I love my school campus, I have access to a small but enriched library, also we have an online library too. We have two very good computer labs with high internet speed, and also have access to Wifi and we can check our grades progress and whatever information pertaining to the school, we have access to those information online even from your own personal devices.

The building is always clean and secured, we have a nice cafeteria and the parking lot is spacious and also secure.

My instructors are organized and better helps me understand the course contents, they direct and guide me when needed, are always prepared and goes along with the syllabus. My enrollment specialist was the best I have ever had and I also like my program director. The only thing is the number of students in my class is really small, maybe because I'm in the night section.

My school consist of a variety of students: high school graduates, working class people, retired people(looking to start a second career).
What I have found since attending Virginia College, is that for the most part, the students are real serious about their education and succeeding. I mean you have a few of the younger students still acting like they're in high school, so us older ones try to take them under our wings and mold them into better students. It works for some, those who want to succeed. There is a diverse background at Virginia College.

There are programs for back to school, the different cultural festivals that go on in our state, there are the special needs golf tournaments that we offer. We are constantly giving back to the community as well as encourage students to be on the student advisory board, be student president etc. We have dress crazy days all to support our students frame of mind to keep them happy healthy and striving to be better.
