What is your overall opinion of this school?

The teachers are great but the campus is confusing. There is not a lot of shops and food options. The students are nice and the workers are welcoming. There is not a lot of parking and it is all far away. The tuition is not too expensive but they make up for it in the required books.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia western is a very good school to go too, the faculty here are helpful and are very welcoming. It is easy to find help, the teachers are always available, whether it is by email, office hours, or paying them a visit. The campus is not that big so it easy to get around. The food is kind f limit, they only have dominoes and subway only, however there is restaurants close to the school. The extra curriculum is also not that bad they occasionally h movies and have movies and other groups.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good college and probably the cheapest in Virginia. It feels like a very safe campus. The campus police are always walking around. They will even walk you to your car if you are taking night classes. All the teachers respond to emails within 72 hours. Most of the professors will respond within a day. All the professors keep regular office hours, which is nice. The school has a lot of online/distance learning options for classes. This is important as it serves a wide area. It also has alternate locations (from the main campus) where most core classes can be taken. The financial aid office has been very helpful with my questions. Overall, I think Virginia Western is a good college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Western Community College is an amazing school. The teachers are very qualified and very knowledgeable. The Campus is very easy to navigate. The campus is very diverse. The faculty and staff are very helpful. The only bad thing about this school is that there are far more faculty/staff parking spaces than there are members of faculty/staff, which means students have to park much farther away.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I entered Virginia Western Community College as a timid 17-year-old, fresh out of high school. I graduated high school in three years and chose to attend community college for two years on an academic scholarship. While Virginia Western lacks some of the qualities most 4-year universities have, Virginia Western equips students with the tools and experiences to thrive in the work force and the classroom. The composition of Virginia Western students is very diverse. Some students are working to earn certificates and enter the workforce while others, like myself, are working to earn associates degrees and transfer to 4-year universities to acquire a bachelor’s degree. The college even has guaranteed transfer agreements with several public universities in Virginia. The experiences I had at Virginia Western have given me the confidence and the knowledge to approach my future education head on. The college provides students with incredible academic resources, like free tutoring, to promote academic awareness and responsibility. Any student can thrive at Virginia Western. The diverse student body composition ensures there is a place for everyone. Additionally, the small class size and approachable professors allows new college students to slowly transition from high school to college. Looking back on my time at Virginia Western, I am so thankful for the opportunity to earn an Associate’s Degree through the college and gain a better understanding of what a college course load is like. As I transfer to the University of Virginia in the fall to study commerce, I am confident that I am prepared and ready to thrive because of Virginia Western Community College.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Western is a terrible school. This is reflected in the success rate. Do not waste your time or financial aid. You have to basically camp out in your advisors office if you even meet your advisor. You have to beg and plead to get things done around there and simple tasks are such a big deal around there. They add courses to your curriculum to prevent you from graduating probably a money racket to keep you in that hell hole. That place sucks and they actually try to call that place "Harvard on the Hill" yeah right! It takes you years to get what should be a two year degree. The professors there are of no assistance and really could careless about their students. I actually attended a four year college before coming to Virginia Western and it was a state institution. Although, it was a little more money it was money well spent. I didn't have to run around campus trying to get forms signed and begging to get things done and add this drop that, I would not recommend "Harvard on the Hill" to ANYBODY!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!!! YOU WILL NOT SUCCEED if you want to be a college drop out or waste years of your life the GO here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Western is a great stepping stone for students who wish to transfer to a four year school. It provides small class sizes and a personal learning environment. If you finish your degree with a 3.0 GPA, you are guaranteed acceptance into a number of larger public schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Western Community College is the best community college in the area. All the teachers I have had were great and always willing to help. My fellow students were good and I formed some new friendships there. The college offers several ways of helping students learn. The best of these is the math center which helps students with math, sciences, and programming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Virginia Western is a good stepping stone before attending a four-year institution. It offers basic classes that are good to transfer to other schools. Some students however view the courses as work and aren't too enthusiastic. However, once you get in the higher level courses it becomes more interesting and specialized. It's a good start to save money or is you are unsure where you want to go. But ultimately try to transfer to a four year school quickly.
