“There will be challenges and times when you get frustrated, or you feel that you've hit a brick wall. Know that there's support outside of class that you can rely on. Don't be ashamed to ask for help. I was a strong student, and I went to tutoring for help. There are qualified people who want to help you. Prepare for setbacks and don't get discouraged.”

“Researching different schools for a quick job change, RCC was the only place that was affordable, convenient and within proximity. My instructors were amazing teachers who not only taught me what I needed to know, but also helped me get a job on the last day of my internship.”

“None of my friends at four-year schools have met with the Mayor of Boston, or sat down with the Governor, or attended a board meeting. I get all of these opportunities, a challenging classroom environment, and lots of extracurricular activities for the price of $4,000 a semester. I also feel like my college is my home away from home—I know that everyone in the building is here to support me.”

The faculty, staff, and my fellow students made RCC the best place for me. I see RCC not just as a college, but a citadel where leaders are made.”
