My classes are not too heavy this semester, which is great, starting off this semester I would of have been taking 6 classes, but my counselor advised me to take it easy and drop 2 of them and just do 4, which is less stressful to me, and I'm still considered to being a full time student. The programs that the school provides are appropriate to me, some are more challenging than the others, but overall they're good programs. I have my share of professors that I prefer to have being known to many of them and having taken their classes before. Many of them teach in a different way and I just choose to pick the teacher that teaches just the way I like it! The workload isn't too heavy, but you just have to focus on doing the work rather than slacking off on it. My classes are not too overloaded they're just the right size because I'm the type of person who doesn't like a classroom full of people and having it crowded.

At CVCC, I have found the professors to be professional, they want their work and expect you to put forth every effort to absorb what is is needed to make you successful. There have been occasions that they have been more understanding to my circumstances, and I appreciate that more than they will ever know. Sometimes is nice to know someone really cares.
