Lord Fairfax Community College Reviews

The campuses are nice and most of the staff are friendly and ready to help. However, the staff does not reply to emails very quickly. The schools do not do anything outstanding compared to other colleges. LFCC should alter their online payment methods for past balances, making the balances eligible to be paid at any time online.
Review Lord Fairfax Community College
Two of my three professors were excellent, but my History professor bumps the rating down to 3/5. My Biology professor was very enthusiastic about the course materials and subject in general, knowledgeable, prompt with grades, and very willing and available to help. The College Success Skills teacher as well obviously cares about his students and wants them to do well in school. My History professor, however, seemed almost non-existent. She was okay with returning grades quickly, but she never gave feedback on assignments. I asked for feedback twice and she only gave a one-sentence critique one of the times I asked. While I did not try to meet with her in person, one of my Biology classmates did. Apparently she was not available during her posted office hours. I also noticed several errors in the online quizzes where the incorrect answer was selected in the computer as correct. I am hoping that my next online class will go a little better as I am taking another one this coming semester.
I absolutely love Lord Fairfax Commmunity college. I have attended both the Fauquier and Middletown campuses. The college is smaller so it is quick to get around campus and to the parking lot! The professors and security really do care about you and will make it a point to k now you by name. Attending a community college before a 4 year university was the best decision I ever made. I saved thousands of dollars in doing so. The campuses are also close to me so I didn't have to live on campus and was able to keep my job. Overall I've had a positive experience at LFCC. Go Lions!
