#RioSaladoCollege40th Tribute to Students!

Collage of photos featuring graduates at the 2018 commencement ceremony.

Today we take pause to pay tribute to the driving force behind our 40-year history-- students! 

We applaud your dedication and perseverance. It has been a great honor to be of service to you through the years.

We hope this 40th anniversary commemorative video tribute to the #RioGrad Class of 2018 inspires you to continue your educational journey-- and to encourage others to join you!

Since 1978, Rio Salado College has had the privilege of serving more than 665,000 students and has awarded nearly 100,500 degrees and certificates.
“As graduates you truly know what it means to succeed. You have experienced the effort that success requires…. Success is not a task, which anyone ever completes. Success is an attitude and it is a process. It is an indication that you have made a choice to make the most of yourself and to develop your potential to the fullest.” -- Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board Vice President Linda Thor.
