This Community College offers so many opportunities for its students, but my favorite aspect of this school is the teachers. They are always willing to help and make sure that you're getting the most out of your education which means a lot to students. They have a very diverse campus and offer a lot of out of school activities for student to get engaged. It’s not only enough to have great teachers but also a friendly campus. The campus includes a game room for any in-between class time and there’s always free popcorn in the den! Not to mention plentiful amounts of chairs and couches around for a spot to rest between classes of the occasional nap.

The professors are so knowledgeable in their fields, which is inspiring to say the least, and allow themselves to make time for the students when teaching so that the learning environment is full of students participating and understanding the course load. The classes are not too large and the students are very open-minded; making class discussions interesting and fun!

The broad range of activities and new reforms (such as our new health care on campus) keep this school better each year. The advisors are always available to attend to all of the questions I have about my college pathway, and are clear about the classes that I need to take. All of my credits are transferable to a new college, and many colleges partner up with RRCC. For example, the 3 plus 1 program allows me to save money by attending RRCC for my bachelors degree, then completing all the rest of my coursework at another school.

The only negative thing I can say about the school are some of the teachers. I have had some of the best teachers I have ever had in my life. However, some could care less about the material they are teaching (and it shows!)

Other than that, I am a proud attendant of Red Rocks Community College!
