The college has potential, but I feel I am not receiving the best education as possible. Mostly, the staff is great and strive to push academic excellence, but I feel the college itself just pushes for more money. The student body is overpopulated and classrooms are very crowded. I feel more like a mule than an individual student at my college.

    This school is very unprofessional. Does not return calls, disrespects students and is not in anyway personable. Do not recommend.

    Overall, for a Community College, I have really enjoyed my time here. You can tell that the professors here really care about you and your success. I've felt completely comfortable here during my two years.

    This community college is perfect for those who aren't ready to venture far away from home yet. I enjoy the college campus, the friendly faces and someone holds the door open for me everyday. I like the freedom to be able to change my classes around to best fit my schedule.

    I enjoy this school, the teachers are really there to help you achieve your best regardless of age and background. More options for evening and online classes need to be considered for those students that cannot attend class during the day, and have families at that need them at night. Besides that, there is a great selection of classes available to take.

    This school is a good starter school. Very good if you trying to get back into the school life. Very good for transfer students.

    CVCC Has most programs of study available and the teachers are knowledgeable in their fields as well as helpful in any way possible. CVCC does expect you to figure out many aspects of enrollment,admissions,WebAssign and schedules on your own or by asking other students/teachers as part of your learning process, but they do give enough information for each aspect that you should be able to figure everything out with minimal trouble. CVCC seems to be much better than the other local colleges of the same type in many properties and they offer much more programs of study and allow the Federal Loans when the other schools in the area refuse them.

    Catawba Valley Community College is one of the best in the state with professors genuinely wanting to see students succeed. It is accompanied with many clubs and athletics programs. Each person gets a personalized agenda but all students will have the support and resources needed to graduate.

    A great place to study. With teachers that are eager to teach and make the best out of you. A place where you can make friends and help the community at the same time through college clubs.
