I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of Volunteer State Community College. The professors have been wonderful, and have greatly influenced me to question everything, and to love knowledge. Before attending Vol State, I didn't have the love for knowledge I do now. I hated school and learning in general. After my experience at Vol State, I now look forward to learning new things, and I get excited about new subjects.

Overall, Volunteer State Communtiy College is a great place to advance your studies at an affordable price! Unlike many schools, at VSCC, the affordibility is not taken away by the classroom quality. The staff is very welcoming and friendly, and they encourage you to ask questions at any time you need help! The thing i like best at VSCC is the resourses provided for the students like: the amazing Thigpen library, where free printing is available for all VSCC students , which is a money saver!
