Great college for the value! If you're looking for a good two-year college, RCTC is a great choice. I will recommend it to anyone!
Kelsey from Harmony, MN
RCTC is a very lively college with friendly people. The teachers at RCTC are very eager to teach and watch their students succeed. RCTC is a nice sized college and is not too big to the point where you feel lost and out of place.
