I love going to college here. I have yet to have a bad teacher. General Biology was a great class.
Angelina from Hickory, NC
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.
