Reviews

Some of the reviews posted by the alumni are:

  • Rowan College at Burlington County is not bad at all. You just have to find the right professors. The ones I have had are super friendly, loves to get the class engaged with activities and loves to help out their students. The college campus is beautiful and kept neat. There's always cool events going on such as, when finals were coming up one year, they brought in puppies for us. There was also goat yoga, they made a roller skating rink one day and there was a day we got to make out own stuffed animals! As for getting the classes you want you just need to make sure you register early and you will be fine. The homework can be overbearing at times but for the most part its manageable as long as you keep up with it!

  • I did not expect community college to be this good. I was super bummed when I could not go to a university due to funds, but RCBC was a really good choice! The campus is beautiful, the professors are great, and advising is helpful as well. This college is cheap, with great opportunities for financial aid, and is great if you live locally. I would totally recommend it to anyone who is looking to get a degree without going into debt.
