Piedmont Virginia Community College Reviews

Exemplary professors/instructors. The entire community is committed to the student's success - even if the student isn't all that committed! They are passionate about their subjects and about PVCC as a whole. The diversity was broad-spectrum: young/old, varying shades of skin, overseas students and more. Professors work hard to provide 'real-life' engagement through guest speakers and presentations that are available to all students. A truly remarkable experience.

The classes at PVCC are amazing! The class sizes are small and the teachers are great, and that's the most important thing- hence the 4 stars. But, anything outside of the classes like student events and sports is kind of boring. There isn't alot of school spirit because we have no sports and the activities aren't that exciting.
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.
