Catawba Valley Community College Reviews

It's an okay start to your college career. Some of the staff doesn't care, some of them do, it kinda feels like the sequel to high school. But still it's a good way to get used to the schedule of college and the basics of how things will work at a four year university. Easy to get the credits you need in, the community here just isn't very unified.
It is a very nice campus with really good professors that really care about you and your studies. I also like how the Criminal Justice classes are all pretty much in one building so you aren’t having to bounce back forth between different buildings.
I was pleased with the education and opportunities I received from CVCC. My professors were helpful and inspiring. Going to a community college showed me that there is no wrong way to go through your education. We are all on our own paths and CVCC gave me a chance to discover that path. I wish I had majored in Education here but I chose Theater because I am passionate about it. However, I did have some wonderful English teachers that inspired me to teach English myself. I want to thank all of my professors for showing me that my education is vital and worth all the time.
It was great, professors made sure no student was left behind and made deadlines very clear. Website was very easy to navigate.
I was able to play basketball there at CVCC. It was the best decision I have made to go to this community college. Great Professors and tutors to make sure no one fails.
Most of my classes have been online. Catawba Valley Community College is a great school to go to if you are looking to get an Associate of Arts degree online and you are a resident of Catawba County.
Living in a Covid-19 era while studying a hands on profession is very tricky. Given the circumstance we are in, especially as oral professionals many things have had to change. The staff have gone to great measure to make sure we are still getting the most of our education given these very difficult times and circumstances!
I was choosing between a community college closer to me with the same program and CVCC. However, the staff at CVCC was so helpful and friendly I chose to make the 1 hour commute to study Dental Hygiene here!
I took one online class here and everything was laidback and easy to navigate. The teachers are always willing to help.
I had a good experience with CVCC. The teachers were very accommodating and always encouraged students to come to their office hours. However, the wifi at the school was very spotty.
I took classes on line due to corona. They were slightly unorganized and hard to keep up with. I would still recommend the regular online classes.
I enjoy this school because it offers plenty of help in every area that students struggle with. The classrooms are small so the attention from instructors are phenomenal. Every teacher I've been with had taught with excellence and talent.
I enjoy learning here at CVCC. Every class offers something unique. Learning here has been a joy. The professors and instructors do a well job in helping students succeed further in education.
I took several classes online over the course of my time there and those classes are no joke! There was always tons of work to do but it did have a good payoff in the end. Although I didn't necessarily enjoy my online classes, I did learn a lot from them due to the amount of work I had to put into it.
It needs to be fun events here, this school can't compete with other community colleges when it comes to doing anything fun at school.
It is very comfortable, especially for students that do not know yet what they want to do in life as in regards to their education. The teachers are excellent and the installations are very good
It is an ok school. Good to start here if you plan to transfer to a senior institution. Although, do not get involved with the wrong major, as it is a hassle to try to get out of. On the other hand, the teachers are generally caring and easygoing, though be wary of the ones who are solely here to make money.
