Raritan Valley is a great college for those who are uncertain upon choosing a major. In addition, it's a great transition from High School to a normal college life. Students don't have dorms, however the school provides comfortable student lounges that's similar towards a dorm. The campus itself is clean, small, and very comfortable for walking. The professors have tons of personality as well as a huge knowledge upon their field of teaching. There's no parties there except for the ones provided by the school. Lastly, this school is one of the best community colleges in the country!
Review Raritan Valley Community College
The professors at RVCC care about their students, they want each and every single one to succeed. I loved creating strong relationships with my professors, it helped me learn and understand the criteria so much better and I wasn't afraid to ask for help or ask questions. I was not just a number to the professors, I was a student whom they wanted to educate. There is a diversity of students who want to learn and earn a degree to start their lives, whether that be transfer to another school or start working, everyone is motivated and wants to succeed. There is an Academic Support Center where you can get help with homework, ask questions for an upcoming test, or even have an English major edit a paper for you. I took full advantage of the Academic Support Center to help better myself and my grades, its an awesome opportunity which is available to everyone! RVCC has Phi Theta Kappa, an honors society, and if you have above a 3.5 GPA you are invited to join. PTK is a large part of RVCC and is always pushing its members to get involved and make the best of their experience at the community college. Being a member, I have volunteered at different organizations and learned a lot about myself and others by helping and becoming part of my community. RVCC has many opportunities to get involved and form relationships with peers around you, and not to forget is one of the highest ranked community college in the nation!
I have taken 3 online courses and they have been very influential to my education. By allowing me to log onto the online classroom whenever I had time in my schedule was extremely helpful especially when trying to juggle work and my other classes. It allowed me to create an ethical work structure and time management skills with assignments due at specific times on a specific day. The workload varied for different courses, however was a manageable amount. In my online music class part of my final was to go to a Rutgers concert and take notes along with write a paper on the performance. I really enjoyed how my professor gave us a hands on project even though it was an online class. All of the professors I had for my online classes were very good at communicating through email and I did not have a problem with having my questions answered at all!
