Kennebec Valley Community College is an affordable and friendly place to attend classes. The teachers are enthusiastic and helpful when one needs assistance. Being on campus gives me a sense of purpose and a feeling of accomplishment.

Being an older student I am comfortable attending KVCC, they go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable. They have other students available should you need extra help. They arrange a Community Day for new students in which they take you around the campus and show you everything.
