Why did you choose to attend Cape Fear Community College at the beginning of your academic career?

CFCC offered the best combination of reasonable tuition cost, small-sized classrooms, nearby location and the opportunity to transfer college credit to a 4-year university.

What were the advantages of attending CFCC for you?

CFCC has great instructors, tutoring in learning lab centers throughout campus and programs for multiple career options, ranging from technical careers to associate degrees allowing students to continue their education at 4-year universities. For me, being able to really get to know my instructors and develop professional relationships with them even after graduating has been a tremendous advantage. They have helped me guide my career and given me invaluable advice.

Would you recommend CFCC to students deciding upon college choices?

I would recommend CFCC to anyone who either wants a shorter path to a career or to students who want to transfer to a 4-year university. CFCC offers great education through caring professors, reliable tutors, and multiple educational resources. CFCC allows students the opportunity to discover career options, has affordable tuition and many accessible scholarship opportunities, and a great location!

What advice do you have for current CFCC students?

The biggest piece of advice I could give to any student is to take advantage of the resources available, get to know your professors, use the Learning Resource Center and labs to schedule tutoring, and when you discover your passion, to get involved within your community.

Would you recommend CFCC to students deciding upon college choices?

Yes, CFCC is a great choice; the value far exceeds the cost.

Take advantage of all the resources that CFCC has to offer. They have great support services in place to help you succeed.
