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 amazing place to learn and grow! It is a small school with enough room to flourish while still retaining a close-knit, family environment. The professors are always happy to help students in any way they can with academics or personal struggles. Buildings are easy to navigate and the campus is lovely, especially near the student garden. I am glad to have begun my college career at Volunteer State!
This is my first year, and I love my college! I am glad I came here instead of going directly to a four year university. It's smaller, therefore it's easier to get around the campus. Also, easier on learning more on communication/interaction skills among students.
