5 College Junior

Career Services: there are advisors that come here from different colleges to give information about transferring and what courses they have to offer or if you can further your degree at their college. I haven't had the time to look into transferring to a four year college. I'm still undecided.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The value of your degree is how much you put into it. Your Instructor and student advisor is always willing to help any way they can and always point you in the right direction.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There isn't a big variety of classes offered here at NRCC but the classes that are offered have wonderful Instructors that are very experienced in the course, always very helpful and understanding. The work load is never overwhelming and there's so much help offered here at the college.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I believe the flexibility with my courses have always worked out pretty good. I only had to change my schedule at work one time in the three semesters I been here. The college offers day & evening classes and on-line classes to work with your schedule.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I have never had problems with on-line courses. The Instructors get back to me promptly if I have any questions. The work load is not over whelming and there is a lot of tutoring help at the college and some Instructors post help links in our class syllabus. If you need to meet with your Instructor, you can either e-mail, call, or or Instant message them to set up a date and time.

5 College Junior

Career Services: The career connection center here at NRCC posts various job openings into our student e-mail accounts throughout the week. They also, have Internship options and listings of temporary jobs in the area for students that cannot work full-time. The college also offers volunteer work and work-study. I'm currently enrolled in work-study and do volunteer work for the blood drives here at NRCC.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: So far I have completed the Internship. I've earned work-study and have joined the Honor society at our school. You do get recognized you for all your hard work. They post job openings in our area every week and they also have a resume workshop to help you provide a professional resume to potential employers.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really like New River Community College because the instructors are very helpful and patient. If you need help it's here. There is various ways to get help in your courses at NRCC.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: this school is a great, affordable, and easy way to begin a college education. Teachers help students understand material, walk in tutoring is available, tuition is fairly low. also, the transfer programs they offer are excellent. if one completes a transfer degree at new river, they can receive guaranteed admission to any in state university.

Overall Experience: Avoid online classes at all cost, they are horrific.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes seem manageable, Professors differ - some are better than others (communication, teaching methods, individual attention given to you as a student and you never really get to form a relationship with your on-line instructors). For me, this was difficult as I am the type of person who learns best audibly and visually.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I do not think that residence who do not live on campus should have to pay tuition to attend school. FASFA is anyone's first source, which I applied for on my own before approaching New River College about attending/programs, etc. Also, as a disabled single mother of a toddler, I think that more support should be offered by the school/local and state funds. Scholarships are really hard to come by and I have had to take out student loans for transportation, child care, books, a computer and software, and I still am not properly equipped to be the best student I am able to be.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I honestly was not extremely impressed with the school as a whole, due to several things. Lack of communication between campuses and inter-departmental communications seem to be lacking. However, it is my understanding that they are going through several changes in curriculum, professors, tutors, and other areas. I do think there are some outstanding professors that are employed by the college, one in particular whose 30+ year teaching experience and expertise is not being used to its full potential. He is only teaching part-time and has not even been approached to work as tutor, although they are in desperate need of tutors in all areas of study.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: My Student Advisor is very good and he handles the Education program. He is very talented and experienced in many aspects that are of particular interest to me, i.e.; Humanities and the Arts, etc.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had a great experience overall.

Academic Experience: NRCC is a very friendly college. I am in the nursing program and it is very intense, needs time and effort to complete it. But at the end it worth it.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: For a community college it is very good and I would make the same choice again.
