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!
Mostly small class sizes meaning lots of one-on-one time with professors. Tuition price was fair. I would encourage the school to provide academic advisers with more training to help students succeed.
It's a great college, and the instructors and staff go above and beyond to help students accomplish their educational goals!
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.
Staff, professors, and advisors are helpful. They help your through everything step-by- step if you are lost or you don't know what to do. Classes are flexible around your schedule. Professors are helpful and understanding of your situation. Advisors are there to help you to sign up for classes. They other online or on campus classes to fit your everyday life. I'm a mom and I also work, so I need a lot of flexibility to revolve around everything else in my life. It's also a great start if you eventually want to transfer to a four-year college. Blue Ridge Community College has many programs available to you.
I'm in the Early College program and I've enjoyed thoroughly all the years I've spent on this campus. I've never had a professor who wouldn't work with me to understand the material and the campus activities are fun. I have most significantly enjoyed my time spent with the Theatre Department here, as Jennifer Treadway is one of the best professors I've had. She cares about her students but is also sure to prepare us for our futures, whether in acting or in another field.
I like the college's proximity to my home, as well as the ability to take either seated or online classes to work towards my degree. The campus is fun, clean, and safe. The greenhouse and the areas of campus that are dedicated to the horticulture department are always open to the students and provide a beneficial learning environment for horticulture technology.
They have been very flexible and very helpful in trying to keep up with both work and school
I have done a few online courses and they have worked very well.
I like small classes. I can interact with the other students as well as my teachers. I feel as if I could go up to them or email them if any questions or problems. Most of the time when I have had an issue or a question the teacher was very quick with a response and help me through that issue or gave me a good answer to my questions.
I haven't really experienced this for myself, however I know many student that have chosen a career path and was able to get it at Blue Ridge Community. They have had nothing but good things to say about it.
I had my heart set on being am athletic trainer when I graduated high school. Blue Ridge Community help me figure out I do not want to be in the medical field at all, but to be an athletic director and help schools with their athletic programs.
I was terrified about going to college. Blue Ridge Community help me figure out what I wanted to be and got me on the right track to be that. Also helped me save money in the long run.
more hybrids than only online
I think I can get a job when I graduate making more money than I do now.
Financial aid was not helpful. I've been told the wrong thing by some staff members. And I don't think some people in advising want to be there.
