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.

I have had an amazing experience at Virginia Western. The teachers have helped me tremendously. I have taken both on-line and on-campus classes and have loved everyone of them. I am very grateful for a college where I can get my Associate's Degree and then transfer to another college to receive my Bachelor's Degree. This college has been one of the best decisions I have made because it has provided me with exceptional help financially.

There was a private college that I had a lot of scholarships for but my family is very financially unfortunate and despite the good amount of scholarships I received from that school, we were still not able to pay the remaining tuition even though I wasn't going to live in the campus. My family decided to send me to a community college, and I didn't like the idea at first but I wanted to comply with my parents' wants to make life easier for them. They then enrolled me at the best community college near our area, and it was Virginia Western Community College. I don't regret being enrolled at all for I have come to love the school and the people in it. More power to VWCC!
The best place to get things done is at the library of Virginia Western. You can have individual rooms that cater to group studies or group discussions, or you could simply work diligently on your own in the quiet third floor. The second floor has more computers and it's a little bit more chatty because there are tutors who are helping some students with their classes. It's also become somewhat like a hang-out place for many studious students but it remains to be a very relaxed, hard-working atmosphere. It is very encouraging to see other students work. It makes you want to work too!
Dating couples are actually very respectful with each other. It's very rare to see two people slumped over one another and display a massive amount of PDA. I also noticed that couples encourage each other to study hard by studying outside of class together and working in the library alongside of each other. For the most part, I believe that the couples at Virginia Western Community College take their relationships as encouragement more than a distraction.
The worst thing about my school is the lack of food. There's only three places you can get food: Domino's, Subway, and Starbucks. Vending machines are excluded but sometimes they don't work as well either. Other than that, I don't have any other complaints. For a community college, it provides a really good program and accommodates students really well regarding their need of assistance from getting to know Virginia Western to finishing successfully at Virginia Western.

Virginia Western is known for the admission rate , finacial add being able to cover tuition completley as well as being a 2 year school.
From my short time after graduation I have come up with the idea, that to work and live to reach a large amount of money is to work and live for your death. In other words coming from the perspective of a highschool student with no knowledge or network of individuals to help put you in the postion to make a large amount of money is unrealistic. A better way to think would be to find the thing in your haert that you love , are passionate about and would do for free if need be. In highschool I would have argued why would I find something in my heart when I can many differnet things to to make money. I now can answer back by saying I have seen people come to work every day hating there job. I even know individuals who have attempted suicide becuase of the stress that thier job create. Do you want to be the next person hating their life in pursuite of money? I can tell you for a fact that if you dig deep in your heart and find passion with out a doubt the money will come.
I consider students not being pushed to find something that they love and are passionate about for career choices to be the worst thing about Western.

Virginia Western Community College is known for its affordable tuition, as well as a great place to either get an Associate's Degree or to get core classes done in preperation for 4 year Universities. Many, if not most of the students, go to Virginia Western to save money and/or continue to live at home.
I would tell myself how much different the workload is in college and how stressful it will be, so I could better prepare my study habits. I would have told myself to do some research on my career path and to really do some soul searching. College life is so much different than high school life, and high school doesn't really prepare one for college as much as I thought so. The movies and people lie when they talk about how much fun it is and how much freedom there will be. Bottom line to my high school me : Work really hard and learn to study properly!
I would consider the fact that there are not enough parking spaces to be one of the worst things about Virginia Western. Another downside is there isn't really a whole bunch of space or tables to eat lunch. They have a few spots to sit and eat, but not enough for everyone there.

First off, relax. The workload isn't so bad. You have to write more papers and read more, but it's nothing crazy. It's okay to make friends in your classes, but only keep the friends you really like around. French is tougher than it looks; definitely practice aloud. Missing one or two homework assignments because you're busy doesn't make you a bad person. NEVER miss quizzes and test dates, though.
Lines are long and the academic center is constantly packed. Can make it difficult to get things done.

Raymond, Despite what you may think right now, you are truly ok. The fear and insecurity you feel in yourself, mind and soul are all stemmed from a mental illness and as scary as that might sound, it will be the largest blessing for you. With the knowledge you gain through learning about yourself, you will do great things through advocating for others who suffer from the same. More so, your illness actually makes college and learning come easy! So suck it up buckoo and take the leap of faith! You can achieve so much for so many in this world if you just take that first step and i wish you could see that. So please, know that not only i believe in you but every person you connect with will as well and it's all due to the uniqueness of your brain. You will accomplish so much with so little and because of that, i'm proud to know you. Sincerely, -R
The speed at which changes happen but wth any public enttity, sometimes you have to be patient.

I think the advice that I would have given myself is to take advantage of EVERY single opportunity no matter if that benefitted me in a negative or positive way. Opportunities in the past few years good and bad, have taught me more than I ever knew possible. The opportunity to be a pharmacy technician and then find out that it is not my calling. The opportunity to try out for a high-quality dance intructor training program and then not make it. The opportunity to serve over 40 plus hours with a Dr. in Physical Therapy so I could get into a 28 person Physical Therapy program and then not get accepted. The opportunity to be accepted into a 38 person Respiratory Therapy Program but not attend the school because I now have options. In high school, I didn't have options because I didn't take all my opportunities to my full advantage. I will now be attending Roanoke College in Fall 2015 and majoring in Communications. I have never loved school more or felt more positive in my life to continue this journey!
The worst thing about my school is the guidance department. Since 2011, I have been treated terribly everytime I walk through the doors by the woman at the front desk. I have come into the office looking for a couple quick questions answered numerous times when I have visited the guidance department at Virginia Western Community College and each time she yells at me and brings me to tears. I am a college student that shouldn't have to worry about the guidance department being annoyed with me asking them questions about my education. That's their job.
I believe the type of person who should attend this college is someone who really isn't ready for a 4 year college yet out of high school. Someone who still has alot to figure out mentally should chose this school as their first option. It has helped me discover abilities of the things I never knew I was so great at! The type of person who wants to save money and be less stressed. You get to live at home and not have to worry about food, shelter, or unconditional love and suppot from your parents.

I would tell myself to relax! All the overthinking and stressing is unnecessary and will only make you think you're doing a lot worse than you actually are!
If anything, I would say the parking. Sometimes it is very hard to find a decent parking spot!
I have had some amazing professors. The majority of them in my degree program are engaging and thought-provoking.

I'd look myself in the eyes and tell that young girl to be brave. I'd say it's a big world but your determination is bigger and any dream worth having is worth working hard for. Dont be afraid to take that first step and to keep climbing even when it hurts or seems impossible. Dont let anyone stop you, not even slow you down. You are a strong and brilliant young women. You may make mistakes and fall short, but dont ever stop believing in yourself. Always dig deep and keep pushing because you have so much to keep going for. Stand tall in the face of adversity and have faith in everything you do. Life is only beginning and your story is unwritten. I'd give her a pencil, and tell her you may not understand it now, but you have the power to create your own destiny!
