Southern West Virginia Community & Technical College Reviews
Southern has very good professors, they enjoy their jobs. The advisors are amazing, they explain how they love their job and helping students.
I was scared when I first enrolled because of being out of school for so long but my advisor believed in me before I could believe in myself. They have tutoring for every single subject. Key note speakers who help tremendously. The staff in student services are really something special. I would recommend this community college over and over again.
SWVCTC has proven to me that a community college is the smartest choice when starting college. I am $0 in debt, and won't be in debt when I graduate!
