New River is a great school and the best part of it is how stunning the campus looks. It's campus is surronded by open grass fields on one side, a forest on another side, and amazing green technology like solar panels and a wind turbine. As you drive though the old fashion town to get to the campus it is almost like a journey on a time machine. The town has wall murals reading "Fresh Coca-Cola! 5 cents!" painted on its stores, but not two miles down the road is a solar array! It is an amazing place.
The school has an incredible curriculum, and at an amazing price. For most majors, it makes remarkable sense to go here first before a four year school, especially if you are still figuring out what you want to do in life.
The teachers are very hands on and always available.
