Very relaxed classes for the most part. Some teachers aren't favorable but you can look them up beforehand. There is a shortage of teachers for some subjects, like calculus only has one teacher. Chemistry and physics are run by the same person also. Those were the only two really challenging courses I encountered. Some teachers like to make only 1-5 quizzes/tests the entire semester which doesn't help if it's a hard course. I had instances of not knowing if I was going to pass because of it. Love the relaxedness of it all though. The teachers care!
Review Rappahannock Community College
As someone currently facing graduation this May from RCC, this school was a great place to start. Small campus, small amount of people, and it's very personal. Many people don't have to remember their student number right away like other colleges. The staff are friendly and inviting, and there's always small events going on. You can get to know the people but I wasn't part of the social life on campus. I did mostly online classes which they have a great selection from. Some classes required by ODU distance (which is also on campus) aren't available at RCC and might have to be taken elsewhere. They also offer NOVA distance classes, which I didn't find all that great when I took them.
Most of the teachers I've had, have been great! The courses are set up good, with clear teaching. You can choose from online, hybrid, or in class classes. The sizes of the classes aren't to large.
