I enjoy the blended and online curriculums at Central Piedmont Community College. The teachers are very supportive and I am very grateful for the early college program. As a student who comes from a low income family, it has definitely been a blessing for me to attend community college. I strive to do my best every day in hopes of transferring to a 4-year University. I aim to peruse a Bachelor's degree in Social Work, specifically in the field of child welfare. As a childhood cancer survivor, I find it very important to spread hope to other children who are facing hard times. I am passionate about this field decision, as it will allow me address and solve problems, empower clients, and promote social justice.
I like the way they treat us and how they prepare us for a 4 year collage and also for life.As a first collage generation is really interesting how collage work also I’m so proud to be in collage even though can be hard financially because I don’t have the money to go collage, one of the reasons I plan to work to save for my collage I really want to make proud my family.
Central Piedmont Community College is affordable, yet has so many opportunities within it. Although, these opportunities require active searching and engagement, the pay-off is worth it. There are professors and faculty here who care about your success and are more than willing to help you out. Work-based learning, tutoring services, librarian appointments, and so much more are available and can help you with what you need. Although, it can be a hit or miss, there's always someone willing to help. Programs and clubs are recommended to become more involved in the school. Classes are small compared to your typical university, allowing for more questions and better relationships with professors. Commuting can be difficult due to traffic, but there's plenty of parking spaces that I've never had too much of a challenge. Although, it may not hold all the opportunities and resources than a typical university, for a community college- it's a more than worthwhile experience.
My experience at Central Piedmont Community College is amazing. Only having two classes per week and still getting out early enough to enjoy my day is the best. Although it's a community college, I feel as though they have amazing professors that take pride in what they do! I don't think I want to get my Associates, then transfer. I think I'm ready to go to a University. That's why I'm applying for a variety of different scholarships. Save my money, so I can afford to go to my Dream school North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University within the next year.
my experience with central Piedmont has been great since there are so many campuses there's plenty of people who can help you at each one so even if I can't get to my campus for a question I could go to any one and get help. I've always had the best experience with getting information whenever I needed it and whenever I've had a problem it was fixed very fast. the school is also beautiful and have small classes which are great for being able to ask questions and having a relationship with your teachers and classmates.
The campus is always very clean and well-maintained. The staff is kind, and helpful and does their best to engage students inside and outside of the classroom. The application/registration process is simple and easy to follow. Overall, I have enjoyed my time there so far and hope I can continue to attend for the remaining upcoming semesters.
Their application and class registration process is exceptionally straightforward and I've had plenty of opportunities to engage with the community of learners. It truly seems like most, if not all students are here because they chose to be here and have a genuine love for the school and for learning.
I love how there are so many resources to aid students on their journey to either get an associate degree or transfer to a 4-year university. One thing I would like to see changed is the structure of online courses. I feel that teachers are less inclined to really go out of their way to help students in an online class. There also isn't a lot of recourses to help you in the class aside from maybe your textbook.
When it comes to my experiences here at CPCC, It is indeed very balanced on a scale of great vs. not so well. Now, I do say that it is great that my major in cyber security is at this school. Because I've been hit with a lot of schools here in North Carolina that do not offer this certain program, and most of you have this program, which is not fully something I would get into and doesn't look like they offer much, but since I'm just now getting into my major courses, I am very excited to learn more and make this into a career because this is something that I have been interested in for a long time. When it comes to things that I'm not so good at, I do have the same difficulty reaching out to people, but as far as staff or advisors are concerned, it takes a while to have somebody call back or answer certain questions that I have. Other than that, this campus is a good place to gain experience and college life, even though it is a community college.
This college has opened doors I never expected to be opened, and they've made sure I don't fall behind in anything that I'm trying to invest in.
From the moment I first visited, everyone was nice and helpful with my questions. Apart from the program available for my chosen career, this is the reason I decided to attend despite other options. I do appreciate the flexibilty and resources available at the campus. The teachers are helpful too.
Central Piedmont is a great college. I obtain my associates degree and was able to start a new career. It is very affordable and easy to navigate. They have a variety of fields to study and locations to learn at. I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to gain a new skill and/or degree.
The classes are very flexible for scheduling and all of my professors have been really nice and supportive.
The online-offline integration is a lot smoother than with other community colleges I have used. The shorter class times have helped me a lot when it comes to my motivation and ability to pay attention in class.
My experience has been awesome. I've had quality instructors and instruction. I have had small classes with challenging assignment. I receive quality feedback. I've not experienced things that I would like to see changed except the cost of books and materials.
Central Piedmont is a great starter college! It was super easy to apply and all the employees were so helpful and easy to work with! Any time I would need any assistance they were always very helpful and patient! As a starting freshman it is suprisingly hard to figure out everything right away, but they made it very easy to figure out and explained what I need to do. The only thing is that I really wish that their libraries were bigger, especially the central campus one in Uptown, Charlottte. It is a great campus, with many great accommodations and features. But for the amount of students that go to CPCC, I believe there should be more seating areas for students. It would also be great if there was more food options and cafes! Spending so much time there studying, I'm sure that students would absolutely appreciate that! Nevertheless, all my professors are the sweetest and super helpful in my studies! I wouldn't want to start my college experience anywhere else!
I think it's pretty nice so far. The teachers are nice and the classes are understandable and vast. I am incredibly excited to get my Associates here and transfer to Wingate
