Campus Life

RVCC is a thriving campus

With close to 50 different clubs and organizations, student government, honor societies, leadership development, athletic teams and intramural sports, theatrical and musical performances, speakers and much more, RVCC gives students a total college experience.

Student Clubs

With so many clubs and organizations to choose from at RVCC, students are sure to find one that matches their interests or talents. All clubs and organizations are led by students, for students. If a student doesn’t see what they’re looking for, they can even start their own club.

Honor Societies

RVCC has several chapters of national and international honors societies to foster student’s love of learning and encourage their desire to excel.

Student Government

Students are the backbone of campus life. Students with interest in fundraising initiatives, leadership seminars, or allocating funds for diverse school clubs with a group of their peers, should concern getting involved with student government.


Athletics are a vital part of student life at RVCC. The College currently offers eight athletic programs that participate in NJCAA DII or NJCAA DIII levels. If a student prefers something more informal, the Athletic Department also sponsors intramural sports programs, giving students the opportunity to socialize while keeping fit through exercise.

Fitness Center & Pool

RVCC students have access to a 2,800 square foot Fitness Center and a six-lane, 25-yard indoor pool for lap swimming. They both offer great opportunities to be physically active on campus.

Student Performances/Art Gallery

The College’s Arts & Design Department offers opportunities for students to participate in dance, musical and theatrical performances, as well as art shows.

Service Learning

Students may have an opportunity to participate in our nationally recognized Service Learning Program, in which they serve the community as part of their classroom instruction.


Is there any place on campus where a student can get a meal or snacks?

Hot meals, fast food, snacks and vending machine services are provided in the cafeteria by the College’s food service partner. The cafeteria is located on the upper level of the College Center. Vending machine services are available throughout the campus. 

How does a student join one of the College’s clubs?

Students should contact a club advisor if they’re interested in joining a club.

What is a Student Engagement Transcript and how do students obtain one?

The Student Engagement Transcript is an official listing and validation of your student’s leadership roles, community service and internship experiences, and much more. Official copies of a student's Student Engagement Transcript are a great complement to their resume and academic transcript when transferring to other colleges or applying to prospective employers or scholarship committees.
