Community colleges get a bad rap for being below par in the academic world. This perception contributes to the people who tend not to take their education at Virginia Western seriously. Those who are willing to put forth the effort to get involved in their classes, join clubs, and get to know their professors and classmates find that their experience is both challenging and rewarding. Despite the stigma that surrounds Virginia Western, the majority of professors is extremely qualified and makes classes interesting as well as edifying. The student body is definitely not your traditional mix of students. People of all ages and all walks of life come to VWCC to better their chances in the academic and professional worlds. Regardless of your specific reason for coming to Virginia Western, the school’s slogan, “We’ll get you there,” is extremely appropriate. It is widely acknowledged that most people are only at VWCC for a short period of time. Knowing this, the entire staff is dedicated to making your experience as memorable and fulfilling as possible, while getting you to the University you are hoping to attend or the job that you are hoping to land.

Virginia Western is nestled within the Roanoke Valley, surrounded by the incredibly beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Roanoke is a fairly developed city with a decent downtown club scene, and places to shop and eat are abundant. The mountains provide an endless array of activities year-round, such as hiking, swimming, and boating on Smith Mountain Lake, and camping to name a few. Virginia Western is truly what you make of it. Take the time to make long-lasting friendships and get involved in the Virginia Western community, and you will find that VWCC is a worthy investment in your future.
