Roanoke-Chowan Community College

Message from the President

Dr. Jimmy TateWelcome to the Roanoke-Chowan Community College virtual campus!  Whether you are exploring the web or considering making a new career choice or entering college for the first time, you have made an excellent decision to visit our College Website. We are the Home of the “Waves.” Our strong history of “Wave” Pride enables our faculty and staff to offer our students an outstanding learning environment.

Roanoke-Chowan Community College began in 1967 and many leaders have contributed to the success the college enjoys today.  As the eighth President of this great college, I promise that our college will be reintroduced to the community, state, and nation.  This virtual tour is part of this reintroduction.

We are proud of our campus which consists of over 41 acres with 7 different buildings.  Our campus is home to a seven acre North Carolina Wildlife projects.  As many of you know, we have unique soil in this area and this uniqueness allows our college an opportunity to explore various academic opportunities.  Collectively, we have one of the best Fine Arts Programs within the Community College System featuring the native clay pottery program which has earned statewide recognition.

In visiting our website, please visit the section on the curriculum programs we offer, and let me know if there are additional programs you believe the college should consider.

Please know that Roanoke-Chowan Community College is an exciting place and offers a positive learning atmosphere.  Please call and make an appointment with our Admission’s Team who will gladly meet with you to explain the many opportunities available to you.  Again, welcome to Roanoke-Chowan Community College.


Dr. Jimmy T. Tate, President
