4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Choosing a major entering college is a tough decision, but LFCC offers several different degree and certificate programs that allow every student to work toward something. The amount of work that students must complete is manageable, although very overwhelming at times. During the first year at LFCC, most time was spent completing general education courses, and the upcoming year will be spent focusing on my major. This process seems pretty typical of colleges, so I like this process.

Academic Experience: Students are never limited at LFCC. There are so many classes available to students, and the registration process for these classes is relatively easy. The workload truly depends on the professor and although overwhelming at times is pretty manageable. Some programs that I really like are the honors program, the international honor society, and the guaranteed acceptance program.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The classes that are offered at LFCC are available at several different times so that anyone needing to take classes are able to. The classes and curriculum are flexible, as well as the professors and staff. The school makes classes and curriculum available to everyone because they want everyone to succeed.

Campus Resources: The resources at Lord Fairfax Community college are astounding. The student success center and financial aid office are always providing students with helpful tips geared toward success. The library is full of computers, study rooms, conference rooms, reading material, and library assistants. The free in-person and online tutoring, along with free writing center assistance are priceless resources that make LFCC even more likeable. This school is truly focused on the future of its students and is worth every penny.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Lord Fairfax Community College is one of the best decisions I have ever made. With university tuition so expensive, I knew that I would be attending a community college. However, I had no idea just how much I would enjoy my experience and how comfortable I would feel attending the school. Tuition is probably the number one concern for college students, so community college is an obvious choice for someone looking to save money. Not only is the tuition more affordable than universities, but LFCC offers numerous resources for students and quality education. The library is full of computers, conference rooms, study rooms, reading material, and assistance all for the benefit of the student. The student success center is full of kind people who are knowledgeable and willing to guide students down the correct path. The financial aid office staff are always full of ways to help students utilize scholarship opportunities and financial assistance.The professors are passionate about their subject and truly care about your success. The location is perfect, the professors and staff are wonderful, the facilities are clean, the resources are incredible, and LFCC is definitely worth my time and money.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: They have a good program for what I want to do and a good reputation for the quality of education. I have not transferred any credits.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am new to the college, but I have friends who go there and they are happy with the teachers and staff. I think the main thing that makes it unique is that it's a small town college that truly cares about the students and you get the personal attention you need to succeed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Campus is growing. They have a lot of different programs and everyone there is very helpful and friendly. It's a small town community college that cares about its students - not like some of the larger colleges where you are a number.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: They don't have Saturday schedule - need to have availability to do work on a Saturday.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: With online access to almost everything necessary for college success and a resourceful library network, LFCC assist you with your goals of success.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Registration process was very personal. Meeting with an academic advisor and weighing out long term goals with real life options was a big help in deciding classes and class load.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body at Lord Fairfax is one of the most diverse and in different categories. On this campus are people from different walks of life, currently on different levels of life, from different cultures, of all ages merged into a diaspora of learning. The different programs allows for a diverse network of communication for both short and long term goals in college success.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: They don't advertise any of the sports or their games so there's no school spirit for it. The student center is very loud and just a place for people to go and talk so it's very distracting for people who are trying to do schoolwork. The library is smaller than a four year university's library. The general campus is very boring so it's uninspiring to be there.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There aren't many computer labs, printing off things costs .50 cents per page. The reliability and speed of the network is okay, it wasn't overly impressive. Wireless access is a headache in itself because there are multiple accesses that are named LFCC but only one is public and doesn't require a password. You can bring your personal computer to classes but sometimes you're not allowed to use it.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm just going for my general studies degree so there's nothing overly unique about it.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Some professors are kind and willing to help students while some are not. The curriculum sometimes doesn't seem at all helpful.

3 College Senior

Student Body: There's a mix of students at LFCC, they're just like any other student at a four year university just less goal oriented than the four year university student.

2 College Senior

Campus Quality: There's nothing interesting or unique about Lord Fairfax. It's a dull campus that isn't modern or inspiring. I can't wait to leave.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: There's nothing unique to their online classes. Workloads are sometimes heavy because the teachers place unrealistic expectations on the students. The registration process is alright and like applying for traditional classes. I didn't even know some of the professors when I took their classes. I didn't really interact with any of my peers online.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The people in financial aid aren't at all helpful, it's hard to get a hold of the academic office, the business office, or anyone at the college in general. Some of the professors aren't helpful while some are actually interested in what they're teaching and the students that are taking their class.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Some of the classes I wanted to take, I wasn't able to because of prerequisites that I had taken in high school but didn't transfer over to the college. Some teachers aren't at all helpful while some are the best I've ever had.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I've paid every semester with money from my college fund and the school marked it as a scholarship and it took days past the due date to actually get into my account and pay for my classes. The same with the scholarship I was awarded in my freshman year and the scholarship I was awarded for my sophomore year. The financial aid office wasn't very helpful in telling me why it was taking so long for it to get into my account. While some classes were worth the money for tuition, some weren't worth the money I paid to take the class.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: nursing program has not lived up to my expectations.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: only one person in the financial aid office is helpful - Karen
