Raritan Valley Community College Reviews

Raritan Valley Community College is a great institution with few flaws. The college offers a variety of events, learning opportunities, clubs, sports and all at lower costs than 4 year institutions. The campus is not big so traversing it is quite easy and buildings and areas are well labeled so it is hard not to find where your class will be. Parking on the other hand is a problem, those spaces closest to the college fill up quickly and while is has other places for you to park they are at least a five minute or so walk away from the campus which makes it difficult with rain, snow, excessive heat etc. you. The library is the optimal area to study with a vast collection of books and resources. Also the college offers Windows which can be downloaded for free! Take advantage, it can cost upwards of 200 dollars otherwise!
Review Raritan Valley Community College
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!
RVCC is absolutely the best community college in NJ. Raritan Valley is solely based on diversity. RVCC preserves all cultures and religions while focusing on each student's academic goals. I have been exposed to classmates of many different cultures, and every time I am able to learn from them. The college's faculty main goal is to help you achieve your goals. The college offers small classes with a maximum of 40 students per class. This gives the students the opportunity to ask questions and easily communicate with the professor during and after each lecture. Also, the professors at RVCC are willing to work with the students at all costs and accommodate them, as they understand that most of the students face life's unexpected struggles that may take away from the time they would originally dedicate to studying. Both the staff and students are RVCC care for each other and work as a team to make sure that students are going after their dreams.
