What Students Are Saying

3.13 Average Rating
I rate CFCC a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. It is a great school with excellent teachers, smaller classes than a university, and it is a lot more afordable. I really like the two new parking decks they have recently added for students to make parking a lot easier as well.
