Cleveland Community College is a great place for students looking at getting a start in post High School Education without attending a more expensive University, but many of the things we associate with college life are absent. Namely, CCC is missing a student community, sports, and successful clubs. This is a good place if you are looking into a short term specific subject, such as cosmetology. However, you aren't going to get a real "college experience" as we understand it in pop culture.

Cleveland Community College is the #2 school for practical nursing in the state of NC. The instructors are hard, but caring and want to see you do well. The workload is just what you would expect for a nursing program, a lot of work but it is normal. We will be dealing daily with human lives, we can never know too much. Our facilities are great, labs are wonderful. We have a 100% state exam certification pass rate, that speaks for itself! Being accepted into such a respected program is a blessing, I hope to continue my education on to be an RN there with help from grants and scholarships.
I believe that Cleveland Community College is the best community college that Cleveland County has to offer. The Professors will work with you if you need help, they will explain the subject in great detail. Cleveland Community College is only 30 minutes from where I live. What I love about my major which is Broadcasting and Production Technology is that it is mostly a hands on major
