What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rock Valley College has amazing facilities. The Jacobs center (the science building) is updated and modern. The tuition is really reasonably for the education you are receiving here. The professors genuinely care about their students succeeding. Also I always feel safe on campus especially because we have our own police on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rock Valley College is a good place if you want to save a bit of money compared to larger universities. If you do your research and pick good professors then your experience should be great - as there are some really exceptional people here. Although most of the people seem to want to go in, attend class, and leave (most people attending have families and jobs to attend).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Rock Vally has been my least favorite college thus far. Being a military veteran, I expected more from them in supporting those who have served by at least having someone on campus knowledgable on the GI bill... I will no longer be attending Rock Valley College due to their incompetence and lack of resources for students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've had a good time at Rock Valley, it's an affordable starting place for those who do not know what they wish to study and get gen-eds done before moving on wards and upwards. That being said it's also useful for students wanting to explore various fields and get a leg up before graduating high school. It's not the top of the top, but for the level of education you can't beat the price.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Over all it is a pretty good school. A good place to go to figure out what you want to do and take different classes. They have many groups to be a part of and clubs. The food is pretty good. They have a good variety of food to chose from. Most of the professors are helpful and easy to talk to about any issues you may have.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that rock valley is a great and affordable community college with delivers a great education to all students. Everything is in close proximity to each other, teachers are pretty available to you, class sizes average around 35, and there's an activity for someone to do or join.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion about Rock Valley College is that its a very good place to attend. I am currently enrolled at this college and it's just right for me. I feel safe here no matter what time it is, also it is very easy to get help from the teachers. This college offers dorms for students that are not from Rockford.

RVC is a great place to start off. All the professors I've met have been really nice and willing to help. There are lots of things happening so it's easy to get involved with the school and have fun. Just about every resource you could need is available and it's a really nice campus.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The unique thing about Rock Valley Colege is the afforadabilty of classes that transfer to nearly every university. I had intially transfered to a four year university at the junior level of my school of choice accepting classes both in general education and performing arts without having to retake a single class. Affordabilty of a quality education that saves time and money is what I remember.

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

Assuming I could speak to my high-school-self, I would tell myself to write more. Writing was a category like music, sports, and the arts - where I believed one either had a gift or they did not. I believe writing had a glass-ceiling of potential that could not be surpassed without naturaly gifting. I believed that only the well-spoken would be heard and that only their voices mattered, so there was no use applying myself there. But, that was a lie. No one knew my vocabulary would tripple in college. I would soon own hundreds of books in multiple subjects and learn things that would improve my life and help others succeed in areas where I taught them. The girl that was always passed over in high school worked hard and found ways to teach the unteachable and reach the unreachable. What did not work for her she found could help others and identify with those who struggled in areas those with natural abilities could not relate. Writing is a process and it will always need improvement. Writers make multiple drafts and edit their ideas multiple times. But, it is worth it to write.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The person that wants to attend a school where they can skip class and make up for missed days/work, with extra credit, should attend another school. Many professors could potentially round a grade for one with perfect attendance, while nearly flunking someone with A+ course work who misses a handful of classes. It is rare to get extra credit, and most proffers in colleges never offer it. If you donnot read ad follow the syllabus, donnot expect to pass with a good grade. College is more than listening and turning in work.
