Central Virginia Community College can be easily affordable. Advisors in the Counseling and Admissions office are always available for guidance. Most classes are small in size. Their size enables students to engage in class and ask questions. Writing center is one of my favorite place at CVCC. Peer and professional tutors proofread students' papers and assist them in writing. It has been a great source of help. Food is a little expensive there.
Moreover, CVCC has many guaranteed admission agreements with four-year colleges and universities. Students can transfer to other colleges without any difficulty. Transfer counselors make sure that students all fulfill course requirements of prospective college or university and transfer their credits easily. I finished my freshman year at CVCC and have transferred to the University of Virginia. Scholarships opportunities are offered to college students who maintain good GPA. Overall, my experience at CVCC has been wonderful.

What I like about Central Virginia Community College is that it has a lot to offer for the size it is. It is a very small school but there are many classes you can take. What I would like to see change is the professors. Some professors I have taken have been very rude, arrogant, and sarcastic. I would like to see CVCC have better professors that actually care about their students.
I recently graduated from CVCC. My experiences at this school were good. The classes weren't terribly challenging, but they weren't a breeze. The classes were mostly smaller, so you were able to have one on one with the teachers, which was nice. The professors seemed to genuinely care about your success. If I had to, I would definitely take more classes there.
