New River Community College Reviews
I loved how it was the bridge between high school and university! The professors are amazing and they truly put you first. Beautiful area. I felt like I could succeed. I've met some wonderful people and am somewhat sad to leave. However, I know I am more prepared for my future. I have learned so much and become a better student because of it!
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 had an ok time at New River Community college, most of the teachers are great!! But I had trouble finding the staff workers that actually wanted to help me out with my future plans, it was more try to learn how to do it yourself. There finicial aid hotline is also a MESS I got a couple people on the line that were not intrested in helping you out at all, I felt like an inconvenience to them.
Good teachers, but the administration is poor. The return on investment is ok, too much money for a community college.
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.
I am so thankful that I chose to attend New River Community College. I have have a great experience here. As I have gone through my past two years of education here, I have been very unsure of what I have wanted to do. New River has allowed me to test out so many options, as well as provided me with a great counselor to assist me along the way. I am also very pleased with the locations of this college seeing as there are two. These include the main campus and the "Mall Site," I mostly attend the mall site. There is not much I would change about this school at all.
New River is a WONDERFUL school, the teachers are always willing to help and extend their knowledge past a test. Great starter school with a warm and inviting environment.
The professors and equipment are all amazing. Especially for where I live, it's only $2,000 a semester which is amazing especially when almost every college in Virginia will do a guaranteed acceptance agreement. Would recommend to anyone
I love the class sizes at New River Community College. The professors and all the staff are very nice and they will help you if you ask.
While some classes at New River Community College are a joke, others are very informative. It is really what you make out of it. If you go into it with the mindset that you want to learn something new or gain a new skill, you will.
My classes are pretty much all in the same day which is great because I can work both of my jobs in my free time and do homework on my free days as well.
The online courses are easy to understand and the professors make it easy to chat with them if you need help.
The professors always make time to help you with anything and really care about our education and success.
This degree will lead me to big things in my life and I think it will help me to be very successful.
It is a lot of hard work and takes a lot of time and effort but the end result will be worth it.
I love New River and am glad I started here. It has really helped me to achieve my goals.
