Colby Community College Reviews

I love their distance learning program. While living in Florida, I am able to complete tasks and exams via webcam and videos. The teachers are always willing to help in any way they can, keeping student motivated towards the end goal: certification. This AVMA accredited school is a gem in the middle of the country and I am fortunate enough to have found this program. I work full time while still maintaining a part-time to three-quarter time class load. During hurricane season when we lost power for a week, teachers were willing to work with me through the challenges of a Category 4 hurricane. All of the professors are up to date on current care within the veterinary community.

I really enjoyed Colby Community college. As an athlete I was very wellknown in the community. The community is small, but very active and loving. I was supported by everyone. The athletic programs excelled, the teachers were very helpful and reliable, the facility is very nice and filled with up-to-date resources for all students.
The online classes seemed fine, but it did not matter because the administration and financial staff seem to more worried about money than helping students.
