wonderful i appreciated my time here, i gained new experiences and an education i greatly love and will remember
Staff isn’t very helpful answering financial aid questions. I spent a total of three days trying to get answers as to why I did not receive a financial aid package, only to find my program of study did not qualify for aid.
I like how Blue Ridge Community College is a far less expensive option for people who want to further their education. There is a lot of diversity at our college. There is even a club called Diversity that celebrates the many different cultures from around the world. The professors at Blue Ridge, care about their students' success, and give extra help to those who reach out to them especially. There are academic advisors here who serve as invaluable resources to students who may need help setting goals or simply adjusting to college.
Professors in online classes are typically very involved and available to students. Many will go as far as to give their students their personal cell phone number so that students will have no trouble in contacting them when a problem or question about the class arises. They usually respond the same day they are contacted by a student.
I have had a wonderful experience at BRCC. The professors I have had are incredibly helpful and willing to help if I have any questions or concerns.
Since COVID-19 has closed many classroom spaces and reduced physical interaction at the college as much as possible, Blue Ridge Community College has switched almost all of its classes to online. While I greatly prefer in-person classes and haven't experienced online learning to the extent of this year, it has still been a good experience for me, despite all the troubles and issues of today's world. The courses contain material well-adjusted to online learning and every professor is available for conferences or more in-depth learning. The college has been great in keeping every student updated, and I've enjoyed this year greatly, despite all of the hardships that have come!
I have attended Blue Ridge Community College for about two years and have thoroughly enjoyed all of my classes, professors, and the general student life found on campus! While it is does not offer dormitories or housing in general, as it is a community college with the major intent to transfer students, I have made many great friends from many great activities found across campus from the different clubs and classes offered. All of my professors have been great teachers and advisors to my future, and they all have the best interests of their students at heart. Overall, I would highly recommend Blue Ridge Community College, whether it be for a general education degree, to transfer, or for a 4-year degree!
So far everything has been smooth sailing. there have been some hard times with trying to figure out how each professor wants things done. Other than that the online learning experience is everything I could have imagined it.
Most of my experience has been online due to COVID-19; however, I do feel like this is an amazing school. It is a cheaper option, and has helped me get started on my pre-requisites for my nursing degree.
Blue Ridge Community College has good online programs. The professors are able to help you out at all times and are there for you to succeed.
Teachers will always find a way to help you through email or video chat! They have all the tools you need and explain everything you need to well. They post videos to help you through learning how to work their website.
Everyone is very helpful. I feel comfortable on the campus! The teachers are all very nice. The advisors do well with helping you get your classes straight. They are always helpful and welcoming. You feel as if they want to help you in every way possible.
Campus could use some upgrades but people are friendly. Teachers want their students to do well and advisors seem to really know what they're talking about and try to get back to you quickly.
This is a pretty good community college. They have a nice and helpful staff. The campus is quiet and peaceful with a nice library. The professors have been mostly kind and helpful. If you are considering community college you should try this school out if you live in the area. It isn't the most exciting but it is your typical community college.
It is a good two-year college with many opportunities for the students. It provides are variety of classes for many different majors and has decent instructors for each class. Blue Ridge tries to focus on helping students make progress towards their long-term goals and makes sure to provide help and support in order for those goals to be met.
The academic advisors were extremely helpful, the campus was just the right size and pretty, and the professors really seemed to care for the student's further education endeavors. The resources available to us were great, and it was nice to have the option of a rec center. I do wish there had been more food options available, however it wasn't the end of the world because I went home after each day of classes. The library staff was helpful, and the amount of computers for use on campus was great. For the most part, I enjoyed my time at Blue Ridge and I would recommend it for anyone trying to save a little money.
Good community college, currently enrolled in the veterinary technician program. It's a very good program and great experience overall. The campus is very nice and has welcoming qualities all around. It will well prepare me for the career of being a veterinary technician in just two short years.
