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.

Cape Fear is very student oriented and the staff is always willing to help whenever and however they can. They offer such a wide variety of courses, you can find a class for almost anything you're interested in. The teachers are knowledgeable and professional, but still relaxed in a way that makes classes run smoothly. A great school overall!
I’ve definitely had a good amount of issues trying to get into any of the programs I’ve attempted to get into. For instance I was accepted into the Radiography program, made to pay 145$ on a “trial session” or “skills awareness” class and then was kicked out along with a few other people because we didn’t do well enough. It’s like the instructors didn’t want to actually “teach” us but would rather eliminate the weakest links. But I’ve finally been accepted into the ADN program with no strings attached so I am happy.
