Central Piedmont Community College Reviews

CPCC is a great school for anyone who needs to get a few general education requirements out of the way or seeking a more affordable option than immediately attending a four-year university. The advisors are great at preparing you for transferring or obtaining a certificate and make sure that you are on the right track for your needs. With so many campuses to choose from as well as numerous online options, it is easy to obtain the education you deserve. CPCC is known as one of the top community colleges in the area and they are known for quality educators and classes. I am glad that I chose to obtain my Associate of Arts from this school and pleased to have saved money while attending a low stress environment.
A lot of my classwork in all of my classes at Central Piedmont Community College is on a system called Blackboard. On Blackboard, you can look at your grades, syllabus, assignments, teacher contact information, resources, and more (depending on the course taken). Though there maybe mild issues that you can report to your teacher, Blackboard is fairly simple to understand and, usually, the college's representatives present a tutorial on how to use it early in the school year (for new students). There is another online component called Moodle that has a different layout but pretty much has the same function as Blackboard (this one also depends on the teacher or course you take).
The experience that I have at school is great because the campus that I go to is really nice and calm. When I go to school i feel safe and ready to start my morning at school. There are couple things that I like about the campus is: parking, environment, classes, bookstore, library, and cleanliness. One thing I like about the school is that its small and really nice. I always make new friends, sit at the library read a book or do my homework. The classes that I took at Harris campus were great and flexible. I had great teachers and great hours which were part time classes. I would choose my school because i really enjoy going there and plus I will be enrolling in a Dental Assisting program in the fall, which is really exciting for me.
