What Students Are Saying

2.72 Average Rating
Every time I have been at Northern Virginia Community College, people have been nothing but friendly. The kindness of the people in there is one of the things I like about my new college. Another thing I like about NOVA - Woodbridge Campus is the lake they have by the side. The lake seems like a really nice place to spend time in between classes and as a place to go relax after a stressful day. The third thing I like about my new college is that it is going to help me save so much money! I love the idea of going to NOVA for two years and then transferring to another college because the tuition is affordable and a good deal! There are many other aspects of NOVA I like, and I am sure there are many others to discover.

NOVA is an excellent school to attend to. It saves you lots of money, and helps you grow as a person as well. The location is perfect as well as their services.
