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.
Review Cape Fear Community College
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.
I love Cape Fear! The professors are wonderful and extremely helpful! I am so excited to be able to be a student at Cape Fear for another year. The atmosphere of the college is wonderful, and there is such beautiful scenery because it is Downtown, Wilmington!
