J. Sargeant Reynolds has helped me out tremendously in my pursuit of earning an associate degree and beyond. Each semester at Reynolds, I have had a fair amount of choices in course selections as well as, course formats (lecture based or online learning). The faculty are strong in their respected disciplines and most of them truly care about your academic success and growth. The tuition is comparable to most public 2 year institutions and is far less than most private and public 4 year institutions.There are however, some areas of disappointment. When it comes to scheduling time to meet with your assigned advisor, it can be rather difficult if he/she is on sabbatical or adjunct. Often times, I had to schedule time to meet with an advisor in the Enrollment Service Center, which is already overburdened. Overall, I rate my experience to be good. Based on faculty, cost of attendance, and course flexibility. I believe it is definitely worth attending for those students who consider transferring in the state of VA and want to reduce their overall college debt and plan to apply to a "reach" school after the 1st or 2nd year.
