Reynolds has been here for me to provide a safe place to study, a faculty that cares, and a place for me to grow not only as a student but as a person. I know that through Reynolds my educational goals are not only possible, but probable. – Brittany S. Thank you Reynolds for providing me with a keen sense of academic standards, personal growth, community and a positive environment. – Justin B. Reynolds is not just a stepping-stone, in my story; Reynolds is the key. – Emily Z. Most colleges aren’t like Reynolds. Reynolds Community College was, when I enrolled, the only program in the state which offered a full distance learning option to get my associate’s degree in early childhood development. It was a no brainer where I wanted to go. – Rachel M.
