"The RC has been amazing for me!
One of the things that I've enjoyed most about coming from Bridge to the RC is the ability to still build a close relationship with my professors. The professors' offices are in the RC so it was fairly easy to meet them often and get to know them really well. As well, the classes are quite small so it was a lot easier to befriend people in my RC classes. As for the language component of the RC, I thought it was challenging but extremely enjoyable. I could see myself learning and retaining so much at a very fast pace with the well designed structure of the RC language program."
