Cape Fear Community College Reviews
This is my second go-round at Cape Fear Community College. I will be finishing this fall with my Associates in Arts. I have nothing but kind words about this college. One thing that I would like to mention. My student advisor has helped me out tremendously! From the time I walked in her door, not knowing much about this new aged-college life. She has given me her undivided attention and expertise in my curriculum. Kudos to Cape Fear Community College Student Advising Team!
My time at Cape Fear Community College has been nothing but positive! The atmosphere is great, the campus is clean, and the downtown location makes being at school not feel like school at all! During my almost two years here, most of my professors have been wonderful and extremely helpful. The staff make you feel like they really care about your future.
At Cape Fear, the professors have genuinely wanted to help me succeed. Whenever I need help with an assignment, I can email my professors or go see them during office hours. Instead of them seeming like I was interrupting them, they welcomed me in and actively listened to my questions/concerns. I recommend going to CFCC before attending a four-year university. At CFCC, I took an ACA class, which is for transfer students, and I actually really liked it. That class helped me research and look into four-year universities to transfer to after I graduated with my associates degree from Cape Fear.
