Raritan Valley Community College Reviews

I really like RVCC because it allowed me to have an easier transition to college. Many of the professors are kind and caring, and they really value my education. I feel really comfortable to be there! I am apart of the Honors College, which has been a wonderful experience. We go on trips as a group, and it helped me to get to know people and make friends! I appreciate that it is close knit and everyone is caring towards others. RVCC encourages its students to get involved, and join clubs, which as a two year institute, is a bit hard to do. So they offer a college hour two days a week where for an hour and twenty minutes, no classes are offered and it dedicated to clubs and events happening on campus. I got involved with the Dance Club which has been so much fun! I am in charge of emails to other groups and I get in interact with people in free dance classes hosted by other students and guest teachers.

Raritan Valley Community College is a great choice for anyone looking to further their education. I started there because I wasn't sure what field of study I wanted to pursue, and ended up deciding on Nursing. They have a fantastic nursing program that I am currently enrolled in that allows you to obtain your RN and start a career. All the professors I have had so far are very knowledgeable and passionate about teaching. The campus is clean and offers many various resources. Additionally, there are many great sports, clubs and honors societies to get involved in. They offer many classes that any 4 year college would, making this a great school to go to in order to obtain a higher education for a fraction of the cost of a 4 year college. For a community college, RVCC has truly come a long way and now offers many great opportunities; there is something there for everyone!
Raritan Valley Community College is definitely worth attending! I am an out of county student and people would always criticize me for choosing RVCC instead of other community colleges near me. However, it is a very good college. The advisors are great, if you go to them they really try and help get your degree as fast as possible. In addition, the professors are great! Almost every professor knows exactly what he/she is teaching and they care about you and help you pass each class with a high grade. Also, the environment is great, it is diverse and the students are overall friendly. There are many clubs you can join to keep you engaged and that can help you meet other students with your same interests. If you choose Raritan Valley Community college you will not regret it!
