Have fun. Try stuff. RVC gives you opportunities to get involved. There are lots of student activities to choose from. We offer more than 20 clubs and organizations. Try your hands at student government. Join the staff of our campus newspaper. What's it going to be?
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 13 national championships and we have had more than 140 All-Americans.
Whether your plan is to take classes and transfer to a four-year university or enter one of our career programs designed to get you into the workforce right away, Rock Valley College has what you are looking for. Select from one of our more than 60 transfer areas or more than 30 career programs.
Whether you are new to the college or know your way around, we have a variety of services designed to help you succeed. We're here for you every step of the way.
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!
Since 2004, the Friends of Estelle M. Black Library has been involved in promoting the library and helping alleviate budget restrictions that prevent the library from reaching its optimal level of service. Specifically, the group has successfully enhanced the collections, programs, and facilities of the library. Proceeds from fundraising activity recently have been allocated by the Board of the Friends to replace VHS tapes with DVD versions of educational films, provide 594 eBooks, and purchase a laptop and photocopier for staff.
As a friend of the RVC Library, you’ll be involved in the life of the college. You’ll join with others who display the same interest and concern for a vibrant college library. And you’ll share the sense of good will with students and community members resulting from excellence in library services. Help us keep the RVC library strong.
