College of the Albemarle Reviews
I truly enjoy the atmosphere the school has to offer, going in I was quite nervous because of the new environment but there really isn't any reason to be. The classes are relaxed (not too relaxed to where you can get away without doing work) and other students are really helpful with showing you around or giving you some insight about the class you're taking. Paying for classes can be a struggle but really that's with any college. The financial aid office workers are extremely kind and understand how difficult paying for college can be. They really will try to work with you so you can pay for your classes in a timely matter.
College of the Albemarle is a typical community college with a desire to push the students to attend a four-year university. However the local area is the most boring place you will ever go, with no real form of entertainment. The college also does not have any athletics, so if you are an athlete good luck.
My experience at COA was very good. It was hit and miss with some of the professors, but I got by. The staff at this school are the most lovely and helpful people in the entire world. They understand how hard it is to be enrolled in classes and also have a full life to tend to, and are there for support 24/7. The Drama department is the best community college drama department in the state.
