Rock Valley College Reviews
I love Rock Valley Collage, it is a great school, filled with hungry students, and great professors. It is a great way to earn an associate's degree that is way cheaper than starting at a university. They have decent sports teams as well, and a great workout phacility. Great student center, and offer a variety of different courses and trades for people to learn. They have a great police department that takes great care of the campus, and friendly police officers ready to help anyone in need. I would really recommend it to anyone in the local Rockford area!
The campus and professors are fantastic! The scenery is stunning. I have been happy with all my classes etc... There are numerous opportunities for growth, both personally and communally. The value, for the price you pay, is enormous.
My experience at Rock Valley College is way beyond phenomenal. Being a student their makes me feel like I can accomplish my dreams. I am majoring in nursing and before I attending Rock Valley I thought it was going to be impossible! Nothing is impossible as long as you set your mind to it. Rock Valley staff and students motivate me to do my best everyday! I would not have wanted to attend any other community college other than Rock Valley.
