Alvin Community College Reviews
I started at Alvin community because I wasn't sure if I was ready for a university. So I took some of the medical classes at Alvin and they are awesome and highly recommended. This college is definitely one worth looking into for a stepping stone but keep in mind the student body if difficult to handle. The overall feel of the campus is a little under driven. Its hard for students who may be looking into 4 year degrees or higher to start here due to the student bodies lack of motivation, and that alone makes it hard to keep up a self drive towards your end goal, especially if that goal is past a 2 year degree.
I feel my dual credit classes did not give me a true college environment. However, the professors are always willing to help.
Alvin Community College has been great for me through academics and also softball. I play softball at Alvin, so I am very social and very aware of the campus. It has been an amazing two years for me and sadly I will have to transfer after I receive my associate's degree. The only thing I would consider changing at Alvin Community College is to expand the parking at the "S" building, it is horrible trying to find parking for my morning classes. Other than the parking near the "S" building, Alvin has been a great ride and I enjoyed my stay there for both my academics and sports.
ACC is a safe, friendly, and education promoting environment. The teachers are so very dedicated to their work and are very helpful. The staff really cares about what students get out of it. There was a story how during even a tropical storm the library staff protected the books with fierce devotion.
Being a junior college, there really isn't anything in the way of partying, but the college is still really good at finding ways to instill spirit in its students and staff. The teachers here are spectacular and you definitely get plenty of bang for your buck. It is a beautiful campus and I have never felt unsafe here. The food in the student center is 5 star but it will fill your cravings for sure.
I love Alvin College; the environment amazing. You can tell that everyone treats each other like family as soon as you walk on to campus. There is no place I would have wanted to start my college career off. On top of the great campus life the professors care so much for their students it is crazy! I still talk to my very first professors!
The Counselors are very friendly and helpful. Tuition is affordable and cost of living is low. It has many resources for tutoring. Easy parking and access to campus. Only problem so far has been communication from the financial aid department.
Good school, most proffesors are amazing, great atmosphere, great accomodations for students. Administration is always very helpful and truly care about every student
Technically, I am a student at Alvin Community College; however, I do not take classes on campus. I am a high school student who is enrolled in the Dual Credit program at my school. Alvin Community College has given me tools necessary to be successful at a university. It is great preparation and practice. So far, all of the professors that I have had the privilege to meet have done outstanding jobs teaching and connecting with the students. Overall, taking class from Alvin Community College has be a great experience.
I did not physically go to Alvin Community College, I am a dual credit student via Robert Turner College and Career High School. Through their relationship I was able to begin taking college courses as a freshman in high school. I have never had a problem with any of my professors, they all have their quirks. Some do not mind if students doze off or leave early, while others do not all cell phones out and have note checks. Though as long as you do well in your courses and study it is a breeze. The only thing I do not really like is the lack of having the teacher for multiple terms, there is the possibility after the first semester that the second semester course will be taught by another professor which makes the bond between the students and faculty a bit difficult to attain, especially with dual credit students not being on the campus to go and meet the professors outside of class time.
I liked how the teachers and staff greet you when you first come throught the doors. Everyone is very respectful and kind.
Alvin Community College is a great school to attend. I've been attending this college for about two years and within the school you can meet a lot of educated people with resources. Numerous people who attended this college were offered internships right after graduating.
I love the environment this college has!!! I love my classmates and the professors! It is very easy to navigate through Black Board and the teachers respond rather quickly to e-mails. I like that the class size is not as large as a university. It allows every student to have their questions answered.
Alvin Community College is a great place. They have the best computer networking degree in the area. When you leave you will be set up to get certifications in COMPTIA and Microsoft.
Had no problem with getting the schedule that I needed, they worked with me and helped me get the classes that i needed as well as getting into the EMT program
The online classes are great, they help you and they know that your busy and they try to work with your schedule.
They transfer your credits to certain colleges and they do their best to make sure you get in to the college of your choice.
My teachers are very smart, and used to or currently work in the EMS field so we get real life examples and help.
there was some hidden fees with the EMT program that you didn't know till you got in the class, but they help you with them.
The programs offered help you get a job after your degree
