It’s been pleasant so far! Some of the online and administrative stuff is a little disorganized but it doesn’t take to long to figure it out or find it. I've enjoyed most all of my classes and professors, and have had a great start to transitioning back to school and a great start to eventually transferring to a four year school and starting a new career.

I have mostly attended Cape Fear Community College via online classes, but my experience has been great. The professors are very nice and quick to respond to any questions or concerns I may have. The campus is close to home if I ever need to go speak to someone directly. Overall I would definitely recommend this college!
Almost everything about CFCC is great! All of the locations I have been to are amazing. The staff is always willing to help you, no matter the situation. Their advising office is one of the best i've been to. Everyone there helps you understand what you need to do to complete your education and they never fail to help you organize your schedule on the spot. The professors are there are truly one of kind as well. They are there to help you succeed and give you their office hours so you can come to them for extra help. It is truly a wonderful school and I am so glad I am able to attend.
