Piedmont Virginia Community College Reviews

There are things I would never dream of changing; I love the staff here! They are all friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. The insight of particular members helped me through quite unique circumstances that otherwise would have prevented me from attending college.

Unfortunately, there are some things that need to change (through no fault of anyone in particular). The availability of textbooks and ebooks at a reasonable price is lacking. I was fortunate enough to find mine through third-party sources, however, others in my classes were not so fortunate.

Piedmont Virginia Community College is an excellent place to pursue higher education for three primary reasons:

First, PVCC gives the gift of affordability. Today, college costs often stress students out due to abnormally high prices. At PVCC students can focus on achieving fantastic grades much easier due to lower tuition costs.

Second, PVCC holds excellent professor availability. At PVCC, professor availability is much more than just office hours, it is the idea of a professor's desire to be there for you in order for you to succeed to the highest capable level.

Third, PVCC displays high quality academics. Many of the school's professors come from prestigious universities desiring to share their knowledge with students.

Overall, Piedmont Virginia Community College is an excellent school to enroll at due to its realistic tuition, supportive environment, and quality academics.
I am currently enrolled in PVCC as a freshman, however I am also a sophomore in high school. PVCC has been a very pleasant experience so far. They have super nice staff and the professors are great. I plan to transfer after I graduate, I would like to go to GWU - that's the dream! So far, under my favorite 2 majors, courses transfer beautifully. I'm looking forward to what else PVCC has to offer.
