What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a part of the Middle College program at Vol State which is a program where high school students enroll full time at college. We gain both high school and college credits and have the ability to graduate high school with an associates degree. Overall the school has great facilities and new technology which is free and available to all students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was reluctant on attending Volunteer State Community College. Why? Well, because their graduation rate is only 23%, and even for a two-year community college, that seemed very low to me. I was grateful enough to receive the Tennessee Promise, which gave me two free years of college, and Volunteer State Community College was the closest college to me that accepted the Tennessee Promise, so, reluctantly, I attended Volunteer State. After two years of my time there, this is what I have to say: You will have amazing professors, and professors that do not care at all, but you'll find professors like this everywhere, not just at a community college. Secondly, the amazing professors are truly amazing. They genuinely care about your college experience, and will do anything to make the next two years of your life the best they can be. Also, if you have the opportunity to attend a study abroad program... do it!! Volunteer State has one of the best (and affordable) study abroad programs there is. The professors are so sweet and caring, and it is an experience you will hold on to for the rest of your life. The menu does not change much, but the food is always fresh and hot. They are also constantly renovating campus, and they make it beautiful!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Volunteer State Community College is a place where I feel accepted, respected, but most importantly, educated. All the classes I have taken are and will be of great use for my future education and career. The entire faculty are very kind and have helped me even if I had a minor question. My professors have always been accessible to make meetings with and to stay in contact with. After my first year at Volunteer State Community College, I have learned a lot about the school and the amazing opportunities it offers. They have many clubs open to the students. As a result of joining one this year, I became President of the Civitan Club. There are many resources on campus to help students with their work, such as the Writing Center in the library. All the times I have been there, I have been assisted with help and the faculty who help are always kind and patient. Apart from active clubs and opportunities, the campus itself is beautiful and easy to figure out. I have enjoyed my first year at Volunteer State Community College and am looking forward to my second year!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is a great place and easy to get around. The classes I have taken have been wonderful and I can't complain. I wish more students that live within a certain distance was offered in-state tuition or there out of state tuition policy was a little different as it is very difficult and stressful to handle. Other than that the very few times I have been to campus it has been enjoyable and they offer a variety of things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, this is my second semester at Vol State and I absolutely love it! The classes are not that large so it's more of a cozy environment. Though I, myself am the few that prefer to stay to my own, the other students I have come across are extremely nice. There is 0 judgement at the campus. The environment overall is just great!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great starter and transition school for non-traditional students. I like that I can receive my associates with all the knowledge and resources I need to move on to a four year institution to achieve a higher degree in my major. I would recommend this school to anyone that wants or have to do school at a slower pace.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While Driving by Volunteer State Community College myself and my mother decided to do a quick day trip tour of the school. As we pulled into the main campus in Gallatin , TN the parking lot could use a little attention and the spaces are quite limited so this tells me I really need to get to the school early if I need a space close to entrance of the buildings. The School does offer off site classes and online availability. First and foremost I wanted to see if there was housing I could attend and stay on the college grounds . I was a little disappointed to find there is no housing since it is a community college and a smaller campus but to my surprise there is affordable housing within 5 miles of the campus. The students here are the ones who gave most of the information and it was most accurate and most helpful because they seem to right on the money with all information provided. While wandering around the campus the folks here are pleasantly happy and helpful , several students gave showed us around. They showed how much the students mean to Volunteer State because the school has open a food program called The Feed. The Feed is food program for students on the campus who may require help with food while at (Vol State) the nick name for Volunteer State Community College . The student can come whenever and all they need is student ID and The Feed is operational on all campus sites. Volunteer State doe snot have meal plan for students so you will need to prepare for eating off campus or bringing a lunch. While wandering around my eyes caught notice of the building and facilities the school has to offer. For a two year college it was quite nice. The school is very clean and update . The buildings are somewhat close together and labeled clear so you will know what direction you are going or where to locate what you are looking for. The library is fairly large and had all resource you may need to hit the books right down to the good ole internet and copy paper. The class sizes are smaller and for me that gives me the feel of one on one attention from professors. Extracurricular Activities seem to be everywhere here. Your eyes will catch flyers and poster of all kinds of events and clubs to join here at the school. The events seem to meet a lot off campus at the nearby shops and food venues that Gallatin, TN has to offer per the flyers and posters. The city of Gallatin has all kinds of great food to grub on from high end venues down to your mom and pops meat and three. I also seen where they meet at the shopping venues at Rivergate Mall and Hendersonville out door shopping. Both locations are located with 15 miles of the school. What can be better than great food and shopping all with in you reach of your college experience? Except the academics the school has to offer. One of the poster we seen was a list of academics and there was plenty , Dental Assisting , X-ray Tech, EMS , and continuing education was just a few names that was listed. I do believe this will be my two college that I plan to attend just because of the warm welcoming smiles not only from students but from some of the staff we spoke with. The staff that spoke with us and asked if we needed any information or direction was amazing as well. They gave us full attention and welcomed us like we were a part of the family already. My overall rating of the school is this the place to be. The school has the small town feel but a big enough city to offer your first college experience if you are planning to live off campus. The warm welcoming feeling and one on one small class rooms if you are up for that then this is your kind of place. I would recommend that anyone planning to attend do a tour and see for yourself. I do not think you will be disappointed.

The town is not a college town, therefore living accommodations are limited. Professors are usually present and helpful. Athletics not exceptional for the area. Campus safely is good. Not tons of young life activities happening.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Volunteer State! I've had almost a dozen professors so far, and only one of them didn't know me by name. There are many resources to help students succeed, like access to a librarian 24/7, multiple computer labs, tutoring for every subject, and a center specifically for English papers. The classes are rigorous, and I always end the semester feeling as though I've learned a lot.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Volunteer State is a quality campus that is close to home. The professors are attentive to their students and very willing to help students succeed. This is a great college to begin your higher education journey or return to the classroom. The student population is surprisingly diverse with students from various walks of life, which provides an enriched learning experience. I highly recommend this college.
