4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: NOVA-Annandale campus is a community college. Although my parents and others said not to go there due to their pride and what not. I find it one of the best decision I made so far.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: You get your moneys worth when attending this college. You get the same education as you would at a 4 year university.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors care about you and I really love this place!!!

Overall Experience: I would say that going to NOVA is okay because it doesn't offer any higher level courses. I really like the campus as it's very neat and diverse. All the professors are well trained and helps us a lot. They also offer online courses, which helps some students a lot, especially who work full time. These are the reasons, I think Nova is a nice place to get your associates degree.

Overall Experience: NVCC is a great first stop in the college life. It's a better option financially, and if you do your research for professors, there are some good quality classes to be taken. Many different kinds of people come to NVCC, not just kids fresh out of high school. There are high school students doing dual enrollment and older adults with families taking online classes. There are some who are only there for two years and others who have been there for five. So I enjoy the variety of people as well as the classes offered at NVCC. There's quite a bit of room to figure out life at NVCC.

Overall Experience: Coming to NOVA has been one of the best decisions i made after high school. I like it because the whole atmosphere is relaxing and everyone is easy to get along with. I would definitely recommend it to others because its very affordable and they also provide transfer programs after two years.

Overall Experience: Community College can be very challenging if you focus on the negatives. As many of your friends go off to college you may feel like you are missing out on something but you will be fine. To be successful you need to find a hobby you enjoy doing. The only way to make Community College work for yourself is to keep yourself busy. One trait I am very grateful for at a Community college is that the professors care.

Overall Experience: Northern Virginia Community College is a great school!

Like any college or university, how great a school is depends heavily on the preferences of the student. As such, NVCC is a great place for any student looking for an affordable education while receiving a great education. The professors and staff are very helpful and dedicated, the campuses are beautiful and continually growing and expanding, and the student life reflects a a simple work hard play hard community.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a community college, not unique or anything but the costs are great when comparing two years here with two years at a university. The classes are well done, the campus is laid out well, but there isn't anything really special about it. It does feel a bit like a "get in and get out" school, however.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's one of the best things you can do for a community college. If you're looking to explore interests then this is an excellent place to do so. It does have it's challenges but any school would.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: NOVA is what you make of it. There are some great things about it, and also some not so great things.It's a good way to save money and prepare you for a 4-year school, but if you have other options take them!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love NOVA. They really care and want you to succeed.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school is helpful in getting everybody ready for their future whether it is a career or continuing through college.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most of teachers seem to really care about you, it's not just a job for them. It also helps that a lot of the teachers are in the profession they are teaching you. Because of that they can tell you about their personal experiences.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Counselors are very friendly, caring, & attentive. The school staff is always available to help, I haven't met anyone who worked for the school that was unhelpful. Northern Virginia Community College has a lot of locations around the northern Virginia area so it helps a lot of students young and older to take a class. It is affordable for most people and they are rated one of the best community college in the U.S. I am glad to be a student at NVCC, I'm doing my best to get as much help as I can to accomplish my goals.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I never thought too highly of this school before I enrolled. I have had some of the most well-rounded professors with real-world experiences and insightful knowledge. The school is always active in some topic of concern with our extremely diverse student class.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It doesn't cost much, so changing my major didn't hurt me financially.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: There's not much here, different campuses have different specialties. Where I would have thought that all locations would have at least a basic gym.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: They do not know what they are talking about. If you want to know about transferring to a college you will have to travel to that college. They tell you something and it is the complete opposite of what the college you are applying to accepts.
