Generally, a great school! Made friends, enjoyed all of my classes and the professors really having a caring heart and passion about their academics. Yes, I've had my issues (looking at you, Student Services), but overall reccomend!
Review Northern Virginia Community College
I took four online classes to boost my transfer application after a leave of absence from my previous university (Calculus, Statistics, Japanese, and Securities Investments). Since I only went to campus for midterms and finals, I don't have much to say about the atmosphere, but the academics were easy enough. I found the online format an excellent option; it allowed me to be flexible in my timing and to take days off if I got ill or had other commitments. They also offer 12- and 8-week condensed courses to further accommodate students' schedules. As long as a student is diligent and organized NVCC online classes are a great option!
I am currently attending NOVA's Loudoun Campus for the Fall 2016 semester. However, I have determined that the school does not fit my needs. I originally attended from out of state because of its relative affordable out-of-state tuition compared to nearby universities, but I soon discovered that my professors were either dull or did not explore the lessons and concepts of their class with the sort of intellectual curiosity and expertise that I would like. Furthermore, the student leadership culture at the Loudoun campus is deplorable, and communicating with the SGA was a pain. I came from a high school with active student leadership that bettered not only our school but the entire community, and sought to implement common sense policies and reforms to benefit students; I did not experience such leadership at NOVA Loudoun. It's for these reasons that I will be transferring back to Florida in the Spring and attending the University of North Florida.
