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!

Rock Valley College was always my first option in what college I’d like to attend. It’s close to home, it’s a very nice and well-put college, it has the pathways and courses I’d like to take a part in to my future career being in the medical field, the staff is great, and I can go on! I’m excited to be a RVC Eagle in fall of 2018!
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!
