RCC staff are pleasant and very informative. The campus is very accessible to all needs. The 'My Richland' website has every aspect of the school at one's fingertips!
Catherine from Decatur, IL
At first I was hesitant about attending a community college, however, RCC proved me wrong. I wouldn't change my decision and I wish they offered the opportunity to achieve a bachelor's degree. The staff and classes are fantastic.
