As a online student at PVCC, I have enjoyed the advantages of academic freedom with online discussions with other classmates in multiple of my classes. I believe that having a conversation about "anything" has become abstract. I would suggest that all students are split into sections of 10-12 students, mostly likely categorized by "(fill in the blank)" and a faculty member facilitate open discussions online by giving students a weekly questionnaire (all sections would have the same question each week) and individual students would be required to post and respond to another student within their section. I prefer the questionnaire be approved by someone within the administration or the board of directors. This weekly exercise gives students and faculty an activity to look forward to each week to learning new things about their peers from a different perspective.
Review Piedmont Virginia Community College
PVCC is a great school to either get a start on your college education or to return and get back into the groove of things. The guaranteed admissions program is great for students who want a chance to get into the school they weren't accepted to out of high school and it's also cheaper to go to PVCC for 2 years before a University. The food has gotten a little better. The professors are wonderful. And the overall campus environment is welcoming. The only bad thing would be parking which can be a bad thing for all college or universities. They need more parking spaces available because in the morning it is extremely difficult to find a spot.
PVCC is a great school whether the reason for attendance is for transfer opportunities or for associates degree and or certificate. The teachers are very helpful for the most part and care about your academic achievements. Tuition is very affordable and financial aid is easy to obtain whether it be grant or loan. Every student I have spoken to loves it at PVCC, and recommends it to everyone.
