Virginia Western Community College Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


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.


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.


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.


Lines are long and the academic center is constantly packed. Can make it difficult to get things done.


The speed at which changes happen but wth any public enttity, sometimes you have to be patient.


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.


If anything, I would say the parking. Sometimes it is very hard to find a decent parking spot!


The worst thing about my school would have to be that since it is a community college, i pretty much know everyone here, i would prefer to transfer out somewhere else and meet a whole variety of new people.
