Go to a large university and get aQuite BrightEnglish
Go to a large university and get a degree in a specific field that will prepare you for the working world. I ended up going back to school at Univ of MD to get another undergrad degree that actually helped me get a job. Since then I have also earned a MBA. RMC was a learning experience, met some lifelong friends there, but they did not offer the education I needed. My fault. I should have researched more. I really didn't have a career in mind when I was a student, and RMC didn't offer enough of a choice for me to even get an idea. My advice would be to know what you want to get out of college before you decide where to go.

Some people that complainSuper BrilliantPhysics
Some people that complain do not make the best of their college student. I'm a black female college student and I love R-MC. Although everyone is different, most people I have encountered and friendly and open.

I am a black student.Biology
I am a black student. I believe this school is horrible for minorities. First, the majority of the students are racists and the professors are condescending. Really, they don't teach. They expect you to know everything from day 1 and get angry with you because you don't. People act like affirmative action is the only way a minority could be at this school. The administration does nothing about drug abuse, however, if it's plagiarism they are ready to expel a student. My first year there over 20 students got alcohol poisoning and they were not suspended. Those students are underage as well. On campus, there is a high percentage rape of assault and drunk induced rapes. So, my advice to students who are looking at this school, if you are use to racism, use to people doing nothing about unsafe environments and pretty much learning on your own, this is the place for you.
