Virginia Western has amazing staff and a tutoring center for free use for all students. The tutoring center is extremely us full for if information learned in a lecture does not fully click, or if a homework problem is very difficult. The advisers are incredibly helpful and are very informative, if you do not understand what your requirements for your degree are you can make and appointment to speak to your adviser and they will clear everything up for you, also if you have any questions about anything the advisers will have an answer for you.
I like VWCC because even though it's a Community College, the school offers many curriculum and majors. Most of my professors/adjunct professors admit that VWCC students are receiving the same quality of education that their four year students receive. I have been challenged to grow and think critically. The location is convenient.
