Detailed Ratings

Raritan Valley Community College shouldn't even be identified as a community college. I believe that my college equally ranks or exceeds the level of difficulty of a four year university. The majority of the population assumes that community colleges are for people who don't strive to achieve much. Before attending community college, I was a student at a preparatory school, and the people there generally had nothing great to say about community colleges, admittedly I was one of them. But after attending RVCC for a year, I found that was not true. There is an abundance of high achieving students here which is very motivating. If I were to give a tip for prospective students, I'd say don't let the title of "community college" scare you. Here, you'll find great academics and hardworking people that make RVCC one of the top community colleges in the nation. The staff is friendly, and always willing to help. The students are very welcoming and don't judge you based on race, appearance, or sexual orientation. The atmosphere is very comfortable.
