WHAT I LIKED

This college is good for when you need to catch up on some missed credits, it also has a wide range of programs to help you when you need it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Most things were not explained, especially financial aid and classes. There sometimes is a disconnect with what needs to be done.

WHAT I LIKED

Going to VolState has been an awesome experience. Even though it is just a community college, I’ve enjoyed my time there. Almost all of my professors have been great, and I’ve made friends with several of the other students. I would recommend VolState for getting an associate degree and making the transfer to a university an easier, less overwhelming experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The online classes aren’t so great often, so try to go in person.

WHAT I LIKED

I liked how the professors actually cared about their students and the office workers did their best to help figure out any problems that might happen.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It's not a very big campus, but it is a community college and not a university.
