    I have loved the past few years that I have taken classes here at BRCC. There have been many teachers/professors that have been wonderful, and some that haven't been so encouraging or informing. Overall I would highly recommend Blue Ridge Community College with the professionalism of the advisors and the rest of the staff as well.

    It is one of the best community colleges in the state. It's a really good college for saving money, especially if you are going to be in college for a while. And even though its a community college the teachers are great.

    BRCC is very helpful for students who are looking to find out what they want to do in life. They offer many services to help students with their needs no matter what it is. All in all the school is very good, offering many different classes to help students start their College life.

    Do not take the Pharmacy Technician classes. The teachers name is Bill Wilkes and he works as a Pharmacist at Grottoes Pharmacy. He said it is really easy to get a job as a Pharmacy Technician. That is a complete lie because without hands on training such as a intern program which he does not offer Pharmacies will not hire you without experience.

    Blue Ridge Community College has some fantastic professors that truly want to educate students and see them exceed as well as some poor professors that simply teach. The difference between the two can be examined through how the teachers structure their tests and grade assignments. The teachers that wish you to succeed will design test to test your knowledge on the material rather then try to trick you on questions. When grading papers they will give you constructive criticism rather then plop an opinion based grade with no indication on how they came to that final decision. I have found it very important and useful for students to use websites like ratemyprofessor.com to help other students be wary of poor professors along with having some sort of legitimate evaluations of professors. My opinion on the matter is not simply biased, my wife who has graduated from William and Mary shares my opinions, as she also assists me in my studies and compares my educational experience to her own.
