Catawba Valley Community College Reviews
Catawba Valley Community College has been an excellent first home for me so far. It is my first year as a college student and they have made things very simplistic for me. Each staff member understands that I am a freshman and I have plenty of questions, but that does not bother them one bit. I was handle with care when it came to registration for the Fall 2017 semester and all my questions were answered about not only classes but financial aid as well as safety and the transfer process. They work around your schedule and make sure you are not overloaded with classes each semester. This is a huge plus when thinking about how often college kids are pressured into taking many classes at a time to finish their degree. CVCC has an outstanding environment and I am beyond glad to say I am apart of one amazing community.
I graduated with an Associate's in Science, it was a transfer degree that enables us to have an easier time transferring to 4 year universities.The advisors here aren't as interested in finding out what program we are planning on majoring in at our future university; which can be very important to be able to match up the classes we need - to ensure we have all needed pre-requisite program requirements met before we can get accepted into our program of study.I also had to take their college student success course 2 times (even though I made a B the first time) because the curriculum for the course had changed within the 4 years since I had taken the course & I had to pay for it again.The math course I was first placed in, was also no longer being taught by the time I was supposed to graduate & was not able to be used to meet any program requirements,so I was forced to take an extra math course.The professors here are either amazing or horrible,there's not many that were in between.
I have attended bigger schools and and smaller schools in my pursuit for higher education and I have to honestly say that CVCC is "just right." It has all the necessary amenities that one needs such as a computer lab and library with a knowledgeable staff. The admission process was quick and effortless and everyone seemed genuinely interested in my education. The teachers are approachable and interested in their students' success. One of my teachers in particular was always willing to listen whenever I had the least little concern about my schoolwork, and my concerns outside the classroom as well. I would recommend this campus to anyone looking for a college with a more personal feel, and far less expensive than most universities.
