Central Piedmont Community College Reviews
Central Piedmont Community College is, in my opinion, the greatest choice for a school to get an Associate's Degree. There is a diverse group of students at each of the different campuses and really provides a sense of belonging, whomever you might be. The buildings are all very new and always clean and taken care of. Many of the campus' offer places for food and coffee beyond just vending machines! The larger campus' also have book stores to buy school supplies, textbooks, school gear, and various other things. Even if you aren't attending to obtain a degree, taking just a few classes on something that interests you is a wonderful idea. The courses are carefully thought through and I learned so much attending my classes at CPCC. No matter what you're interested in learning or doing at Central Piedmont, you will have a wonderful time.
I have been living in the Charlotte area for about a year now while attending CPCC. This is not a four year university although I am in the process of trying to transfer to a four year, this a two year community college that offers great transfer programs. Not only that, there are so many activities going on around campus such as job fairs, participation of different clubs, and sometimes free food! The transfer advisors here are really helpful and provided me all of the information I needed in order to graduate and transfer. Professors are very helpful as well, they take the time to make sure you understand the material and answer any questions you may have no matter if it's a silly one. Overall, CPCC is a great community college to attend if you are living in the Charlotte area or even online!
Central Piedmont Community College is an amazing school! I took a class at the college while I was a senior in high school and fell in love with the freedom, environment, and diversity. I just completed my freshman year and will be continuing my education at CPCC. I plan on becoming a dental hygienist, and they have an excellent dental hygiene program, which I will be applying to in the spring. I love being a student at CPCC!
