Virginia Western Community College Reviews
I am currently in my second semester at VWCC, and I really enjoy it! Overall, the professors really care about their classes and their students. All of my teachers have made it very clear that they have office hours for a reason, and they want you to come to them if you need help. On top of the support the teachers provide, there are dozens of other options for students who need a little extra help with their classes, two of which include a STEM tutoring center, and the option to have one-on-one tutoring once or twice a week. On top of all that, the school administration makes a big effort to keep things fun by scheduling activities that everyone might find enjoyable, from video game tournaments, to free movies in Whitman Theater. If you are looking for a comfortable, welcoming introduction to college, without having to live in a dorm, Virginia Western is the place for you!
I attended Virginia Western for two years and completed my Associate of Social Sciences degree before transferring to VCU to study psychology. The professors and staff were all great and really wanted to help me achieve my academic goals. The college has a fantastic Career Center, and I was able to give a little back to our community through service projects organized by Student Activities. Overall, I'd recommend Virginia Western to anyone of any age who is looking to update their academic resumés, or who simply enjoys attending classes and expanding their knowledge.
I enjoy how well my professors teach! I also enjoy how much of a quality education I am getting at such a low price. Virginia western is such a pretty, and safe campus that has its own police force! The lab classes are also great, and are very interactive unlike my high school, where funding wasn’t available for us to have hands on experiences.
