    I love it here, I am currently taking 15 units and it is not bad. Campus is awesome, many variety of people to talk to. I have made my experience awesome because I have to spend a lot of time here. I did not know what to think of college when I first got here. The only images I knew where the ones on tv and those were not always the case. However it is what you make it. I really love it, the campus is awesome and is always expanding to meet more student needs. There are some people who walk around hating the campus and what not, but we see the same things and I like it. Obviously you should walk in with a positive attitude and a goal in mind if you really want to make this experience memorable. I am not saying it won't be hard, it will. Some of the hardest and trying moments of my life have happened on campus but I have learned from them and applied my new knowledge to challenges I face today. I once met a guy on the first week of this new semester and he was totally scared of it. he did not know what to do with his life, college was so complicated and he probably felt like giving up. There will be giants but if you look at it all at once, you might faint. There are things that need to be learned but the process can take up to two years. So don't freak out if everything is not clear right away, calm down and take it day by day, a little at a time, really.

    Parking is always going to be a pain in the backside at Riverside Community College. Even with a 5 story parking garage and a huge parking lot, parking is usually extremely hard to come by. I recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before your class just in case you have to drive around for a bit to find a spot.

    The students at Riverside Community College come from all sorts of different backgrounds. In a 30 student class, there are 30 different backgrounds, and I personally find that fascinating. You get to hear about students who traveled to various countries, different religious practices, and about everyone's take on everything from how we should manage our food to whether aliens exist. You get so much more out of this school then just an education, and that is the reason I enjoy going to this school so much.
