There are a lot of extracurricular activities on campus and everyone is encouraged to get involved. The location is also in a safe area with lots of shops and restaurants close by.
Raritan Valley Community College is a great school. This is where you go to find yourself, choose a career path, and save a little money while doing so. The professors truly care about every student they teach, the food is amazing on campus, and there is always some event going on. I loved knowing I could pick my own schedule around my jobs and life. Plus, I always felt safe on campus. I would recommend all nearby High School Graduates, still finding themselves, to check out RVCC.
Raritan Valley Community College is a great starter school to jumpstart your educational career! It offers a variety of classes and that will help you get ahead when transferring to a 4 year school. There are so many clubs to get involved in as well! The campus has a nice layout and is easy to navigate. Staff and students are friendly and you can always ask for help. Overall, I am enjoying my time here so far and am looking forward to next semester!
I take part in the Honors College at Raritan Valley Community College and overall have a great time. We have multiple trips a semester, and attending community college has allowed me to continue at my current job and save up for when I transfer. RVCC has small class sizes which allows for less distractions, and allows me stay at home and spend more time with my family.

I would tell myself earnestly ,"It gets better than this." As a miserable high school senior, those words would have meant the world to me. I graduated high school with a terrible GPA and dreaded the community college it had doomed me to. If high school was a horrific holding pen filled with cruel kids, Raritan Valley Community College was someone opening the gate. The freedom of the classes, the different cultures, and the clean slate changed my life. I'm graduating this spring with a 3.7 GPA and new outlook on education in general. A member of Phi Theta Kappa, with good friends, and a dream of becoming a high school English teacher, I hope that someday I CAN have the chance to tell a kid like me, "It gets better than this."

Everyone is friendly and if you ask for help they will gladly help.
Raritan is best known for being another two years of high school. Everyone in high schooled described it that way, but I completely disagree. I have felt the classes and experiences I've had were MORE worthwhile than would have had at a four-year institution. Plus, it's about a quarter of the price.
I chose this school my senior year due to the fact that it was a community college and I would be saving a lot of money. If one chooses to attend this school you save money and will get a great education too. If your like me, you will be able to figure out your career path with the wide array of subject choices.
The tuition at Raritan Valley Community College is extremely low and the grade of teaching is very high. I brag often about my tuition compared to that of friends at larger colleges who often are paying two and three times more than my per-semester tuition.
It is a great Community College. There are a lot of opportunities to join clubs, sports, and trips to other universities. The classes are modern size, which I liked. Some teachers are difficult so it is a great idea to find out more about the teacher you are going to take.
Unmotivated slacker who did not do well in high school or was "forced" to come to RV after getting kicked out or otherwise stopped attending a four-year school.
This is accurate but only to agree. There is a diverse range of students, some of which are highly motivated, talented individuals who go on to schools like U Penn, Cornell and Colombia. Others end up dropping out.
A person attending this school should set high standards for themselves and reach for the stars. Your education is everything that you put into it yourself. You will be as successful and intelligent as you allow yourself to be!
Most days it's incredibly hard to find a parking spot during the afternoon hours . I've had to learn when I need to leave early just to have time for finding a spot close to the building my class is in , or if I'm forced to park far away, so I have time to trek to the opposite side of campus.
RVCC has a state-of-the-art campus that offers small class sizes and numerous programs for students wishing to gain the knowledge and skills necessary for today's job market.
Most of the teachers are great and are really there to help you and get amazing grades. Others, are hard.
The best thing about my school is that it is close to home and allows me flexibility with my schedule. I have two young children. The college has a day care . This allows me to put my four year old there whlie I take classes. This is a great feature because it has allowed me to get started on my degree while I am home with my kids. This is so important to be able to be a mother and be able to fulfill my dreams of becoming a nurse.
Commuting, I believe, was one of the worst things about the school. Its a community college so there is no housing plans. Many college students must take highways in order to get to this school if we dont beat the commuter traffic we get stuck in it.
If you're looking for a liberal arts type of education this is probably not the best school for you.
