Raritan Valley Community College Reviews
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!
RVCC provides opportunity to students to completely change their lives, whether that be a fresh start at a GPA, or the chance to gain an associates or a certificate, or just a new start for adults later in life. The academics are extremely underrated, you have adjunct professors coming from schools like Montclair, providing the same education they would there at a fraction of the cost. Student life however, is entirely what you make of it. Every Tuesday and Thursday from 1:00-2:20, we have college hour where all the clubs typically get together and have their meetings. We also have some really fun events like our Fall and Spring picnics! If you're unsure on where you want to spend the next year or two, I strongly suggest RVCC. :)
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!
