Roar Lions Roar!  In addition to being an affordable, high quality college, RVCC boasts an accomplished athletic program, which continues to make quite a name for itself!  In fact, the Women’s Volleyball Team clinched its second straight Garden State Athletic Conference Championship with a record of 11-1. This marks the first time in RVCC’s history that a women’s program has won back-to-back Conference Championships. And, this excitement comes on the heels of a phenomenal 2017-2018 school year in which the Lions shattered records in two sports—cross country and volleyball—making top 10 national rankings for the first time in the College’s history!
