2 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: I work really hard and I feel like I never get any financial support. It' a real pain.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: I only bonded with one person during my college career, and I believe myself to be extremely outgoing

5 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I lovvvee the online courses! I'm so busy and otherwise I wouldn't have been able to graduate on time.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I don't think there is much opportunity for a General Study degree like myself, except to transfer

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I first tried engineering, and it was terrible! The classes at New River almost feel like they are designed to weed out the weak. Once I changed my major to General Studies though, everything was a breeze.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Some of the classes have nothing to do with my intended major, which seems like a waste of time

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: I work 60 hours a week, so having so many online classes was very valuable to me.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: I never found anything going on to be too extremely interesting, therefore I never paid much attention to it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: I mostly attended the mall site, where computers were always available and printing was free!

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The free tutoring available to students was very helpful!

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: If you are willing to put effort in, the professors will be willing to help you. Also, beautiful campus!

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: easy to get what you want

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoyed my time here and was able to grow as a person, but I'm not entirely sure I made the best decision possible.

2 College Sophomore

Career Services: Community Colleges don't have post-grad services, silly.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The way the testing was set up made it very difficult for me to give my best effort in a subject a love.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Alot of the professors here are very nice! They tend to just hand you work and think you already know how to do it. When you ask for help they are there to a certain extent. I just wish they could be more active with students.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body at my school has many different ethnic people they accept probably everybody to get their prerequisite classes out of the way. Mainly people interact well but lots of goofing off and not many serious people it seems like.

College Junior

Career Services: Honestly I don't know anything about any of those areas.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I really enjoy the classes I have to take for my degree, they're all extremely interesting to me and I'm glad I decided to pursue this path. I'm not taking quite as many credits as what I'll need to take if I want to graduate on time, I feel like the full course load is a little hefty. I enjoy my teachers very much, they're very involved with the students and are extremely helpful. All of my teachers come across as very passionate about the subjects they teach. My last two semesters I will have an internship which I am extremely excited about. It just seems to be that the professors really want to see their students succeed and are willing to go that extra mile so that they are successful.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: There are two campuses, one in Dublin and one at the mall In Christiansburg. I attend the Christiansburg campus because it is closest to home. There is no common area for students to socialize so I haven't really met many of my peers.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financial aid is available and relatively easily obtained, however the process in which to begin receiving financial aid is kind of confusing.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The student center at New River has hosted many different events. There are has been live music along with comedians, personnel who give tutorials along with motivational speakers. The areas has many vending machines and a few times a week the different athletic and academic clubs provide lunch to help raise money for their program and the college.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are tons of different programs that are available there. They have bulletin boards throughout the campus where people can arrange various babysitting services, jobs, items for sale, car pooling groups, even lost and found pets. The college is very hands on with their community and there are many different volunteer opportunities.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The diversity at New River is generally larger compared to other community colleges I have visited. A lot of the students are here on school visas and plan to transfer to Tech or Radford. New River is great in the aspect of how they try and help the various ethnic groups understand and learn everything that they need to know to transfer.
