What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a pretty good school with good instructors and amazing opportunities for music, culinary, nursing and cosmetology students in particular. I am in the art program which could use some improvement but the art professors are great! I especially love the opportunities the facilities have, like the library, book store and cafeteria.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

RCC is one of the larger community college campuses in the area. I like the environment because I've met a lot of hard working students that are extremely focused on their goals to either transfer to a four-year university or move on to their careers. This college is very close to UC Riverside, so there is a lot of extra curricular activities available. It is also not to far from the Tyler Mall, which is one of the more popular malls in Riverside county. I have experienced a few downsides while attending RCC. For the first few weeks of each semester parking is absolutely terrible. Also, because this school has a large number of students, it is difficult to get into transferable math and science courses if you do not have priority registration.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

RCC has an excellent art department, there are plenty of options from culinary classes to music, and painting classes available. Most math classes are done through Pearson, which is irritating, since I notice it makes the professors lazy they let Pearson do all the work and the teaching. Aside form the math classes needing help most other classes are good, some professors are in and out in a flash, some are very strict on deadlines and attendance and on the other end some are pretty easy going,I haven't really met any in between.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Riverside City College is overall a really nice Community College. It has a ton of programs to get you out early as well as if you join almost any club or organization there is priority registration. The classrooms are in need of a make over but they are functional. There is vending machines all over but not enough food places. The library is really nice. The Honors program is amazing it can get you guaranteed admission into big schools like UCLA. There is a large variety of clubs as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am really enjoying my time here at RCC. There' is opportunities for everyone. Whether transferring or wanting to get into a trade, RCC is affordable and the people on campus aren't political or anything they just mind there own business. I'd recccommend it to anybody.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that Riverside City College has many professors that truly care about students and ensuring that the best learning environment is available. It is often hard to get classes needed to graduate because of how impacted the school is, it would be helpful if the school was expanded to accommodate all of the students that attend RCC.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Riverside Coty college is actually a really good option for people wanting to go to college but not jump in all at once. The schools offers so much from great extracurricular activities such as marching band, track and field, and also offers a variety of different clubs to join such as the archaeology club. The acedemics side of riverside is also very highly praised with nursing and engineer programs that many strive for. There are also tons of students that come from overseas just to attend riverside, I being one myself. Overall Riverside is an outstanding choice as a starter into college life and anyone who attends will enjoy there time here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You can save a lot of money by going here, I personally have saved a lot but textbooks are really expensive. I recommend buying them online from cheap websites. The school doesn't provide housing , so no dorms. The food is really over-prized, I bought a small bag of chips for $1.49. Also, the cafeteria food is not as good. Some classes are really hard compare to other. Most teachers are very passionate about teaching ,so thats good. The campus over all is really nice but since its a open campus, it doesn't feel as safe at night. CARRY A PEPPER SPRAY PEOPLE! Also classes are really hard to get, even if you get on the waitlist, it doesn't necessarily adds you in the class.

What is your overall opinion of this 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.

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

If I could go back to the year 2000, when I was a highschool senior, I would have to tell myself to go to college directly out of high school and pursue my career goal. I would tell the high school me to wait to get married and have children and attend college first. I would warn myself the struggles of raising four children alone and attending school. I however, would not have listened and would have still made the choices I made back then. I am grateful for the choices that I have made as a single mother that is attending college and I find it very rewarding. My children look up to me and get to see the hardships and struggles and it has in return given them the motivation to do well in school and hold on to their dreams.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The parking is a nightmare and the school is well over capacity.
