What is your overall opinion of this school?

I can say without a doubt that Raritan Valley Community College was a great way to start off my college career. It might be a small community college but if you really get yourself involved, you can meet a lot of great people here and you will have a blast. One of the top things I loved about this school was that they would bring inspirational leaders to speak to students and if you got to know them personally, it builds a lot of personal connections and of course, networking with a lot more people outside of the school. The staff are always so friendly and cheery, the professors are great and the advisers are really understanding if you're having trouble with classes or even need help choosing your classes. The variety of clubs and sports were good, as well, but some people just look down upon everything just because it's not everyone's #1 school they would have loved to gone to and it really limits what students get involved with but overall, RVCC is great if you make it great, I would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to start their college career off right without a problem!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is a good educational institution that offers many services both well known and not. There is never a shortage of events, clubs, sports events to attend and has many areas for students to both relax and study in. The food is decent, pizza, chicken tenders, deli sandwich's and a everyday special. The library is a good place to study and has a large collection of books. The school is in the process of updating itself, both technologically and physically, it just expanded upon its science department and is now constructing an entire new building. The only two downsides are that the parking can be difficult and some of the professors, only a minority, do not care for their jobs or the students and have been known to be curt. Otherwise 80% of the professors are great and or decent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I can honestly say I loved all my years at RVCC. The campus is safe, fun, and the teachers and people around to help you honestly care. Most of the professors are fun and understanding when it comes to college life, which helps the transitioning period from high school to college. I would, and have, recommend this school to anyone considering it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have zero regrets attending RVCC. It's a great foundation for those who are planning to transfer, such as myself. There are plenty of resources that support students in different ways. The curriculum is excellent as well as the professors, especially in the arts department. I have improved a lot and plan on using what I learned at a four-year institution.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, for a community college, it's not too bad. We get a lot of incoming students from the local high schools, which can sometimes make a class feel young--like the 13th grade. With that in mind, also consider that only the introductory classes tend to have these students, making it a bit more challenging once your classes become more focused. The food in the cafeteria is not too bad, and they actually offer balanced hot meals for lunch for around $5 and change. There is no housing on campus because it's a community college. Between that and being community-supported, the pricing for tuition stays quite low, which makes it a great place for anyone in the area to start their higher education. I started here because I didn't know what I wanted to study straight out of high school, and this is a great place to start searching for your academic interests.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

"It's like the 13th grade." This is a familiar saying for high school seniors that do not decide to attend Raritan Valley Community College. However, most students like me are more than grateful to attend this nationally ranked community college in New Jersey. RVCC has many facilities and highly respected professors eager to help students in anyway possible. And even though RVCC is a commuter college, we still have similar student involvement like any big state university. I am proud to attend "the 13th grade" at RVCC!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.
