Central Virginia Community College Reviews
I think that this community college is a great place to go overall! I've started off online, and I've been receiving tremendous learning kills. next semester I look forward to being on campus. People go to cvcc for early college, that way they can start on their education early. Not many people are eligible to do that, so to have the opportunity is a blessing itself.
I enjoy CVCC because of the relationship the teachers attempt to have with the students. They make it clear that they are willing to help students whenever they need it and that their number one priority is the students learning experience. I am attending CVCC through an early college program, so I do not take classes on campus, but I have been to the campus and it is very pretty. All the faculty members I have met have been friendly and welcoming. I do not know of anything that I would change. Overall, CVCC is a very good school.
My time here at Central Virginia Community College has been wonderful. The counselors help you in any way they can, the professors are very good and make sure that they make themselves accessible to you, there are many work study opportunities, and if you intend to transfer, they do all that they can to connect you with 4 year schools. I will surely miss this school when i go on to nursing school!
