Academics Rating

Although the class sizes were large at times, the professors were generally very helpful and gave a considerable amount of work. However, there are honors courses at this college, that I have had experience with and it is implied that a heavier workload comes with an honors course, but, I found it to be very doable. Again, the professors were happy to help, and always available in person, through phone, or through email to answer any questions. I don't have any complaints about the academics. My favorite course at RVCC was Honors English Composition II. I felt that I really had a connection with my peers as well as my teacher. Our classes were discussion based, seeing that we sat in a circle for all of the classes. It's great to hear the opinions of others, and see how you can relate your opinion to theirs to find some sort of common ground. I found that my analytical and writing skills greatly improved because of the comfortable and encouraging atmosphere of the class.
