Alvin Community College Reviews

People do not have great enthusiasm when attending community college; however, Alvin Community College was able to provide a great experience for me. I am an alumni who graduated Fall 2019. Attending smaller classes gave the professors an opportunity to help students if needed, as well as building a relationship with students and even just knowing the names. There were also fun activities in the fall to get the student body together as well as numerous clubs to find interest in. Academic advisors helped me throughout the enrollment process for classes as well as making sure I am on the right path for success in my career.

Most of the professors are good, some are terrible. Solid Nursing program which is my major. Its a community college so no dorms or real campus life. The Cafe is nice and has hot food sometimes or sandwiches. Lots of snacks. Its also a bookstore and has a supplies needed albeit at a higher price. Its big enough to get lost on your first day but small enough to get around fine afterward. Science building is very nice and new compared to other buildings.
The Admin is very nice in the science building. The students there are very friendly as well as the people in the DCVS program. I had to take the USA exam and the staff inside was helpful on where to go as well as what I had to bring. The campus was kept tidy, as well as the outside parking lot. The neighborhood seems very safe, there are a lot of shops and families around the area to visit. When we toured the campus it seemed spaced out well, the cafeteria and bookstore are nice places to study and find handy materials.
