Praise for Raritan Valley Community College

Ashley Thorne

Andrew Hacker, co-author of Higher Education? How Colleges Are Wasting Our Money and Failing Our Kids—And What We Can Do About It, has great things to say about a college near and dear to us. One of the 10 schools we liked was Raritan Valley Community College, which has a very good two-year liberal arts program. Small classes, dedicated teachers, and you discover students (you wouldn’t believe it) who are interesting and interested. After two years at Raritan, you can transfer to any larger university and actually have a better first two years than you would have at, let’s say, Michigan State where you’re in a lecture class listening to a PowerPoint with 500 other students.

Our own Glenn Ricketts, public relations director at NAS, teaches political science at RVCC. Great job, Glenn!
