Flathead Valley Community College Reviews
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.
FVCC has some of the best professors I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. Almost all of the professors I have had have been incredibly encouraging, supportive and understanding to their classes, displaying a mutual respect that students value. I have heard many students on campus claim that learning more difficult subjects like mathematics was made easier from the high-quality instruction they received. Teachers at FVCC seem to genuinely take interest in their subjects, and most importantly they really love teaching.
Flathead Valley Community College has encouraging prospects in terms of alumni success and the value of their degree. In STEM majors especially, the school has churned out students that went on to work for prestigious organizations such as NASA, JPL, and SpaceX. For those not planning on transferring to a four-year institution, their Associate's degree does allow for a much wider field of options in terms of employment. FVCC hosts an annual job fair on campus and has online job boards specifically for students to find work, so there are resources and support for those who need it.
