Central Virginia Community College is a good 2 year college, there are many students there to learn and get theirselves an education. As for me trying to get an degree to become an neonatal nurse, this college is aiding me to get to where I need to be. What I like most about this school is the friendly falculty and staff, they're there to help a student in any situation. Also my memorable experiences here at the school would be the spring picnics that the school has every year, I really enjoy attending them all. My tips for prospective students is to study, be prepared, be focused on what you're striving for, and to always be in class on time!

Overall Rating

Upon graduating from high school, I wanted to attend a college that would give the needed knowledge to succeed in life. Central Community College has given me this opportunity. The college is not so bug, that I fel like a number but a individual; however it is small enough to get personal with my professors. I want to be a productive citizen and feel I am on the right path at CVCC. It allows me to work to help support myself and still be able to apply myself to meet the challenges of a ever changing society. I suggest to anyone seeking a good higher level of education while trying to support oneself financially, it is the place. Lets face it, oue economy is in a downward spin, and finances play a key role, so why not get a good college at a more affordable rate. Thanks.
