Am learning a lot
If you are to enroll in a AAS degree programm at RTC, you'll be coming to college everyday from morning 7:00am to 3:00pm. It includes lecture hours and lab hours which guarantees you to learn what you learned for the day.
Am enjoying being here
The place I enjoy being in RTC is my classroom and the bakery. Bakery is amazing.
Bang for the buck
Tuition rate varies on how many classes or credits you are acquiring for the semester. I'm taking about five classes and takes away about $2000 for it.
Tips for prospective students
Please don't be a slacker in college. Always be prepared and ready to learn.
Great for these types of students
RTC is for students who are looking to obtain AAS degree and go to work force, immediately.

In three sentences
They have a really great Early Childhood Education program, that really cares whether or not you succeed. There are lots of programs so more people are allowed to better their future.
Tips for prospective students
Remain focused on the goals that you have set or your self and don't become side tracked, don;t postpone or half do your work. In the long run you are not cheating anyone else but yourself.
Academic Rigor
My Academic Rigor is to give it my all and do the best that I can. Making sure that i stay organized and on top of completing all of my work so it is completed on time.
Dorm Life
I do not stay in a dorm.
Food and Dining
Being a full time toddler teacher and also attending school myself I am always eating on the run no time to sit down and enjoy a good meal.
What to do for fun
I spend my little spare time reading, tanning, swimming, and spending time with my family.
Bang for the buck
I think that i got a lot of great knowledge, resources, skills, and along with all that several new friends that i am glad we were able to enjoy the program together. I do not think I would or could have asked for anything more out of the program. It was very informational and very well put togeher.
Clubs and Activities
I am the insurance coordinator for the Seatac Sharks Junior Football and Cheer that my son plays football and my daughter cheers for. I have been involved with this organization for three years and do not plan on leaving anytime soon, as children need as many activities to choose from as they are starting to slowly fade away.
Greek Life
I am not at a University where there are Fraternities and Sororities.
Campus Safety
I really like how safe the campus is the security guard does a great job making sure that she is walking and driving around to look for anything that is out of the ordinary. I also like how she comes and checks on the ECE Building because we are a ways away from the rest of the buildings.

Am learning a lot
This school has a lot of career-related programs, starting from one-quarter long to 2+ year. The programs vary, some are allied health programs, such as Medical Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, CNA, Massage Therapist, and so on. Some other programs include Refrigeration Technology, Professional Baking, Land Surveying, and a lot more. Those programs are mostly Monday-Friday 8 am until 2:30. You will be focused on getting the skills necessary for your chosen career. This school offers regular classes as well, such as Math, Psychology, Biology and others.
Am enjoying being here
The staff is pleasant for the most part, they want you to succeed and help you when you ask questions.
Bang for the buck
The prices are relatively low, especially for career programs! For example, it will cost around $10,000 at Pima Medical Institute to get into a pharmacy technician program, whereas here it will be around $5,000-which is half the price.
Tips for prospective students
Once you register, look up the books online, sometimes you may find a much better price than in the bookstore.
Check out their Financial Aid office, they have plenty of scholarships and grants available!
When in classes, don't hesitate to ask questions - it will work towards your benefit.
Great for these types of students
It is great for anyone who wants to aquire a good paying career in a relatively short time and not spend too much money.
