3 College Student

Overall Experience: It wasn't the worst, but it sure was far off from the best.

2 College Student

Career Services: Not very helpful in the process of transferring and not very knowledgeable of which certain courses have been updated or have been taken off of the transfer list to certain universities/colleges.

3 College Student

Online Courses: It is not to shabby except, I never understood the need for online discussion boards being part of the curriculum, and how it affects the outcome of the final grade. The teachers try to hard to make it like a regular classroom when the whole point of taking online course is to avoid that scenario in the first place.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: The athletic centers I haven't checked out much, but there was a student who was walking around with a petition pleading the school to allow an open gym session. So that shows that the athletic facilities are only open to actual teams.

3 College Student

Campus Resources: There are few centers of computer labs, but those fill up quickly and the signal for the WiFi is not the strongest, but I understand with all the students attending can cause the signal to weaken.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: I am currently just doing my basics for my degree plan of electrical engineering, and I had some great professors, but also a lot of terrible professors.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: There is an okay amount of variety of staff there, but a lot of the professors have communication problems, and are very late to respond to students emails. Or to even set up office appointments.

3 College Student

Facilities: There are some different parts, but not many that make the school stand out from my perspective.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: The Financial Process is such a hassle and a pain to deal with, its more challenging than it has to be. The financial aid faculty are not much help at all and there are so many hoops to go through with this institutions financial process.

3 College Student

Student Body: The students are unique in their own way, most people like myself are attending then leave as soon as possible from campus. So the social interaction is bare minimal.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Ii love the tech support for students they have tutors on the clock helping

4 College Junior

Facilities: I love Richland College has a great environment for students trying to get their basics.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid is not the best. I will admit that it was a bit of a hassle getting financial aid, however, once I went in to talk to them everything was sorted out. At first, my request was denied because I was not registered for any classes. Which is ridiculous because the deadline for application was due before registration for classes the next semester started. However, upon going in and talking to them about it, they fixed the problem and I got all of the financial aid I needed in order to finish out my degree.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: The athletic center is not good at all. They have around 15 machines, and a very small room. The locker rooms really aren't that great either. There are not very many campus activities throughout the year. Really the only positive thing is there student center. It is extremely well advertised and available to be seen prettymuch around the clock. A lot of tutoring is available and everything.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is plenty of availability of computer labs, and the wireless network has not gone down a single time since i started attending 3 years ago. The speed is great, and it works extremely well with personal equipment as well as their equipment. However, you cannot use your own personal printer, and their printers do cost a significant amount of money per paper printed.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: The professors of online, or even web-enhanced classes, are great. They really know how to keep students involved in the class. I learned a lot in all of my online classes, and really got to know the professor. The professors for all classes have designated office hours, so they have a lot of availability.

College Senior

Career Services: I have not looked into any post-grad services at my school simply because I've already worked out with other universities how credits will transfer.
