    RVCC is the perfect place to begin your college academic career if you are not quite prepared for the atmosphere of a 4-year college, or if you struggled in high school and are looking for a fresh start! Both of which applied to me and RVCC has given me great confidence in my academic abilities while preparing me for a college atmosphere with its athletic programs and an impressively large campus. While some professors are meh, the staff here truly want you to succeed.

    Really amazing value for the price! RVCC has a highly talented English department, although I can't speak to the quality of other majors. I highly recommend joining the honors college and running for student council as these are, in my experience, the best and most efficient ways to get the most out of your time at RVCC
    So far I have had a great experience with this community college. My professors have all been very overqualified and have all been amazing. I have learned so much and I especially learned a bunch during quarantine. I am finishing up for my Associates and it has been a great time. I love the school and highly recommend it to all students who have financial troubles and who have to work full time while attending. Amazing school filled with amazing professors!
