Central Carolina Community College Reviews
I am in the dental program at CCCC and love it. The professors and staff are very personable and actually care about your academic future. The campus is very well organized, a medium sized student body, a nice bookstore and a cafe area. I have never waited more then 10 minutes to see my advisor or found it hard to make an appointment to meet with my teacher. The teachers are amazing and want to help you succeed. Hands down best community college in North Carolina! They are currently in the process of building a new health sciences building with state of the art technology. They have a nursing program, dental hygiene and assisting, welding, veterinarian technicians, culinary school and cosmetology! If you don’t come be a Cougar you are definitely missing out.
Central Carolina Community College is very okay. There isn't much of a sports scene and the surrounding town is very small and there is not much to do. The campus is very well kept by the kind and helpful staff and while it is no masterpiece of architecture it is not ugly or dirty. There are many classes offered here that are very much applicable to 4-Year schools and the class sizes are very reasonable, rarely exceeding 30 people. The teachers are kind and very helpful in all of the classes that I have so far taken and I would say it is a good starting place for college. There are also many certification style degrees in fields like nursing, veterinary care, and welding. Overall the school is okay for anyone who wants to go to a 4-year school for transfer or get a degree that can be used for work immediately.
Central Carolina Community College is a great school to help you financially before you enter a four-year college/university. Student life is great. You have many services that help students with their assignments. Tutors are provided free and you can even sign up to be a paid tutor. CCCC is not as big as other community colleges but I still believe it to be a good college. In the four years I've spent there I have always felt safe. There are security guards who are always on patrol to make sure everything is fine. CCCC also provides many clubs and activities after school. If anybody wants a small community college with a lot of student services and opportunities, then I would recommend this school.
