“Going to RCBC is much cheaper than a four-year, but with no sacrifice to the quality of learning,” Christopher said. “I would receive the same quality of education as I would for my first two years at a four-year school, but I would be able to take advantage of programs such as EOF, NJSTARS, the Statewide Transfer Program (earn an associate at community college and 4-year institutions must accept all credits), etc. These programs allowed me to go to RCBC without loans and will help me in the future at Rutgers.”

“Essentially, the main goal of my life is to plant trees under whose shade I do not plan to sit,” Robinson shared. “Despite the different aspects of my life, each holds true to this principle. I strive to be of service to others. As a future educator, my goal is to impact children by instilling hope and readiness to a promising future. I want to teach students what many people in my generation and earlier never learned or learned too late.”

“Now I have enough confidence to help and serve others with my skills, which is what I love to do,” Ceballos Gonzalez said. “Moreover, being the first one to go to college from my family is a great personal accomplishment for me. I started a new trend, opening doors for a better future, not just for myself but for my family and everyone I meet.”

“Since attending RCBC, I have attempted to heavily immerse myself in the college’s community as well as my own community,” Feinberg shared. “I have been an RCBC Service-Learning Scholar for the past two years. By being a Service-Learning Scholar, I perform volunteer work for RCBC, such as with the food pantry and blood drives. Due to this program, I have also obtained community service hours at Woodford Cedar Run. In addition to these co-curricular activities, I have managed to continue working at my local retirement community, Medford Leas. At Medford Leas, I provide food service to the residents and make memorable relationships with the elders of my community.”

“I chose RCBC because it is a great school, I deserved to further my education and I knew it would make my mother proud,” Woodard said. “I feel like she deserves that much, here or in spirit. The legacy my mother created was a hustling mentality. No matter what situation I have ever found myself in, I knew I would get out of it because this mouth is always open ready to be fed.”

“I think RCBC has made incredible strides to make our courses and materials available to us virtually when otherwise our education would be put on hold,” Scillieri said. “RCBC also provides many great resources and programs to help assist with higher education costs.”

“The RCBC 3+1 program offered me an excellent education and gave me the opportunity to save the money associated with most other bachelor’s programs,” Barsocchi said. “I was able to attend a school close to home and continued to work throughout the program. This truly helped me to build my resume through job and volunteer experiences.”

“Who would have thought my mom's worries about me being away would cultivate the best option ever? Starting out at RCBC, I only wanted to skate by and move on, but I soon learned that the college provided so much with regard to knowledge and hands-on experience, even more so than previous jobs I held,” Timothy shared. “Every class and assignment started to make more and more sense after I began working in the field. I can’t you tell how many times I would get a new project at work and the first thing I would say was ‘I did this in class; let me use it as a reference.’

“RCBC’s cost for the 3+1 program is unmatched and will not leave me with crippling student debt like so many of my friends and family who’ve completed their bachelor’s degrees elsewhere,” Colleen said. “It’s also a very short drive from my house, offers a wide range of classes and truly accommodates adult learners.”

“In 2019, I went to the Fall Open House, and I knew that this was the campus where I wanted to start my future,” Kraft recalled. “The 3+1 program really caught my eye because you can save so much money. I also read an article about how community colleges are a diamond in the rough. For instance, a class in philosophy, whether it is at an Ivy League or at a community college, is still a philosophy class.”
