Central Virginia Community College Reviews

I'm majoring in Kinesiology. I love the topic and class work. When it comes to tests though, the professors try to make the questions as complicated as possible. Most of the medical related fields are done this way though. What I enjoy are the activities in class. Every week we either have a lab or perform some activity related to what we are learning. The workload is not bad at the moment, but I am not officially in my major yet. I have heard that the second year of the program is the hardest. Internships are incredibly easy to come by as well. Not only is there a gym on campus that accepts many interns every year, but there are also gyms and health facilities near Longwood that also see many student interns.
There are a few professors that have long outlived there use at the college despite their tenure, but there are some really great professors there too that actually care about the students. Currently the college is having difficulty with having programs too small for the level of interest. That leaves a lot of students not getting into the program they want. All of my classes this past semester were less than twenty except my anatomy and physiology one, but I never felt that a professor didn't know me or have time for me.
Although Central VA Community College only offers Associates degrees and Certificate programs, the school is an excellent choice for anyone wanting to start on a career path. Local and Nationwide Universities are willing to work with CVCC for students who want to transfer credits. CVCC is an accredited school and offers a variety of career classes. One unique feature of CVCC is their career resource website, a feature of Blackboard that counselors encourage students to use. The website features several career aptitude tests, a list of different careers and descriptions, and a variety of tools for students to engage with. Every few weeks, CVCC hosts different local and national businesses for career day. The business representatives are able to converse with students and share with them what makes their business special.
