There are some great teachers at this school. Everyone is extremely willing to go out of their way to help their students. Several of them even offer study sessions in their own homes! They really care about what they're teaching, and it shows (in your test scores!). There is also a variety of tutoring options, which are so helpful.

    I have recently started at Vol. State as a freshman. I expected college to be hard, which it is, but not in the way I had originally expected. I've had teachers not show up for class. I drive an hour to school just to be sent back home because my teacher didn't show up. That was strike one for me at Vol. State. Then I go to my math class. The teacher hands out a paper with math problems on it and tells us to do them. I had no idea how to do any of them. I got started on one but couldn't finish it. She finally got up and started working them out on the board. In front of the entire class she couldn't work the first one out after expecting us to do it on our own. When class was over she told us to come back next week and she will know how to do it. So how are we supposed to learn if the teachers have no clue what they're teaching? That was strike two for me. The next one isn't as bad but if the other two problems hadn't occurred then it wouldn't have bothered me as much. I have an online English class. The teacher tells us what to do (supposed to anyway) and we do it by the due date. We get put into these online classes without a tutorial on how to work the site. So I asked my teacher in an email and even posted onto the discussion board as to how I could find the video I had to watch for a quiz. No reply from the teacher nor the discussion board where the entire class could see. That was strike three. I was on the Tennessee Promise scholarship going to school for free. I have decided to drop that and go into debt by going to another school. I highly recommend not wasting your time at Vol. State. Maybe if they were a bit more helpful then I would still be there. Yes I did go to the advisors and they wouldn't help me, thy were busy and would get to me another time. I needed them then so I wouldn't fail. So my rating of this school is very low. Thank you!

    Vol State is a great Community College. If you are looking for a college that is smaller, this is the place to attend. The professors, for the most part are great and are willing to help you learn the material, if you have questions outside of class these professors have their office doors open and are willing to help! Highly recommended.

    The people are very interesting and varied. The programs here are really exceptional, and just as good as any four year college. I've never been to a school that offered as many networking and educational opportunities as Volunteer State.

    I am under the dual/joint enrollment program for high school students. The campus is conveniently located to my home. The campus is not too large for a freshman. Lots of courses of study are offered.

    If you live in Sumner County, more than likely, you're going to end up at Volunteer State. I loved it so much. Everyone is so helpful and fun because majority of the people are familiar with the area.

    Great school, friendly staff and personalized education. Campus is being renovated and looks much better. Highly suggest attending for the education and lower tuition costs.

    While Volunteer State Community College is a small school nicely nestled right off Nashville Pike in Gallatin, it's a place for opportunities. With a wide range of programs and majors and numerous class times and days, going back to school has never been easier! Enrolling is one of the smartest choices you'll ever make, should you decide to apply at Volunteer State Community College.

    i love the school so far. they give you the attention and help you need to succeed. i am not very good at school, but vol state gives me the confidence that i can do well and i would recommended this school to anyone who asked. the class sizes are not that big and the professors are great. they are willing to help you succeed. I plan on staying here for my first two years of school but will transfer later. vol state also has great transfer counselors that help you every step of the way to make sure you are taking the right classes that will transfer to the school you are willing to go to.

    I graduated from High School on a Saturday and the next Wednesday I had my orientation! I was so excited and nervous but where I had taken some Honors Dual Enrollment classes in HS, I had an advantage against the rest of the nervous first timers! (I ended up having my General Psychology teacher for my advisor!). VolState is warm, welcoming, and friendly!

    My experience at Vol State has been a positive one. The professors are well educated and have a genuine compassion for the students they teach. All of my instructors have been fair and extremely helpful to me as I pursue my degree. If they sense that you have a true desire to learn the material, they will take the extra time to teach the concepts.
