Student Body: There is a lot of diversity between traditional and non-traditional students. Everyone seems to be welcoming with each class I have taken so far.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I have taken several online courses and all have been good. The most recent had a chatroom once a week to discuss what we were learning and I really enjoyed it. It helped me feel more connected to students even though I wan't in a "classroom" setting.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: The school has a lot of green areas like outdoor aesthetics that make the campus look appealing.

Campus Resources: The resources are available at hours that are mostly accommodating every person's schedule. The student center also has good hours to accommodate all schedules.

Academic Experience: I think that the workload is manageable if you talk with your counselor and set goals that are realistic.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: The professors are good to work with and are willing to help you if you need it. Again the curriculum is manageable as long as you follow a guideline of school workload. The registration process is easy to follow.

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think going to school has been pretty affordable. The financial aid department is helpful and willing to assist you in finding alternative forms of payments such as scholarships, grants and things like that.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been good so far. I've taken both online and campus classes and both have been good for me.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I haven't pursued post-grad options at my school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I used a hybrid course for astronomy which was difficult to learn on your own. If you plan on doing online/hybrid course, make sure it is a subject you can handle.

Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I never really used the career services.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I chose to get involved which made my experience more enjoyable. I liked my teachers and benefited from their classes. It gave me a chance to mature before moving out on my own to a four-year university.

Academic Experience: They offer a few courses within marketing/advertising but not a wide range of it. Plus only one professor teaches them so they have to work classes around his schedule.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: There are a wide range of classes and each department has their favorite professors. As far as class registration, it is important for you to get your classes right away, especially the popular classes. It goes by priority registration, but can still lock up at points.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Going through financial aid office was not the most pleasant experience. They are not always clear as to the steps needed to receive loans, grants. The only worthy financial aid is the scholarship process, which straight-forward. The people who run the office are also not the most friendly or helpful. You feel like you are running around in circles with them.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: Some of the students tried hard to get involved to make the most out of their experience. Others just wanted to take their classes and get out there as soon as possible

Overall Experience: My only "favorite" experience is my reading class. The students are great and so is the instructor. She is AWESOME. I look forward to class every day. However, it is almost impossible getting anything done with the office staff. The hours are very inconvenient along with the book store. I am not an online shopper so taking time off of work to go to the campus is a pain.

College Freshman

Academic Experience: I haven't started any classes for my major yet.

Academic Experience: So far, I have taken three classes at RVC. My first instructor for my first math class was great. Very knowledgable and friendly and showed great attention to her students. My second math teacher showed hardly any interest and getting in touch with him was useless. Halfway through the semester he disabled his email and there was no way of getting in touch with him. It's not like he ever responded to half of the students that emailed him either. All I can say about my reading instructor is she deserves the teacher of the month every month for every year she is a teacher.

College Freshman

Online Courses: I haven' taken any online courses.

College Freshman

Facilities: I haven't visited any other school campuses.
