River Valley Community College Reviews

When I started taking classes with RVCC, every advisor I spoke to went above and beyond in helping me to succeed and they still are. When I struggle with financial, academic or home issues, each advisor I talked to was able to help me in some way. Most of my professors have been kind, understanding and made it their number one goal to help me achieve not only high grades but the skills I need as well.

I also appreciate that the teacher-student ratio is very well balanced. It is much easier to learn and to ask questions when there are only ten other students beside you. Each teacher (in my experience) has fully and completely answered any and all questions I’ve had and in good depth as well.

The only issue I have run into with RVCC is the financial aid department, as I do think they need to be a little more organized but they have proven to be helpful in one way or another especially in terms of reassurance and other options.

My school is very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The advisors and professors are approachable. A lot of the students are returning adult learners which makes the environment calmer. Everyone is focused on their studies and there is less drama. I am in my second year of the nursing program and while there have been many changes in administration, the school runs smoothly and seems to be thriving. I am very proud of to be attending RVCC.
This school is composed of many different individuals of all ages and walks of life. We have a Student Government Association that works to bring the student body together in student activities, community participation, and to listen to the ideas, questions, concerns of all students. The faculty and staff are very involved in each student's experience and are always available to talk to. RVCC will transform your life and bring you to your goals with hard work and dedication. My life has become so much more enriched over the past year since I have been attending this college. Opportunities to envision and design your future.
