5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses at Roane State vary from campus to campus, so there are times where you will have to travel to take a specific class you need for your major. However, if it is something you are passionate about, I highly recommend the travel because it will pay off in the future. Remember that the professors are always there to help you, and with small class sizes, you are able to achieve a more personal relationship with the staff.

Academic Experience: My counselor was a tremendous help in choosing my major as a Civil Engineer and helped me pick out specific courses that would benefit me long term. The workload can be challenging at times, but with the help of staff, it is an adaptable program that you have to be willing to work with in order to get your specified gain.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Registering for classes was a breezy process. However, with so many options, it can feel stressful if you are wandering on your own. I encourage other students to talk to professors and councilors and letting them know they are seeking advice. Everyone I met so far has been an incredible help to the school and students.

Academic Flexibility: Some classes are not offered at the specific campus, so you may have to travel to another county to complete a course. That can be very challenging to many students who lack transportation, especially if they have a job they have to work around.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would choose to go to community college over again based on the idea that the small school offers more opportunity to have a better relationship with the staff. This will in turn help you to feel more comfortable with the process of choosing a specific major. The best experiences are being able to connect with other students that can help you study and make urge you to do your best in every situation you find yourself. The one main concern about any community college is that it has a lower impact when applying to graduate school. However, I have found that attending Roane State has helped me achieve more because it is a smaller school that has been able to assist all of my personal needs.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have completely enjoyed my time at Roane State so far. Before registering for specific classes, my previous professors and councilors spoke about certain fields that would be best for students to enter and the job outlook for many of those. If there was ever a question to be asked, I have always felt comfortable going to the school and speaking with anyone available.

Student Body: Coming from an incredibly small town, many of the students that attend Roane State Community College have a great understanding of the importance of getting a college degree. That is why I believe many of us are such motivated and hardworking students - we learned from our surroundings. There are many study groups at our school. Students are extremely friendly and it was easy to make new friends and help each other out. Unfortunately, there is a small amount of diversity at our school. However, students realize that there is a much larger world out there and I have found many students who love to explore different cultures because it is something that is not offered in such a small, secluded area. We live in what is considered the "bible belt" to outsiders, but have an understanding and acceptance of those who surround us. We are open to new ideas and learn from the new things we can experience.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The overall process of completing financial aid was at times stressful, but once talking with other students and staff members, I was given great advice on how to answer specific questions. Overall, the hassle was worth every moment of my education thus far due to the quality of professors I have encountered in just the short time I have been to Roane State Community College.

Campus Resources: I have found that the staff of Roane State Community College are extremely helpful. All of the professors I have spoken with will stay after to make sure that you are understanding the material and will help you to absorb the information they presented in class. There is a student center where many kids hang out before heading to their next class. It is a very clean a quite place to study, furnished with computers and seating arrangements.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The program is fantastic, the opportunities are endless.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There is a very wide variety of classes and time options to work for me.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There are very many student oriented activities for me to participate in.

Academic Flexibility: I'm mostly neutral on this. Having had to quit my job to take care of a sick family member, then later receiving help with this, there isn't really much to be flexible with. While I've not personally transferred yet, I've heard a few others had trouble with transferring credits. These reports were almost a decade back, so I'm hoping that isn't the case now.

Overall Experience: It's had its highs and lows. I do remember having a final exam one day and having to walk from my mother's place of employment to the school, then trying to study in the student lounge until time for the test. Instead, I wound up talking to a classmate I hadn't been able to speak to before. I also learned that while it's possible to walk there, we really need sidewalks... badly. I'd still choose it again if I could do everything all over again, because at least I won't be drowning in (as much) student debt... I hope.

Overall Experience: Aside from one horrid teacher who had temporarily dissuaded me from attending here, the teachers are lovely people who will gladly help a struggling student if they ask. I've come to believe that running into that first teacher was just bad luck, as literally every single teacher since has been more than willing to stay with me and explain concepts that I might not understand, or provide more material to a struggling class. Of course, still only getting 4/5 because of that one guy, but when he finally retires, the school's teachers will deserve all five points.

Overall Experience: Around here, not too much emphasis is placed on individual schools, so I can't say whether it's highly valuable or not. Value is placed instead on whether you actually received a degree, instead of where it came from, and that would make any degree valuable. I've not yet seen the alumni network, nor the career center. So far, the only employers I've seen recruiting are restaurants that have placed posters on the poster boards...

Student Body: well, we all kinda... look alike. My county isn't very diverse, though, and people who transfer to RSCC from elsewhere usually go to the larger campuses. Levels of acceptance of diversity depend on which level of classes you're talking about. entry-level classes such as Comp 1 usually have more immature people, due to dual-credit allowing high school kids in. More advanced, career-specific courses, such as Anatomy and Physiology, tend to contain more adults, and also tend to be more accepting of others. The vast majority of students I've seen are middle to upper class females, and in this area, almost everyone is Christian and conservative, so those who differ usually have to be cautious of that...

3 College Student

Academic Experience: There's not really anything unique about it, due to being in the pre-nursing section of the nursing program. the workload is just the general education plus an introduction to human biology. The curriculum can be challenging at times, but usually just requires reading a few times and asking questions. I strongly dislike having to drive to Oak Ridge just to get access to a lab, though... and won't be expecting job opportunities until I actually get into (and through) the actual nursing program.

3 College Student

Academic Experience: everything's just average except for the professors. Most of the professors are really nice, and will take the time to help if asked.

2 College Student

Campus Resources: My particular campus (as Roane State has several) is lacking a library, proper study area, and a lab, forcing science students and those needing a college library to drive to the Oak Ridge campus, which can be a very long, rather dangerous drive for some. I have yet to see any athletic centers on our campus, and campus activities are focused more towards their larger campuses, rather than the smaller ones that my classmates and I attend. As for aesthetics, the building is clean, but blends in with every other building in the area... nothing to write home about.

Academic Flexibility: Attending Roane State Community College has been a joy. I would recommend anyone looking for a college that will accommodate to their needs to apply. I have enjoyed my time here and if I had to choose another college over again, I would choose Roane State in a heartbeat.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I encourage anyone to attend RSCC due to its environment.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The courses have been tailored to keep us "in the know".

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: My degree is very valuable and I'm proud to have attended RSCC.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: They can be challenging but the professors are there to help you!
