Central Piedmont Community College Reviews
Central Piedmont was more than just a learning institution for me! I was able to develop long-lasting relationships with people whom I now consider family. When I first started at Central Piedmont, I was very introverted and shy but because I was surrounded by people that believed in me and encouraged me I now constantly push myself outside of my comfort zone and enjoy challenging myself in everything that I can do to help make myself a better person as well as encourage those around me! Thank you for this CPCC! I walk away with two associate degrees and a resume full of accomplishments and achievements. We were always kept up-to-date on things going on at the college and around the college and everyone's safety was never in question because it was ALWAYS a top priority.
At first, it was very difficult to become accustomed to online learning with COVID-19 but CPCC made it easy to transition with resources always available and professors doing their best to accommodate all of our needs. My grades actually skyrocketed after transitioning online and the programs used are phenomenal and easy to navigate! Online learning with CPCC will not let you down.
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.
