    Great for these types of students

    People who want to work in hospitality, healthcare, or cosmetology without going to school for 4 years.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your homework. By this, I mean talk to different schools and find out what makes them unique, then decide which one is the better fit for YOU and YOUR lifestyle because it is your decision to make and to live with for better or for worse.

    Will enjoy being here

    I originally decided to apply here in case I didn't get accepted to the program at the local community college. But after visiting the campus and talking to the admissions and financial aid people, I found that Virginia College is probably a better fit for me!!!!

    Great for these types of students

    If really want to get your feet in the door of your career, this is really the school for you. I am in the Surgical Tech program and I love it so far, and I know I will be successful in my career because of Virginia College.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always do your homework when it comes to colleges and always ask questions no matter if you feel they are dumb. It it can be expensive, especially if you are like me and want to go after you B.S. So look at scholarships and grants you qualify before you commit.

    Bang for the buck

    I work part-time and going to school. It can be more expensive then a community college but there are better quality students, instructors and connections for a career.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love it here! If I have a problem it is fixed quickly.

    Am learning a lot

    Yes, when it comes to my career and medical knowledge I have gained so much in the last few months.

    Great for these types of students

    virginia college is great for all types of students! the academics they provide along with the help available to students, will help support any type of student.

    Bang for the buck

    virginia college employees have been very impressive to me, and that alone is worth all the money in tuition. the advisers have been kind, decent employees that do all they can to help. the mini courses i have previously undergone, have already taught me pertinent information.

    What to do for fun

    i can do all sorts of things for fun while enrolled in virginia college. due to the fact that i am pursuing an online career, i can log on whenever is convenient for me, which is a definite plus. fun and games is not my main concern however, providing for my family is.

    Food and Dining

    yet again, i cannot comment on food and dining, as i am an online student. i can only hope virginia college's food and dining is as good of an experience as i have just talking to members on the phone.

    Dorm Life

    i honestly cannot comment on virginia college's dorm life. i am an online student and i have no clue whether they have dorms or not. i would assume the dorm life through virginia college would be a decent experience however.

    Academic Rigor

    i love virginia college's academic rigor. they are always excited to help, and have very nice encouraging words for students. virginia college gives students plenty of resources, and help, i love that.

    Tips for prospective students

    i have only a few tips for prospective students for virginia college. first, i would suggest that a future student does not wait until the last minute to find funding for college, as it gets kind of 'sticky wicket' when trying to cover all of your bases. second, i would suggest that a prospective student listen to everything their college advisers say, and try to soak it all in, because the information they give you is copious amount for such a small window of time to complete tasks in.

    In three sentences

    i would rate virginia college at about an eight out of ten at this current time. the only thing i do not like about virginia college is the fact that they call me about 5 times a day, but i guess that is to be expected when pursuing an online vocation. the people at virginia college have been very nice and extremely helpful throughout my enrollment process.

    I love the small classroom sizes. There is more one on one hands on training. They really go out of their way to assist you from the time you walk in the door.

    I love Virginia College and the hands on experience I get there. I rate it a 10, but they keep getting a lot of negative media attention based on people basicly not getting jobs; and left with student loans. SAD! But , it halso has to do with your background checks and if you fail those, you can't work in the medical field.

    Campus Safety

    They have camera's EVERYWHERE and several security guards. You have to have an ID badge to get inside the school. The only place a non-student can go is to the front desk. I feel VERY safe and secure there. I do not even have to worry about my car in the parking lot!

    Greek Life

    None

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs we have are the one's associated with our major. We also do things to help the community (collecting can food, volunteering at retirement homes, collecting school supplies for a certain school in need).

    Great for these types of students

    Students who are serious about what they want to do as a career and willing to put in the work it takes to get it done. If the student has ANY doubts at all, this is not the school for them.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I do not think there are any unusual traditions or locations we have on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    It costs a lot to go there, but financial aid goes out of their way to find you the money to attend- money you did not even know was out there!! It is expensive, but it is worth EVERY dime you pay. It is worth the just the personal attention you get from the entire staff.

    What to do for fun

    It is a small school, so we do not have any sports. You get to know all the students that are in your program and we have get together all the time and have little success parties. The school also throws parties for all the students all the time- and you get extra points in the class you were in when they had the party.

    Food and Dining

    The cafe they have is very good and it comes from our Culinary School, which they are very supervised and the food is out of this world!! The prices are very reasonable.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms

    Academic Rigor

    You stay busy, even though you only have 3 classes. It is fast paced, but if you get lost or need help, the instructors will work with you for as long as you need it to help you get caught up.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get to know your admission's personnel and ask ANY questions you might have- do not be afraid of them- they will become a good friend during your time at the school. Meet with the program director and find out all about what you will be going through, resources that are there for you, and ANY other questions you want to know, do not be afraid of asking asking ANYTHING!

    In three sentences

    The instructors take a personal interest in you as a person, not just a student. The Program Director does all she can to see that you succeed in your program It had been 12 years since I had been to school and was unsure about my decision, forgot how to study for tests and all the other basics you need to succeed in school, but everyone took time to help me and now I feel more confident and have all A's-NEVER happened before

    Food and Dining

    The campus that I am attending is all in one building, so there is no restaurants. Luckily though, the campus is located downtown and nestled between a whole bunch of great cafe's and local restaurants.

    Dorm Life

    Virginia College is a private college and as far as I know, they do not offer dorms for students. This is fine by me though, because I still live at home with my parents.

    Academic Rigor

    I toured the school during the night classes, and I noticed how small the classes were! All of the classes are no more than 5 students in a class and I love that! That shows me that I am able to get the one on one attention that I need, and that will help me in the long run.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be yourself! The staff at Virginia College are there to help you and to make sure you are making the right choice. Also, make sure you do a lot of research to make sure you're sure this career path is what you want!

    In three sentences

    The last college that I attended left me feeling out of place, and lost. Since being accepted into Virginia College, the staff there has made me feel incredibly at home, and made me feel like I was finally on the right track for my education. So far I am incredibly pleased with my experience with Virginia College, and I am so excited to finally be able to work towards my career!

    Campus Safety

    I am not concerned with campus safety because I am an online student. However, I do know that we receive a campus safety report on an annual basis.

    Greek Life

    I am not involved with the Greek Life because I am an online student.

    Clubs and Activities

    I am not involved with any clubs or activities in my college because I attend online classes only.

    Great for these types of students

    Virginia College-Online is a great educational setting for students like myself who has a busy family life, children, and full time employment. The ability to attend classes in my home where I am still able to be a wife and mother is important.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I do not attend a campus school because I am not a traditional college student. At age 40, I don't think I could quite see myself on a college campus full of young people.

    Bang for the buck

    Because of my hectic schedule, I believe I am acquiring a great education in the field for which I work. Without the opportunity of an online education, I would not be able to go back to school.

    What to do for fun

    For fun, I spend alot of extra time at the football field, baseball field, basketball court, and volleyball court and many, many band concerts supporting any of my three little angels in whatever extracurricular activity they are currently involved with.

    Food and Dining

    Again, I attend college online because of my family and work. Therefore, my food and dining consists of homecooked meals with my family every evening.

    Dorm Life

    I attend college online because I have three kids actively involved in extracurricular activities and I work full-time. Because of this, I live in my home.

    Academic Rigor

    Students are held to a higher standard of learning. Textbook information is presented and lecture material and outlines are presented but it don't stop there. Professors go further and present outside material so that students can apply what is presented in the classroom to real life situations.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would say for students wanting to go back to school after being out 20+ years, communicate with your professors on a regular basis. They are there to aid you with your college experience to succeed. Stay on top of your classes and check in regularly.

    In three sentences

    The ease of navigating through the online classroom is very user friendly. Most professors in the upper level classes are very encouraging and readily available to answer questions. Classroom lectures and assignments are clearly laid out on a weekly basis so students know what is expected of them.

    Tips for prospective students

    Never give up on your dreams even if it seems you cant go to college you can if one college shuts you down try another because that's what happened to me because of the financial part but one another door shuts another really does open just make sure you keep your goals in mind and never give up on yourself.

    Campus Safety

    One of the unique things I have always really appreciated and loved about my campus is that there is constantly an actual police officer in and around the building from the time the school opens, til the time it closes every single day. I have Never felt unsafe there. They are always willing to walk you to your car or open the door for you so there is a pleasant person on duty every day!

    Greek Life

    Virginia College does not currently have a Greek life.

    Clubs and Activities

    As I mentioned before, Virginia College has a club for every program that is offered at the school. It is in your best interest to try and attend the meetings and get involved if you can, because it will also prove note worthy on the resume you build later upon completion of your program.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are like me and you have a clear idea of what you want to do, and you're ready to devote plenty of hours a week to get there without all the extra that comes with a community college, then Virginia College's has the most advisable and patient admissions department I have ever seen Period. They also act as sort of career counselors to help get you on the fast track to a new rewarding career that will best fit you without just shoving a bunch of programs in your face and hurrying you for decisions. Virginia College is not for someone that is only attending college because someone in their family pressured them to and they really didn't want to do it.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Virginia College is always seeking out new ways to keep students interactive and as we grow as a school, there will be many more exciting opportunities for the Staff, Faculty, and Students.

    Bang for the buck

    You remember the saying, You get what you pay for right? I sometimes hear about people I've known going to other schools that offer similar if not the same programs whether it be students or faculty. When they start attending or working at Virginia College they tell me about how much more they like it over the last place they were at. They have since stayed and not transferred again. I still see those same people walking the halls. I don't know about you but I'm paying for Quality education and not some high school experience in which the faculty and students can't wait to leave and every body's miserable as if their parents made them go.

    What to do for fun

    The most rewarding thing you can do for yourself outside of maintaining a great GPA and professionalism would be to join your programs organization. Every program offered at my school has its own organization and that will help you to be more active in fundraisers for charities or just getting out there and helping others in need. I am currently the president of the MASO (Medical Assisting Student Org.) and I can tell you that I am very proud to be able to devote my time and efforts for great causes!

    Food and Dining

    There are no cafeterias offered at this school

    Dorm Life

    There is no campus housing at this school.

    Academic Rigor

    If you're gonna get done with any college in less than 2 years you need to know that the work load is not going to be easy and quick. You will need to devote 2 hrs of homework for every 1 hr of class that you have.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come with a positive attitude and don't think that you may not get employed just because someone else did not utilize all of the resources that were given to them. Also DO NOT start unless you can devote plenty of time for it because this is a private school that doesn't waste a bunch of time of random prerequisites. You will be in and out in less than 2yrs and it can only happen if you are not taking quarters off and not planning on being too busy for it.

    In three sentences

    This school has consistently impressed me from the time I started til now in all these aspects. The students seem to really have a focused academic mindset while in the classrooms and hallways, so there doesn't seem to be all those distractions they found in other colleges. The instructors are there for you and really give you all the tools you need to succeed.

    Nothing really too unusual.

    Bang for the buck

    A little pricey (at least to me) but well worth it when it comes to what you learn in class. It's more about learning stuff you will actually use in the work force. In a football analogy, you learn way more than just the x's n o's of your career.

    What to do for fun

    The whole campus is full of fun people in general. There are numerous spontaneous events throughout the school year.

    Food and Dining

    I usually cook my own food so I really don't have a valid idea about this subject.

    Dorm Life

    The academic curriculum here is fantastic. It is a vocational school, so what you major in is what you learn right away.

    Tips for prospective students

    Plan ahead. Take the time to research any schools and career fields you go into. Pay attention to government, GDP scores, NASDAQ scores, and unemployment rate while in school. These can tell you the likelihood of you getting a job after you're finished with school. Most of all, chose a career not a job (just over broke). Find one you will be happy in.

    Virginia College is better than the last school I attended. The staff are very upbeat and understanding of hardships. The curriculum here is just fantastic in that you learn based on the class's weakest link, or less knowledgable student.

    Education is expensive so always make sure you are looking at the full picture. Are you going to be able to get a job? Are your credits transferable to other schools? Look at how much you are being charged per credit hour compared to other schools.

    What to do for fun

    There is really nothing to do for fun at the school that I am aware of.

    Food and Dining

    A onsite cafeteria would not be a bad idea for this schools since some students are at the school all day depending on where they are traveling from. The vending machines cost way to much, and if you want something well you have to go off campus, and breaks are only 10-15 minutes so that does not give you much time to grab anything nutritional.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorm life everything is either night, or day classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you ask questions before you enroll, and make sure that this is the career path you want to take. Also check out the type of jobs you will be able to apply for once done before you enroll, and what kind of experience you have to have in order to land that job. This will help you to not waste your time, and save you money in the end.

    In three sentences

    Getting into the door, and getting started with school is fast, and great. I do feel that the school should change their accrediting region so that students are not wasting money if they want to go to another college. Because a lot of schools do not take credits received from Virginia College. So you basically have to start all over again if you want to get a even higher education, and that causes you to put yourself in even more debt.

    We do have campus security. They are very helpful too! I have seen security guards in the rain assisting students with flat tires, dead batteries, cars that have ran hot and etc. They are very serious about their jobs too. If you don't have the proper identification you will not enter the building. What makes this so great is that it is done in such a professional manner.

    Greek Life

    If that means Fraternities or sororities. We don't have those. But that would be nice.

    Im not here long enough to explore those areas. The ones that I have attented I have already elaborated on them.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a smoking area outside the break room.

    Bang for the buck

    I have attended other colleges before but my experience here has made the difference. I have had instructors at other colleges to just give home work and not explain it in detail. The instructors here at Virginia College are totally different. They make sure that you understand the material that you're given. We have class discussions after and during every lecture. The office staff are also very involved. Such as the Dean and Program Directors, they sit in from time to time to make sure that we are having an interactive discussion. We also have incentive days where we do activites and compete with other department on campus to see which department is more active. We also have appreciatation day for everything. The staff makes us feel as though we are valued.

    What to do for fun

    We are just two lights away from the mall. As I fore stated your're not in class for that long but if you wanted to go out for a nice time then you can go there. We also have a skating rink across the street.

    Food and Dining

    Of course since we don't have dorms we don't have a cafe. Our lounge is nice and we have vending machines. We are basically in the heart of Florence. Anything that you can think of is probably five miles or less if you wanted to get a snack. That's a good thing because we don't have long boring classes. By the time you get hungry it's time to go home. Sometimes during incentives they school will provide lunch.

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately, we don't have dorms. If we did life of campus would be a breeze. There would definately be more students enrolled here because this is a great school.

    Academic Rigor

    There isn't much I can say on that beacuse I haven't had much diffitculties, but I have had quite a few challenges. I have been faced with being placed in a class or two that was a bit much for me to handle. But in my doing so I have benn walked through it all the way. There has been times when I have had car trouble and my program director Offered to take me home.( I reside in Florence county and she lives about two hours and 30 minutes away.) That's let me know that she wasn't gonna let me make excuses for not coming to school.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are serious about attending college then this is the place to be. The staff here are serious about catering to your needs in whatever your field of study you may choose. They will do everything in their power to see the you are satisfied the the choices you make.

    Very intense because there is no face to face contact. Studies and course assignments are all there but the student must take the time to go over every detail to get the full picture.

    Tips for prospective students

    Online courses are deceptive, you may think they are easier than going to class (as I did) but they are more intense and I personally feel I get me out of my class. As a student you must have the will and discipline to set adequate time aside for studies.

    In three sentences

    Courses are very thorough, faculty and staff are very helpful on questions I may have as a student or to help understand how the online courses work. Student adviser stays in touch to make sure I am doing well and understanding courses.
