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.
Virginia Western Community College is pretty great! The staff cares about their students and wants everyone to succeed. There are so many opportunities for a student to get help in specific subjects any time of the day. Our buildings are clean thanks to our custodians. VWCC is great of you want an associate's degree or want to continue with schooling elsewhere!
Virginia Western is a great place to start your education. You can get two years of college for half of the price. They have an excellent program with Radford called the 2+2 and you are able to transfer credits and save money!
