FVCC is great! The professors and faculty are knowledgeable, supportive, and caring, and available.

One can earn transfer degrees, AAS’s, certificates, and licensure for subjects from engineering to fine arts.

The campus is alcohol and drug free. The campus housing is incredible! Both buildings are safe. Each dorm room includes a kitchen and bathroom.
There is a cafeteria and a small café. The library has so many shelves of books and computer stations. There are copiers, drinking fountains, and restrooms stationed throughout the campus.

The facility is clean and hosts plenty events. Several sports are held every week: basketball, volleyball, ice skating, floor hockey, and ultimate frisbee. With student clubs: phi theta kappa, student government, computer programming, theater, music, art, LGBTQ+, and sports.

At FVCC, there are supportive professors and faculty available who skillfully teach an array of subjects in a facility that is clean, safe, and offers many extracurriculars.

I love FVCC, it was the best decision for me hands down instead of transferring right away to a large university. The staff is awesome, the educational opportunities and amount of course offerings are excellent and diverse. There are so many cool and unique courses and majors at FVCC such as brewing! The dorms are new and extremely nice, they are more like apartments! The campus is very nice, easy to navigate and always clean and welcoming. The library offers tons of support and technology access including internet, writing labs, computers, Virtual Reality, etc.
I have had a great online learning experience at FVCC. I have taken many online courses and have loved FVCC's online courses. The school offers many classes online, with some, the work can be completed at your convenience while others are held remotely with meeting schedules.

The class assignments are listed with specific deadlines. It is simple to submit one's work and it's easy to locate the required lecture/reading materials.

After Covid-19 happened, FVCC did a wonderful job transitioning classes to online. All teachers and faculty quickly learned virtual platforms and transferred their curriculum to suit the online delivery. FVCC is now offering most courses either in reduced in-person class sizes or completely online.

Even though the class is virtual, one has all the support from the professor as if they were attending an in-person class. The teachers respond to messages, emails, and phone calls promptly and can help a student understand the course’s concepts well.
