    Lord Fairfax offers a decent amount of services for its students. It has free tutoring, teachers available during office hours, and a place for students simply to ask questions who don't want either extreme. It has a decently sized library with plenty of reading material. Credit hours are much cheaper than at a 4-year college. There are plenty of freshman level courses available for the taking, but slots for sophomore level classes are fairly limited. Most of the teachers are friendly and very personable but not everyone. Compared to high school, there is a much more relaxed atmosphere. It also has a great bookstore available for students' needs.

    The best part about going to community college is that the tuition is a lot cheaper. There are scholarships and school loan opportunities if needed. It's always great too that you have the option of living at home.
