    I love the fact that Rio Hondo is a small college to be around, great diversity in student’s ethnicity background and great support from outreach programs. Having a small class gives you the opportunity to have a closer connection with your professors. Imagine taking a class in a large classroom where 130 students can fit at most. Well, this happens in almost every college, but not in Rio Hondo College! This will limit your distractions and the possibility of getting lost among all the students you have to compete with. Yes, you guessed right. You will have more time to worry about the tests and studying time than on how many are competing with you for a good grade. Having this said, the classes are more selective and smaller. Rio Hondo College is also very diverse with ethnicity backgrounds, which makes it even a more interesting place to meet people and to bond with. Rio Hondo also offers great support from staff to those who qualify. There are programs for the disabled, the low-income, nursing programs, and math and science majors. Pretty much help is in the college you would just have to look for it. There is even a program for free tutoring and free printing center.
