The career connection center here at NRCC posts various job openings into our student e-mail accounts throughout the week. They also, have Internship options and listings of temporary jobs in the area for students that cannot work full-time. The college also offers volunteer work and work-study. I'm currently enrolled in work-study and do volunteer work for the blood drives here at NRCC.
Review New River Community College
I honestly was not extremely impressed with the school as a whole, due to several things. Lack of communication between campuses and inter-departmental communications seem to be lacking. However, it is my understanding that they are going through several changes in curriculum, professors, tutors, and other areas. I do think there are some outstanding professors that are employed by the college, one in particular whose 30+ year teaching experience and expertise is not being used to its full potential. He is only teaching part-time and has not even been approached to work as tutor, although they are in desperate need of tutors in all areas of study.
There isn't a big variety of classes offered here at NRCC but the classes that are offered have wonderful Instructors that are very experienced in the course, always very helpful and understanding. The work load is never overwhelming and there's so much help offered here at the college.
