Having graduated over 20 years ago I found the prospect of going to college daunting. I was afraid and intimidated. I even brought a friend with me to enroll. I needn't have been concerned. The staff at NRCC were warm and welcoming. I was treated with respect and understanding. The advisors walked me through the process of applying and enrolling. I have completed my first semester with a 4.0 while working full-time! With the support of the staff I am succeeding and feel confident in my abilities.

I really loved New River Community college. They are veteran friendly, and the academic advisors are super helpful and great advice givers. Almost all the staff has a huge smile on their face to greet you with at the beginning of your day and it puts me in such a good mood even when I've had a rough day. The instructors are all super knowledgeable and happy to help you meet your needs to ensure good grades. My advisors were almost more excited for me than my parents when I started getting acceptance letters from four-year universities. The school is growing the facilities are constantly expanding to meet the requirements of whatever cutting-edge field interests you. It almost pains me to leave on to better things but it was overall a great experience. I do hate that there are no food options at either school on campus, sometimes the main campus calls food trucks to come by for students.
My experience at New River was one of the most challenging ones. My first semester, I overwhelmed myself with classes and wanted to drop out, being a lot more difficult than high school. New River's resources was the main reason that I kept going and pushed through, the tutoring center GREATLY helped me almost every semester I have been there. The professors also listened to em when I needed help, letting me come by during office hours to go over lessons again that I didn't understand, let me make-up and re-take tests, and they were even a great friend who I was excited to see everyday. The Advisers there also helped me! Anytime I had a question, they were there to answer it, and if they couldn't answer it, they would go through everybody they could until the answer was found and I am beyond thankful for them. If it wasn't for New River's resources, I don't know where I would be today! I am happy to say that I was a part of the New River Community College Family.
