Blue Ridge Community & Technical College Reviews
For many of my classes at Blue Ridge, it wouldn't require a whole lot of work to get As and Bs. Because I like to learn, I intentionally put in more effort to make the most of my education, but even if I didn't I'd still pass easily. If you are looking for a high-quality education, you probably won't find it here. Finding good professors is hit-or-miss; I've had a couple fantastic ones and some that weren't so great. I enjoy my classes, and I like to spend time studying on campus. As a student, I have access to a lot of resources through Blue Ridge, such as counseling, tutoring, and online research databases. Overall, for me, my education at Blue Ridge was a good stepping stone towards then transferring to a four-year university to really get to study what I love.
Blue Ridge has taught me some very valuable information through the courses I have taken there. Most of the instructors are personable and employed in the field they are teaching, which helps to get the real world perspective of the learning objectives. Class sizes are small enough that you can get one on one help with the instructors during the class or during their office hours.
I'm really enjoying my first semester here. It's during COVID times, so everything is online. But I really like that. It has made learning much easier to do at my own pace. The classes could be better structured, but overall I'm satisficed with my experience.
