    You get a quality education for a cheap price. Always do your general education credits at a community college

    Full time students get free YMCA membership while enrolled. Most of the restaurants in the area give you discounts or coupons just by being a student here.

    Excellent bang for your buck! The cost per semester hour is very reasonable. I spent 2 years at CVCC and spent about $4,500. Around $2,250 per year which is not bad at all considering you can transfer will all your basics or with an associates in science or art.
