I love the variety of course that NOVA offers, and I absolutely have loved the professors that each them. So far, and this is my third semester, I have had wonderful professors who are passionate about their jobs and investing in us as students. The Loudoun campus I attend is beautiful and there are so many resources offered. NOVA's administration does their absolutely finest in providing us with all the tools we need to succeed. From computer labs, to tons of free tutoring, to a three story library, to academic counseling, this community college boasts a variety of compelling assets. Whether you're looking for you're looking for specialized course or just some gen-eds, NOVA has got you covered.
Review Northern Virginia Community College
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!
I took my classes at the Alexandria campus, and I loved it! I loved that it was cozy, and the cafeteria that everyone else thinks is too small and very community college-like. The professors are kind and they actually care about you and your grades!
