The classes, in general, are superb... that is if you steer clear from the Spanish department and be wary of the psychology department. The course load is fairly challenging and, overall, interesting. The English department is excellent along with the Film, Philosophy, and Science departments. Recommended above most other Community Colleges, but be wary.
They don't exactly offer everything one would want when attending college, in terms of majors, but it's positively a good place to start. You'll get a decent education at a cheap price, and after you can transfer to a university. Credits from Raritan Valley can be transferred to very many other colleges and universities. A year or two at RVCC will save you a great deal of money on your education. I'd suggest that any student considering attending RVCC should first think about where they want to end up after. Look into your major, and be sure that the college you'll go to after accepts credits from RVCC. Most of the teachers are pleasant, and the majority of the classes run smaller. There are several places aroud for college-goers to find work, including many spots on-campus. Plenty of groups to get involved, and plenty of fun places nearby. I would recommend RVCC.
