I never took online courses before. I was scared because I thought they's be difficult to pass because there's no teacher in front of you, but one I started everything seemed to go smoothly. When you take online classes, your not as rushed to learn things. Each assignment has a given amount of time that's more than enough to learn the material. You can also log into your courses at anytime of the day gthat fits into your schedule. Communicating with the instructor and your classmates are easy. They're there to help you better understand the work and are just a click away!

School Review '12 – I think that the professors here at rpcc are outstanding. They really make you feel like they want you to succeed. With the large number of students that attend it can sometimes be overwhelming and deserving students hava a chance of getting over looked. All of my teachers office hours fit perfectly with my schedule and are more than willing to work around. Being a incoming freshman i admit i was scared, i wasnt sure of what to expect but between the faculty and students ive never felt more welcome. The only thing i could possibly change about rpcc is the parking. I would definitely reccomend this school.

I am very proud to attend River Parishes Community College. I think by chosing the school was the best descision I've made after checking into a few other schools first. The teachers are so generous, caring, and helpful. They offer their time to help after class to explain anything students dont understand. I love the faculty, they are also very caring and express alot of concern for the students. My experience has been great for my first semester, I hope the transferring institution I chose will have the great qualities RPCC has.
