Central Virginia Community College Reviews
Central VA community college allows students to be well equipped with the tools they need to pursue higher education. They offer a wide variety of transferable classes which apply to many colleges within and outside of Virginia. The college is well equipped with security guards and they do a great job with teaching students what to do in dangerous situations such as a school shooting. The environment of Central Virginia Community College is friendly and welcoming to students, guests, professors, and visitors. Overall, I would highly recommend Central Virginia Community College!
CVCC had a rough mid semester transition last semester, and the teachers will ill equipped to do so. However, this semester the teachers were much better equipped to handle fully online courses. The online resources are decent, but CANVAS, among other programs, has completely gone haywire several times now.
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.
