    The school it great for students who want to be closer to home a small and hands on environment with great professors.

    Not much really, i'm not a party girl. I do hang out with friends, go to dinner and movie, but nothing serious. I'm very laid back.

    Food and Dining

    No Food and Dining, its a community college.

    Dorm Life

    No dorm life, it's an community in which you have to commute daily.

    Academic Rigor

    In any school setting academic is important and River Parish Community College holds that same integrity.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just because the school is smaller, doesn't mean that you should BS and not do your work or study for test. River Parishes Community College is equally as challenging as other universities.

    I choose a smaller setting with fewer students, hands on resources and a professor who could better equip me. Thrilled with my decision, it has allowed me to become more focused and determine to succeed in all avenues of my higher education. This new school year I plan to achieve a 4.0 GPA, something I have always aspired for throughout in my college career.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There's a really beautiful bridge that connects the main building to building 1, there's a lot of natures beauty to be scene there.

    What to do for fun

    RPCC is only 20 minutes from Baton Rouge and only 45 minutes from The Big Easy, you'll never be bored.

    Food and Dining

    RPCC isn't exactly centrally located, there isn't much around it. However, they are moving to a new campus that will be closer to food areas.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms, but most people are local so it's not really needed.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes are a little too easy, but in some cases that is a good thing. If you're not a bio major you'll never be in a class with a bunch of them. They make classes in all general electives for non-major students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Definitely apply for fafsa, even if you don't think you'll get anything from the government, RPCC has a lot of grants that will help you pay for school. CAREFULLY choose your classes! I always try to see an academic adviser before I make my schedule for the semester. They help me know that I'm on track to graduate, and that I'm taking classes that will help me when I transfer to another school.
