        Begin Your Academic Journey at Riverside City CollegeAs a returning student, the most important thing about Riverside City College is the level of support you receive in order to succeed. My experience started with the Outreach department; they showed me how to obtain the student aid available to me. Next were the amazing instructors who made a difference in my education: Professor Burchett (Biology), Professor Ishihara (Business), Dr. Casolari (Economics), and Dr. Mendoza (Math). Fulfill as many transferable units as you can so that you can save money on the next step.... a University. Never be a minimalist - strive for an A even if you never earn one. Scholarships really pay off, so never under-perform. I worked hard at RCC, and I earned my way through to a CSUSB degree. So can you!
