Mesoma - 08/12/2022

It is amazing for a community college but nothing beats a proper four year college, I appreciate the provisions that they make and accommodations they provide, they also give excellent services and education at affordable rates but like I mentioned a four year college is the best!

Megan - 06/29/2021

CPCC is a fantastic school. I took dual-enrollment courses at CP when I was in High School, and I learned a lot and felt more prepared for college than I would have without the CP classes. Many of the professors were very willing to help me if I ever had any difficulties. Many of my professors had a passion for teaching, and they wanted us to learn and enjoy learning.

Rachelle - 02/22/2021

Central Piedmont is a great college with a fantastic staff and administration that truly cares about their students. The instructors know what they teach like the back of their hand and the administration always focuses on student needs. For the student body, everyone has been absolutely kind and encouraging as everyone come from different backgrounds and from a wide range of life experiences.

Karmen - 11/02/2020

CPCC is a great school, but depending on the campus you attend, you may have a different opinion. I attended the Harper campus which is fairly small, but it is nice. The classrooms are large and the professors are nice. The work is not too overbearing and the after school activities are fun,

  9. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I wish I knew that it was possible for me to take college courses at this college as a high school student before I came to this school. Because I was born in Vietnam, I did not speak or understand much English in most of my high school years. As the result, I did not know that it was possible for me to take college courses as a high school student. If I would have taken some college courses while I was high school, I would have saved me some extra time and money for college.

  12. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    At CPCC there is such an great array of ethnicities and ages in the student body. There are mothers, fathers, and foriegn students, as well as the traditional eighten to twentytwo year old students. This creates such a great environment to develop new perspectives from the experiences other students have had. A mother's view on social problems is different from my own, and that challlenge to think outside of how I normally do is a priveledge most traditional colleges do not have.

  13. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about my school is that I keep seeing students driving around my school with very loud music on. These students are not only drive their cars around the school once. They usually circle around the school for three to five times before they leave everytime. I do understand that people could enjoy their music as loud and as much as they wish; however, i personally think it is quite disrespectful for them to distract those students who need quiet time to learn and study at my school.
