I love this college! I have completed my undergraduate classes here and benefited so much from my experience at this college. Classes unfortunately fill up pretty fast, but that's what you can expect from a community college. Overall, this is a very welcoming college with great staff and a pretty campus.
I haven't been at the school for every long but the time that I have been I've really enjoyed it. The teachers are also really reliable and are there when needed. I had a few cousins who attended the school and they all gave good comments about it. I now that I am enrolled can also say that it is what they claimed it to be.
RCC is a great school to attend to. Its packed so that chances of getting in classes is a fight. You would have to stay for a week or two for somebody to drop, but college life is a grind. Professors are nice, so there descriptions on the syllabus are not on there for a reason. The student store comes in handy and the food is okay. The parking however, forget it so you better come early to get your spot. Literally! Other than that its a nice school.
At first, I was disappointed about attending community college instead of a University, but after my first week at RCC my thoughts changed. This school was great, so much change had gone on since the last time I'd been there, there's so many trees, beautiful scenery, but you have to look for it. Every school has professors we do and don't like, mine taught me what I needed to know, and we're always in their office during office hours. There are labs around campus where you can get FREE tutoring! RCC also accepts AP scores so I saved myself A LOT of time and money on English classes. Because of sports and classes, I was on campus during every possible hour and I always felt safe. Cafeteria food was better than expected, and the sports teams at RCC are also great. Overall, my experience at Riverside City College was a positive and memorable one.

Making the transition from high school to college can be tough, or it can be simple. The key thing is to start early. I would tell myself not only in my senior year, but my freshman year, to stay focused on school, and to always strive to be the best you can be. Thinking back to the start of my high school life, I honestly shouldve tried harder. I was so worried about what I looked like, and if my hair was okay, rather than the importance of the most precious thing on this earth, the future. I would have told myself to start applying for scholarships in junior year so that way I could get ahead. I would also say to worry about that 75% english test to get a better score to better my GPA, so that I can get into the University of my dreams. I know that no matter what the age, its never to late to pursue your dreams. Looking back now, I can honestly say that I should have prepared myself better for the future, whether its financially or educationally.
Anyone desiring a social life and activities that college aged kids seek.
Riverside Community College is a public 2 year institution that has three campuses and serves the communities of Riverside, Norco, and Moreno Valley.
This worst thing about my school is how small it is. I attend the Norco campus of Riverside Community College. The size of my campus limits the amount of classes which can occur and which classes are available. For example, my campus does not offer the science classes I need for the undergraduate part of my Biology degree. There are not as many class times available for me to choose from. This makes it a lot less convient for me. I am thinking about going to the main campus the next semester due to this.
It is often very difficult to obtain the pre-requisite classes for many of the sciences. You are required to take Anatomy and Physiology for the majority of the medical programs (ie, Nursing, Physician Assistant, Paramedic, etc) and to register for this class is nearly impossible. Every semester, there are dozens of people attempting to add the 3 or 4 sections that RCC offers and no available openings.
Any person who is motivated to learn and excel in their classes and in life down the road should attend this school. Its a much cheaper approach to college with the same highly rated classes offered at four year institutions.
The environment leaves you completely in a soothed mood. It's a very odd but pleasant feeling, one that leaves you in wonderment. And this is because the campus isn't loud most of the time. It's especially pleasant when the breeze is calm and blowing all around you.
I just feel very safe and at peace. Schools that create such an atmosphere for me is a plus and thats what I always feel there.
The best thing about my school is the parking situation. When I attended the University of California, Riverside, it would take me sometimes 20 minutes to find a parking spot. When I transferred to Riverside Community College, the Norco campus, the first thing I noticed was how much easier it was to park and go to class compared to my old school. This gave me more time to study because I would not have to leave my house 20 to 30 minutes earlier to find parking. Also, the parking permits are relatively cheep.
The students in my classes are of all different ages, races, and genders all with the same goal to get a college education they are focused and determined to succeed in the classroom as well as on the court or on the field if they are an athlete like myself.
the school is not exclusive like a csu or uc so there will be a variety of people on campus. most if not all the students will be locals. the school is local and having 3 campuses makes it convenient to attend. if a class is not offered at your campus but at the nearest one, you can totally take that class at the other campus, just have to fit it into your schedule. that way you dont have to wait until next semester to move ahead.
I wish I had known that I had the opportunity to shoot for a higher school.
My school is known for their excellent medical program that helps students transition from their first two years of college to their third and fourth years.
