What I love about IRSC is the detail-oriented teachers and employees. They help you quickly and resolve problems effectively and in good intentions. This school is easy-going and will teach you alot considering the diversity level. The teachers speak clearly and are easy to understand.

I chose to want to attend this college because it is one of the only colleges in south Florida that offers ore vet courses. I have wanted to attend classes for that for a very long time but never wanted to go away for school. I love my home town and would much rather be here. This school has offered me the chance to do so.
