What Students Are Saying

3.48 Average Rating
inclusiveness is very important to this college. there are opportunities, organizations, and clubs for literally any interest and if they don't already have one, anyone can start one. also, students are very important to the professors employed here; they will go out of their ways, beyond their calls of duty, to make sure a student is understanding, attending class, and enjoying themselves.
Julie from Wise, VA
It is a very good college to attend if you do not want the hussle and bussle of the city. It is located in a little and relatively quite town.
