Am learning a lot
The classes that you will take at College of the Albemarle will benefit you for the rest of your life. You will not have to take stupid classes that there is no point in taking. I attended COA to get my basic general education before transferring to get my Bachelor's degree. The information I learned at COA can be applied to everyday life, not just college classes.
Am enjoying being here
The students and faculty are so nice. Everyone speaks to you in the hallways as if they have known you for years. Also, the instructors really care about your grades. If you are having any problems at all, just talk to your instructor and he/she will help you through them. Actually, one of my english teachers, (may I say, the best ever!) works at a local restuarant and no matter how busy it is, she will always sit down and chat with you to find out if you are having any problems. Your instructors at COA are not just teachers, they are also friends. The Student Government Association also has many events to bring the students together. They host back to school parties and movie nights, which are a lot of fun. COA is very enjoyable!
Bang for the buck
COA is also inexpensive. You can get a great start to your education for a lot less money than a 4 year school.
Tips for prospective students
To prospective students, I would give you the tip to make sure you register early. Classes tend to fill up quickly. I would also encourage you to get involved. The Student Government Association is a great way to get to know the students and the faculty of COA.
Great for these types of students
COA is great for students who like a lot of one-on-one attention. I actually had a calculus class that consisted of only three people, me being one of the three. COA is also great for adult students trying to get back on their feet and get their education. COA offers night classes so that adults can work during the day and take classes at night. COA is great for everyone!
