4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Since i`m in the high school program at Richland college we tend to have more work than the regular college students. Even though our work load is above normal the faculty always make sure to give us the best in order for us to thrive. For example, every week there are at least two different colleges stationed at the cafeteria for students to go and learn more. On top of that, once a semester the campus holds a career,college,service learning fair so the students can get connected and get the opportunities they need to succeed.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Even though Richland college only offers two years worth of credits the variety of courses is astonishing. The courses range from the basics to nanotechnology to a music degree. The learning center at the school is a perfect place to go if any student ever needs help and there are seats all over the place for students to sleep, eat, and study 24/7. The councilors do all the class regestration for the high school students so we do not have to worry about it but if there is a complication the councilors are quick to let the student know so it can be resolved as quickly as possible.

College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I really cannot give a rating, because I attend community college so there are really a limited access or courses I can take there. I feel once I transfer I will have a better opinion.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I think at my school there are people or professor who are there to help me. Sometimes I feel during the registration process that the most difficult part is getting through an advisor, and the students who work there make this difficult.

3 College Sophomore

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.
