Volunteer State Community College Reviews

Volunteer State Community College was a great place to start my college journey. The environment was welcoming from day one and the staff was always ready to help. I had several professors that went above and beyond what was required to assure that their students received a quality education. The facilities were always clean and available. There were several on-campus clubs, Long Hollow Young Adults and Phi Theta Kappa, for example, that were very active and helped to make my experience great! I would highly recommend this college for anyone looking to earn their associates degree, earn a degree in one of their specialized 4-year programs, or looking to go back to school, really anyone living in middle TN!

What I enjoy about Volunteer State Community College is the accessibility of resources on and off campus. The professors are kind and willing to help their students. Their office hours are always posted and they will always try to make time to meet with their students. The campus itself is beautiful and comfortable, every resource is with reach which is very helpful and convenient. There are many opportunities fro students to engage in clubs on campus. One thing I would like to change is the engagement of students on campus. Being President of the Civitan Club, our main goal right now is to have students participate more and engage in activities the campus and clubs host. Overall, Volunteer State Community College has given me a delightful first year of college and I am looking forward to my second year!
Volunteer State Community College is an exceptionally refined school. I attended after graduating from high school, and found that Volstate served as an excellent segue into studying at University.
The teachers are top rated and the student body is diverse and peaceful.
The campus is well laid out and easy to navigate, and classrooms were, for the most part, a decent size for the student capacity.
Volstate offers many clubs and organizations that any student can participate in including the Volunteer Club, The Green Team, and the Settler Student Newspaper.
Overall, my experience at the school was amazing and I would recommend attending to anyone looking for a quality, affordable education.
