Southside Virginia Community College Reviews

I go to the SVCC in Alberta. Although it's a bit of drive from where I live, the mileage is worth everything! I absolutely love the campus. There's a tennis court open to students anytime, the pond is a perfect place to study under warm weather, and our hiking trail involves some of our most exciting adventures. Parking is simple (no fee necessary), thus you won't have to fight over a space. It also has free internet. A major plus, in my mind that is.

My only negative thoughts I have about SVCC involves the variety. There are only a few classes and clubs to choose from. When I first looked at the list, I was very disappointed SVCC didn't have a chess club or something else that attracted me. I ended up in the Environmental club, which is fine. I just wish there was more so I can increase my pallet.
Review Your College
Southside Virginia Community college is easy and convenient to apply to. The joint campuses that they have is great as well because it cuts down on traveling expenses for those that do not live in the Keysville and Alberta area. If anyone was looking at this school as a choice of colleges to attend I would definitely recommend it. The faculty are awesome. SVCC offers free tutoring, how better can that be. Awesome school with awesome staff
The classes I have taken so far have been great! They are organized and easy to follow. The steps to the nursing program are easily accessible online for the off-campus student and clearly explained in the information session (Great Concept)!. Wish the financial aid process was explained better online though. Overall, this school is ideal for the returning, working student - it's accessible, affordable and informative.
