Flathead Valley Community College Reviews
The classes are pretty interesting overall, and there are a surprising amount unique courses to take. Science Fiction has an entire class based around studying sci-fi literature, movies, and everything else the genre has to offer. The teachers are kind and inviting, and I'm overall very satisfied with the skills I've learned.
Amazing faculty and teachers! So welcoming and eager to help in any way! Beautiful campus and location. Fun activities too
Currently I am majoring in physics. Flathead Valley Community College is a smaller school in a small town, so the physics program here is small. There are fewer faculty members and the budget is smaller than that of universities. However, because of the smaller size, students are able to get much more one-on-one time with professors and tutors than they would at bigger universities. I find the curriculum to be stimulating and worthwhile; not overbearing but challenging enough to prepare me to transfer to a four-year institution. I have had some fantastic opportunities to learn important skills for internships and jobs, such as programming in MATLAB and LabVIEW. I have also been able to work directly with Montana Space Grant Consortium to educate high schools and the general public on the polarization of light. Overall, I would say being a physics major at FVCC is very rewarding and enjoyable.
