On behalf of the Board of Trustees, our outstanding faculty and staff, and the entire college family, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Reading Area Community College.
Whether you join us as a new or returning student, seeking a degree or certificate, or to enrich your life or career through our many short-term programs, all of our energy is devoted to your success in meeting those goals. Many of our dedicated professors, advisors, and financial aid professionals, as well as myself, are community college alumni. We have walked the same path you will, and we are here to guide you as you manage your busy life, attend classes, and study in our state-of-the art laboratories, smart classrooms, and well-resourced library.
I am proud of RACC's outstanding reputation for preparing students to enter into their careers or continue on to earn their bachelor's degrees. If you are a RACC graduate, you have many options in seamlessly transferring your associate degree to regional as well as nationally recognized four-year institutions such as Kutztown University, Bloomsburg University, Temple University, Pennsylvania State University, Elizabethtown College, DeSales University, Albright College, and Alvernia University. If you plan to immediately find employment with your certificate, diploma, or associate degree, RACC can help you connect with leading employers in Berks County's healthcare and manufacturing industries.
Above all, each of us at RACC is committed to you, the individual student and your success. We are the "community's college" devoted to student achievement and the enrichment of our community. We look forward to meeting you and making your experience at RACC rewarding and satisfying.
All the very best,
Susan Looney, J.D., Ed.D.
