Am learning a lot
The teacher's at Richland are usually great. I've had only 1 or 2 that weren't great. But almost all of them have been great.
Am enjoying being here
The atmosphere at Richland is just like a 4yr university. People enjoy being there and hanging out with people they don't know. The outside of the college is very nice and open. Inside provides signs and maps and chairs everywhere.
Bang for the buck
Classes are worth the cost because the teacher's seem to be more personal than what I have heard. Plus, the price only $123/class unless you are taking a 4 credit class.
Tips for prospective students
Sign up early and make sure you have a plan of what you are doing because there is nothing worse than having to wait a semester to take a class you could have been enrolled in 2 weeks earlier.
Great for these types of students
Students who like friendly, more personal teachers. Students who like a college atmosphere with a mixture of other students. Students who want the same education that you would get spending $6,000-$20,000/semester for $500.

All the classes I have taken covered all the required material for each subject and the instructors made the course work fun and easy to absorb.
Am enjoying being here
The Richland Student community is very helpful and there are many clubs and societies anyone can join or start your own. The college is very diverse and anyone can fit in really well.
Bang for the buck
Classes are cheap, and there are financial aid offices always willing to help.
Tips for prospective students
Register early! During Richland's enrollment the campus gets packed with students new and old. Try and register for classes online but its always good to visit the Richland's advising office for any questions.
Great for these types of students
Any student who wants to take their core classes, students who just do not know what university they want to attend, or anyone that just wants to get a good education at an affordable price.

I never realized how unhelpful high school teacher were. They really just taught to the TAKS test. At Richland the teachers took time to explain themselves if anyone was confused. They told stories to help the class relate things to real life, and some even did current event discussions at the beginning of every class. They encourage questions, and make sure you know that no question is a dumb question. These teachers really know their stuff. Most of them are older so the are expert enough to answer almost any questions. My only bad teachers were the ones who tried to flaunt their knowledge instead of simply teaching.

I love this campus. I decided to enroll at Richland before I had ever seen the campus and when I went to enroll I fell in love with it. There's a creek that runs the length of the campus lined with trees and benches to sit and enjoy a nice day. Other than not having a room there I totally felt like I was on a university campus. Everyone is friendly, minus those few people who still haven't left high school in the past. It's just a welcoming campus.
Bang for the buck
The prices here are amazing, and I was so amazed that the fall ( I had 13 hours) and spring (I had 14 hours) totaled to less than $2200, required supplies included! Compared to the 20-30 thousand my friends are paying at major universities to take the same classes, for now, I feel like I stole my education so far. Trust me you'll love the prices.
Tips for prospective students
Study, study, study! When you have a test coming up there are no test reviews, it's completely up to you to know all the material. Manage your time effectively. I struggle with this still, it's easy to procrastinate in high school, but college teacher could care less. learn to manage time now while you have time to correct your mistakes. Ask questions whether in class, after class, by e-mail whatever, just ask them!
Great for these types of students
This campus is great for everyone. I have met people from France, Columbia, Vietnam, etc. fellow classmates and teachers. It's diverse in so many ways that anyone could fit in as much or as little as they want. There are so many school activities and clubs around, there's something for everyone.

In three sentences
a great college. i attended richland college directly out of high school in 1985, got sidetrack with marriage and starting a family, and now i am back. it is still the great professional college it was in 1985.
Tips for prospective students
stay focused and keep your eye on your goals.
Academic Rigor
i am a single mother of two teenage boys who keep me very busy along with a very demanding job as a flight attendant. this job has varied schedules that i have to constantly rearrange to fit my schedule with school. very challenging to say the least.
What to do for fun
richland college has a very nice running/walking trail. enjoy!
Bang for the buck
richland's campus is big but easy to get around. i love the pond and my walk to and fro to classes.
Great for these types of students
serious about learning in a relaxed atmosphere.
Campus Safety
my last class ends at 11:30pm so safety was a major concern for me. i constantly see richland's security patroling the campus and the parking lights are well lit.

The professors at Richland want you to succeed. They offer office hours, and the campus itself has tutoring centers for whatever you may need help with. It's a great place to begin your college education.
Am enjoying being here
Richland encompasses many social activities and clubs. The SGA has events frequently, as well as many other clubs. The campus is beautiful, and you can stop in and see free open to the public performances.
Bang for the buck
The school is moderately inexpensive, it's a less expensive way to get a quality education that will carry on to where you may go in the future. I know if you work hard and gain admittance into Phi Theta Kappa, the international junior college honour society, that if you are a very active member you have a chance to gain a full ride to Southern Methodist University.
Tips for prospective students
Take advantage of tutoring centers wherever you choose to go. Also do not wait until you're far behind to get help, if you don't understand get help then rather than waiting three weeks.
