Connect to the RSC Community

Connecting to the community is an integral part of the college experience. Rio Salado College students have several options that help them to stay up to date with college news, network with other students, and interact with the extended RSC community.

Rio Lounge- The RioLounge online social network is exclusively for RSC students. In addition to helpful articles and college news, RioLounge provides an opportunity to buy and sell books, participate in student led discussion groups, and meet other online students who share the same goals. Students can access RioLounge by clicking a link in the services tab of RioLearn.

Student Organizations- RSC students are also encouraged to participate in sanctioned student groups like Phi Theta Kappa, Student Public Policy Forum (SPPF), and Honors. Additional student groups available through the Maricopa Community College District include the Maricopa Association of Chicanos in Higher Education (MACHE) and the Asian Pacific Islander Association (APIA).
Rio Community News and Events- Find student success stories, community events and academic resources here on RioNews, or visit the RSC Newsroom for press releases, news coverage about the college and community outreach information.

Public Social Networks - RSC supports community interaction through a variety of social media channels. The entire RSC community is encouraged to participate in conversations on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. RSC can also be found on YouTube, Reddit, and Flickr.

Never discuss or share confidential information such as your student number or social security number on any social networking site or on Rio Lounge.
