to be easily accessible to those who can't attend a regular school. I love the small, home-y feeling the building gives me when I need to visit it. I typically would only stop by to visit the bookstore or to take a test and each visit has been pleasant!
Rio Salado is a great choice for students who have busy schedules and do not have time to go to campus for class. Rio is also a more affordable alternative for community college. The teachers are responsive and the site is easy to navigate through. I recommend this scholl for anyone who works a full time job or has a family.
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.
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.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Rio Salado College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
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.
I think that the school or at least my classes are all online which allows me to do work from my high school while receiving both high school and college credit.
I like it because when you need help the instructors are there and give you all the help you need.
Somebody who procastinates and doesn't like reading text books.
Rio Salado College is very helpful in the university I essentially want to transfer to.
I never have to meet any of them face to face. Most would call me "anti-social".... I prefer to call it "Not user-friendly"!
What I consider to be the worst thing about my school is that it is all online. I consider this to be the worst thing because there is no in person interaction with the instructors which is especially hard when I attend a high school that is allowing me to take the college courses for high school and college credit, and I am not able to receive any help outside of the books that I am given because my high school teachers can't help me.
That its online and you can pick your start date.
Flexible start dates and plenty of online clases.
