    raritan valley is a community college, for five classes it is about $7,000. the professors are extremely educated in their fields. most of the classes transfer easily to a four year college. rvcc is connected to kean and rutgers university. with all of the clubs and free extracurricular activities one can do at rv it is great for everyone whether they are just starting their higher education or wanting to go back to college and take a couple of classes.

    Top-notch education from some very impressive, inspirational and well-educated mentors. Our tuition is about $2800 per semester for five classes, and that gets you a lot. Student Life does a good amount of events each semester that can be a lot of fun. Clubs and organizations on campus teach so much about leadership and commUNITY! I've learned so much about myself from RV and made some great friends, plus learned so much from the professors. For less than $6,000 per year you can't beat the experience and the education, just TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT!

    There is also a great theater program at the college that I am a part of. I am a dancer at the college. I have danced since I was 3 years old and I have become very passionate about it. Every semester we have a performance to show everybody what we have learned and worked so hard on all semester and I invite all of my friends to come and watch me and we make a big deal out of it. It's a wonderful experience. There's so much you could do at this school and I truly feel capable of everything and anything because of this school. I know I am going to be successful because this school offers so much help and the professors genuinely care about their students and want them to succeed. The classes are filled with about 20 students which is great because you get more individual attention from your professors. The professors are very passionate about what they do and you can even go to this school and take Rutgers classes at Raritan and graduate with a Bachelor's Degree from Rutgers! It's great! I could just go on and on about how much I love this school.

    Going to RVCC was the best optinon that I could have chosen. My professors we all sufficently qualified in their fields and most had personal experiences to reflect on. You will recieve more than an education at RV, but an internal journey of self awareness and discovery, which is priceless.

    This is a really inexpensive community school that will save you a lot of money that you will need to spend on graduate school.
