Cape Fear Community College has been a wonderful place for me to grow. Although not perfect, I have been both challenged and nurtured at this school. Although community college can hold a stigma, I was pleasantly surprised at how well this school defies the stereotypes. With all the financial aid, counseling services, accessibility services, wide range of academic classes, and even extracurricular classes available, it is clear that this is a school that cares about its students. I have met many interesting people, caring professors, and even helpful secretaries. Although there have always been a few anomalies thrown into the mix, my experience at this school has overall been incredibly positive and prepared me for the next step of my life at university.

I am an alum of CFCC, as well as a current student. I returned back to school at CFCC in 2003 for the first time since attending Penn State as a scholar athlete in the 1990's. While I had no idea what to expect going in, I knew it wasn't going to be anywhere near my experience in State College 15 years earlier. I must say though, I was, and have been, even up to this very day, pleasantly surprised, quite impressed and MORE than happy with the level of professionalism that I have been met with from each and every instructor, department head, and each member of all of the various departments that I have worked with over the last 15 years. From the book store to the Financial Aid office, the employees have either helped me in a manner with which solved my problem, or found the right person to do so, and very cordially I might add. I have enjoyed my experiences with CFCC. Maybe there's something to be said for 3,000 some undergraduate students vs. 30,000...just sayin.
I found myself in a rut towards the end of the semester due to some personal life things and a professor of mine took notice and talked to me after class one day. He really gave me some of the best advice I've heard since I got to college that afternoon. They're here to help with more than just the curriculum. He told me about the counseling services at CFCC and how they could help me more. As of the classes, well they're great! they're not too big so there's a lot of opportunity to follow along easier and ask questions when you have them.
