My major at NRCC is Human Services. I am beyond pleased with the classes, professors and the advisor. The advisor is very helpful and set on helping you progress towards job opportunities once graduating or transferring to a four year college. The workload is never too overwhelming and if it is something your heart is truly into, you will find the classes interesting! There are a number of internship opportunities that will fit your interests!

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.

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.
