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!

Rock Valley College has great teachers and is a beautiful campus. It is highly recommendable! Beautiful buildings, too.
I am attending Rock Valley as part of the Running Start Program for high schoolers, and so far it has been fantastic. The workload is lighter, I'm in class only a couple hours a day, and the campus is nice. There are a lot of fun things constantly put on by different organizations, and overall I have really enjoyed it. If you got As and Bs in high school, you will have no problem getting them here. The professors are all pretty cool too. Very nice for a community college.
