Attending Rock Valley College was one of the best and smartest decisions I've made. I saved myself so much money taking my general education classes here, I only wish I had figured out what I wanted to do during my time there so I could of taken as much classes as possible towards my degree. The faculty and staff are all very friendly and helpful. All the professors I've had have been passionate about what they teach and that comes across in the classroom and in their interactions with students. The campus is very spacious, clean, and beautiful. I miss this school so much! I wish it was four-year college instead of just a 2-year!
Review Rock Valley College
My overall experience at Rock Valley College is pretty pleasant. The education is great, the teachers really do care about your success in the classroom, and the best is that it's affordable! Only thing that I don't really like about Rock valley is that it's kind of difficult to make friends there. The majority of people just attend class and then go home to do homework or go to work. That's when I wish that there were more social interactions at the campus, but it's a community college so I'm not too knit picky on that. Overall I believe that Rock valley is a great school that provides a great education and possess awesome teachers and also has a very nice campus that's easy to maneuver around too!
When I first started at Rock Valley College, I was anxious. After meeting my professors and getting used to the atmosphere, I felt like I was home. Going to school here was a wonderful choice. At first, I was afraid I would not like attending college. After my first two weeks, I was happier than I had been in years. The professors are easy going and extremely helpful along with the rest of the staff. The student body was engaged and well informed. I would highly recommend Rock Valley College to all prospective students who wish to further their education or possibly even try to find something new.
