    i loved this college while i attended. the students and staff are great to work with. most of the college staff are well educated and efficient in their duties however some of the teachers are not current in their teaching methods or ideas.

    In three sentences

    RCC is a great college for students who like small classes. It is great for people who are looking to further their education or for someone who is wanting to go back and finish their education. It is a good college, with good teachers for not near as much money as a major college.

    Dorm Life

    None

    Tips for prospective students

    RCC does a wonderful job of keeping you up-to-date on deadlines for things such as financial aids and drop dates, but you need to keep on top of things yourself to make sure everything gets done that needs to.

    In three sentences

    RCC is such a welcoming school and it is such a pleasure to be able to attend such a small-town, close-knit school and not feel like I am off in the Boondocks. The class size is fairly small, with about 25 students per classroom. The teachers are absolutely wonderful, with all of them showing a lot of enthusiasm to help students as much as possible.

    Campus Safety

    Safe as can be.

    Greek Life

    Two honor societies: Sigma Kappa Delta and Phi Theta Kappa

    Clubs and Activities

    Many opportunities to get involved if you just put the effort into finding out about the extracurricular activities on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Great academics and transferable credit hours for the price.

    What to do for fun

    Reidsville is 10 miles from the school and has some outdoor recreation spots and a bowling alley. Otherwise, Greensboro (30 mins away) or Eden (20 mins away) are your best bets.

    Food and Dining

    Subway on campus. A good breakfast and Italian restaurant a mile from the school.

    Dorm Life

    No dorm life. Live off campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Maybe closer to a 3.5, not as rigorous as a higher 4-year institution but a good, tough basic knowledge.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not skip class, attendance is key. Go here if you are looking to get your first two years of basic college education for a low price.

    In three sentences

    Very good school to earn an associates degree. Small class sizes and teachers that are very willing to help but will still hold you accountable for your work.
