Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Raritan Valley is a well known community college in the area with a large array of majors available. The school even offers four year programs, has many transfer opportunities, and works closely with its students to help them move forward with their education.

The classes offered by the school appealed to me, the other local community didn?t offer the same art classes I wanted to take as RVCC does.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I was able to go back in time and have a conversation with my senior self I would advise myself to not jump into decisions, to dapple in different classes before getting too caught up in one major. I would also tell myself to take everything one day at a time, to ask for help when needed, and to have fun but to keep focus. I would also tell myself to make friends, remember that school comes first, and that homework is necessary. I would also remind myself to just do my best and to take the bad with the good, that in the end it will be okay.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Going to college is a rite of passage from adolescence to adulthood. It's probably the best time to explore new subjects that might interest you because once you start working and have a family you probably won't have the time to do it. You might be tempted to hurry your way through college so that you can begin to earn money more quickly, but you should take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expand your mind in ways you haven't done before. You're going to meet new friends and you might be tempted to spend more time socializing than you should. Try to keep a good balance, and remember that your job right now is to learn as much as you can. Maybe you need to work while you're in school to support yourself. If that's the case, be careful that you don't burn out. It's OK to take a year or two more to graduate. Better to do that than to settle for less than the best work you're capable of because you've stretched yourself too thin.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

If you're looking for a liberal arts type of education this is probably not the best school for you.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Never be afraid to get involved. Involving yourself in school, the community, etc. will only help you build skills, experience new things, and meet new people. This is what life is all about. Always push yourself, for there is no limit. College is not a scary place. It is a place where you are able to start fresh, build character, and be everything you can be. Do not let one moment go by that you feel you will regret. Take chances. You may tell yourself that it is not worth it in the end, but how will you know if you never try. There is no such thing as "messing up", however, there is such a thing called "learning from mistakes and not allowing them to bring you down". You will only be as great as your make yourself. Knowing this now, walk into college your first day with every bit of confidence. You deserve it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

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!
