50% of students gave Richland Community College 5 stars overall.
I have enjoyed my overall R.C.C. experience. The school offers a wide variety of courses, for many different career paths. They are a very hands on school, they do not mind getting deep into classroom labs. The classes actually fill up very quickly, so, if you want to have a good choice on classes, sign up early! one exceptional experience I had was with my English professor. I had been taking a Saturday course and towards the end of the semester my babysitter canceled leaving me out to dry. My professor was kind enough to take time out during the week to give me a 1 on 1 class so that I didn't have to drop the course. Whew!
