When I first decided to go Rox ISuper BrilliantUndecided
When I first decided to go Rox I was really nervous on account of only scoring a 31 on the ACTs and 2100 on the SAT, But after a while I learned why RCC is infact the Gateway to the Dream! On my first year I got to learn about these really good internships they offer, I mean I never would have imagined that I would get the chance to be a janitor at my local taco bell on the weekends from noon to 3 pm. This is a very competative school so you better be ready to work really hard if you want to go here. The only reason I actually got into this school is because i comprised an essay depicting the Fibonacci number sequence and how it relates to the movie "Super Troopers". Fortunatley for me, I am going to be transfering to Boston College so that I can be closer to home.

RCC was a settlement school for me, eitherQuite BrightSocial Work
RCC was a settlement school for me, either take a semester off or go to a community college. Honestly, I don't really like the school. Everytime I want to speak to an advisor I'm not getting the help or support that I'm looking for. The person in charge of the transfer department was on a vacation or some sort and I had to wait a week before I could get in touch with her. Parking is 60/40. There will be parking available once in a while close to the entrance while most of the time you'll have to park further then walk to the school. The professors seem knowledgeable while sometimes they don't even seem to know what they're talking about. I'm trying to transfer out to go to Salem State but I will probably have to wait "another week".

The staff are notBrightAccounting
The staff are not respectful of one another and do absolutely NOTHING, which means horrible service to all students. Things are never done correctly and on a timely manner, and NO ONE does anything to change this. Secretaries are very rude to students, it's like a coffee shop not a college!
