Volunteer State Community College Reviews
I really love the staff at Vol State! I’ve been to other colleges & they just didn’t seem to care about your success as much as they did your money. The professors & advisors are so helpful in making the transition from high school to college, as well as the transition from Vol State to another school very easy & not so overwelming. I feel like Vol state genuinely cares about seeing you succeed, & like other schools, aren’t just concerned about your money.
My experience in Volunteer State Community College was like no other. My first day of college was a successful and stress-free experience. Every corner of the school was someone to help you out. The school offers the best services for tutoring and for no charge! The professor help you a lot more then you think. If you have any questions, they'll always answer it no matter how embarrassing or dumb the question might be. The College breakfast and lunch are one of the best meals I had in any any other school and for the right price.
VolState is an excellent community college that offers endless educational opportunities. Although the school is relatively small, it is filled with helpful, caring staff and friendly, optimistic students. Go Pioneers!
