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.
Attending Northern Virginia Community College is nothing short of amazing! It is cheaper than most four year universities yet has great professors/classes. There are lots of different people with different cultural backgrounds which lets you look at the world at a different perspective. There are many ways to get involve in the school and would recommend it to anyone who wants a great school for a great price!
