Blue Ridge Community College - North Carolina Reviews
I like the school a lot! It has helped me tremendously. The classes are average. The teachers are very understanding and extremely nice as well! The Student Success Center is what has helped me the most. It is a tutoring center in the school. They help you with about any subject, and it's very calm and relaxing rather than stressful and irritating. Overall, I love this school!
The "small college" atmosphere is something I've always been drawn to. The classes sizes are small and that allows for more one on one help and attention. The mountainous area is beautiful with a lake sitting in the middle of campus! I've never had any issues with my questions going unanswered and every member of the staff is more than willing to help.
Blue Ridge is an excellent college to go to if you are planning to go straight into a career afterwards or transfer your credits to a university. The buildings need renovating, but the teachers have generally been nice and considerate, especially when it comes to the financial needs of the students. Other programs such as the work study program and free tutoring in general subjects has positively impacted my experience in college, making life just a little easier. The staff is friendly and the quality of teaching is very good. Never have I once felt unsafe, the campus police are quite reassuring.
