Review Virginia Western Community College
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.
I, personally, did not have a very easy time simply setting up my schedule. For some reason my account was all messed up and I couldn't even get in to apply for classes during the summer when they were doing a workshop for it. I ended up having to go through one of the helper's accounts to sign up for classes. Although it was a very frustrating experience (and there have been more similar to it since school has started), I'm still grateful for all the staffs'/professors' help.
