4 Students rated Chattahoochee Valley Community College


I have yet to ever feel that a couple of gold stars ever truthfully measure something's greatness. If I were to measure a human's greatness by these stars, it would surely fall short in doing so. Just as a human, college seems to be a living, breathing being formulated with intricate parts and designs. Constantly shifting and moving forward, my college, Chattahoochee Valley Community College, strives to pursue this beholden five star rating, while subtly denying its existence. In other words, CVCC understands the importance of trying to be "the" top junior college in Alabama. They continually aim to become better and smarter. This may be seen through their fantastic Math Lab, where tutors walk around just waiting to be asked a question. Perhaps, it could be seen in the high standard they hold themselves in the academic quality of their study programs. Either way, they know the importance of a five star rating, but they also know the importance of just being a "good" school. They do not offer the ritz of a gargantuan four- year university, and - surprisingly- they are okay with that. How do I know this? It could be a lot of things. It might be nothing. Yet, I can't help but feel that it is the students themselves that emit this understanding that it's okay to not be the next Harvard or Yale graduates. As CVCC students, it is known by all that this is not a glamorous school, but we do not care. CVCC's value lies in its academics, the quality of their teachers, and the smiles of their graduates at the end of their studies. We do not care that it is a few miles from civilization or that the Brassell parking is horrendous. We are just glad for the opportunity of a wonderful education in a relatively small town. That is what this four star rating means. Is it a perfect school? Absolutely not. Trust me though, it is a "good" one.


Application process is free and easy, staff is extremely helpful and motivated to get students to where they want to be. Tuition is priced fairly and defiantly cheaper than a 4 year university and they don't charge "convince fees" for taking courses online.


I have lived in Phenix City, Alabama since 1988, when I was 12 years old. Being a part of the first ninth-grade class at a brand new Central Highschool was not only exciting, but made me feel a little special. The faculty and staff take the time to ensure that the students understand the lessons, comprehend the work, grasp the concepts of the lessons that they are teaching, also help counsel students on how to improve their lives outside the classroom. In addition to providing assistance for students in the class, faculty and staff at CVCC try to provide similar aid for future students in the elementaries, middle schools, and junior and highschools. Even those future students who seem like there is no help for, they try to provide a way, so that every potential student is given a chance to succeed. With that in mind, Chattahoochee Valley Community College has deep ties to the community that I grew up in South Phenix City. And as a current student, I am grateful for the faculty and staff, both past and present.


CVCC is a warm and inviting college. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful to all students. Student to staff ratio is great and class sizes are small. There are security officers available to make sure you get to your vehicles safely in the evening and a bookstore on campus.

    To begin I would say " take high school more seriously so you'll be better prepared for the next level." Pass all your classes to your highest abilities. Take extra time to study, especially for a test.. Don't wait till the last minute to complete an assignment. Partying isn't a priorty, it's an option. Make sure you always register for classes on time, try to get there in the morning, so you'll have a better chance to get the classes you need. If you have Pell, check on it repetively till you know all your information is correct and in order. Don't wait till the last minute to drop a class. If you need a tutor start going to see them as soon as possible. If you register for classes early you'll always have the best selection. Make sure you get to know some of your classmates so you can get help if you miss a class or just need some assistance. College isn't as hard as it looks or seems, if you put your mind to it. You'll succeed if you follow these guidelines and the rest will follow.

  5. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    This is only my second day at school. I recently attended Columbus Technical College in which i studied Early Childhood Education. Chattahoochee Valley is a Division 1 college which has a basketball team. I transfered to this school in persuit of playing basketball this upcoming season. Since thay don't have a Early Childhood program my major will be General Studies, and I believe that if I maximize my potential playing basketball like many other players I will soon sign to a Division 1 college in which I can also finish up my studies in Childhood Education.
