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.
The Estelle M. Black Library at Rock Valley College features nearly 75,000 volumes and more than 650 periodicals, and access to the interlibrary loan system. It also features spaces for individual and group study, and if you get thirsty, there's a coffee shop in the lobby!
RVC competes in NJCAA Division III in men's and women's basketball, women's volleyball, golf, baseball, softball, men's and women's tennis, and men's and women's soccer. Not to brag, but we're pretty good at it. Our teams have won 11 national championships and we have had more than 130 All-Americans.
In recognition of the need for an organization to meet the academic, philosophical, social and political needs of veterans of the United States military, the RVC Student Veterans Association was formed to develop and maintain a veteran identity within the Rock Valley College community, promote veteran's issues, assist in the integration of veterans into the academic community, and promote community leadership and service.
Our organization is open to all Rock Valley Students who are veterans, family of veterans, faculty and persons interested in supporting our veterans of the armed forces.
Rock Valley College Student Veterans Association is a member of the national organization Student Veterans of America.
Every Thursday from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 in the Student Center, room 1222.
