    I definitely like being in the Annandale campus more so than the Manassas campus. In the manassas campus one can expect to get their work done and leave without saying much. The manassas campus is small so classes fill up very quickly. In Annandale there are more classes available because it is so big. You'll definitely be saving LOADS of money by attending a community college the first two years to get an associates degree. I would however recommend visiting the community college first. My main problem with the Manassas campus was that the classes I needed for my degree weren't always available in that campus, so I had to commute to the Annandale campus which provides more variety with their classes.

    I feel I will enjoy being there because I am close to home and I dojn't have to rush into a big university and have all the stress that brings. I feel NOVA will help me and prepare me to be able to ansfer to a university after two years.

    I usually attend the Manassas campus, but I have recently attended the Annandale campus. It is so much nicer than what I'm used to. But at the same time, it's also much bigger. The only place I know is how to get to my classroom, and that's it. I'm afraid of getting lost! The only thing I really do hate is it is not really safe walking off of the campus, as far as cars. I walk to the campus so that I don't have to pay for a permit. It is nice except there is not a lot of space between you and the cars. Also, there are constantly students in their cars coming in and leaving the the campus. I usually wait until there are no cars around me so I feel safe to walk a long distance across the road.

    I started out attending classes in-person, but I ended up having to become an online student fairly quickly. If you are a smoker this is an awesome campus, if not I would say really be considerate of how well you do with smoke. So, I enjoyed the people there- there is an awesome combination of students attending there. But, I really could not enjoy my physical time spent at school because I have bad allergies. So, I did not really enjoy being there.
