Not to brag, but we're pretty good at it. Our teams have won 13 national championships and we have had more than 140 All-Americans.

At Rock Valley College, you're not just a number. Our highly respected faculty have master's degrees, doctorates and real-world experience. You won't be competing for attention in a huge lecture hall. Our average class size is 21, so you'll get a chance to interact, challenge and be challenged by your instructors.

Wednesday, April 8, 2015, 6-8pm, Woodward Technology Center (WTC) 117-121A look at the film “I Came to Testify”, part of the Abigail Disney’s Women, War and Peace series.
"When the Balkans exploded into war in the 1990s, reports that tens of thousands of women were being systematically raped as a tactic of ethnic cleansing captured the international spotlight. I Came to Testify is the moving story of how a group of 16 women who had been imprisoned by Serb-led forces in the Bosnian town of Foca broke history’s great silence – and stepped forward to take the witness stand in an international court of law.”
A collaborative effort with the YWCA.
