Signing up for courses and finding where the courses are located is super easy, but finding a course you need at a convenient time can be a challege. Counseling for courses and financial aid could use improvement, but for a public school everything is pretty decent.
Review Central Virginia Community College
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.
