there is a pretty good range of academic flexibility. I didn't have a problem making my schedule work around my job and activities.
College Sophomore 2013-11-04T15:25:53Z
Its just okay. It is an average community college.
College Sophomore 2013-11-04T15:24:05Z
Our school does reach out to students the best it can but it just feels like high school and my classes are rather boring

They offer a lot of help with your online courses and make it accessible to you.
College Junior 2013-09-15T22:58:27Z
Being at a community college, everyone is trying to get an associates in something so all of us are on the same paths.
College Junior 2013-09-15T22:57:13Z
All of our professors are amazing and treat you like adults and tell you that it is up to you to make a good grade.
College Junior 2013-09-15T22:55:33Z
We are all there to get the job done. To graduate and move on with our lives. There are people from all over here at the community college.

The mymathlabs is always having problems since everyone in a math class or delevepmental math class are all using the same site. But as far as other resources go i feel they have a lot and their mind is in the right place about them but they close too early. Some of us have really bad hours and need help after class and stuff. I'd like to see some late night help programs.
College Junior 2013-08-28T23:24:58Z
I just got here so everything's new to me really. There is a lot of help available at all times which is really nice

Tuition & Financial Aid:
This process was also frustrating because no one would tell me the date that the scholarship applications are due and when payments are due.
College Senior 2013-07-24T02:14:37Z
Lots of frustration with the registration process. They had told me that I didn't need to take any more prerequisites, but then I suddenly received a call that I need to take an English class B term or I couldn't progress to the next semester in the nursing program.
They won't give you the clinical schedule until the first week of class which makes it extremely difficult to make arrangements for work and childcare. Extremely frustrating!!!
College Senior 2013-07-24T02:11:02Z
I don't even think that there is an alumni network.
I believe that my job prospects are open once I graduate and pass the NCLEX.
College Junior 2013-07-21T06:35:11Z
They have a new scheduler through their Web Adviser so you can find classes that fit your schedule.
College Junior 2013-07-21T06:34:11Z
So far, I have had no troubles with Campus Resources such as the One Stop Center, Financial Aide or teachers offices.
College Senior 2013-07-03T19:11:18Z
Allt he teachers, advisors, and deans here are committed to their students and committed to their field of study! You can easily see the passion that the staff has here on campus.
College Senior 2013-07-03T19:07:25Z
I have gotten 3 jobs thanks to the help from Craven Community College! Emails go out once a week updated with available job listings from the area!
College Senior 2013-07-03T19:05:00Z
I am planning to obtain my Associates in Arts from Craven Community College; Craven is an excellent choice for those considering transfer!

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Craven is always willing to work with their students face to face and figure out what classes, payment plans, and options meet most (if not all) of each students' needs. Paying for tuition is a smooth, understandable, and easy process each and every semester!

Though I've never really dealt in the Career Services area while I was there, no one has really complained to me about it yet either. Our college has evolved a lot over the past few years and it seems to getting better as the years pass and the more our school grows.

Currently I have my associates in Art. I didn't know when I got accepted into the Early College program, what I wanted to be at the time and while I do love to draw, it's not the career for me. I was completely undecided on what I wanted to do, until about a year ago where I decided that I wanted to do Conservation Biology. I plan on getting my Bachelor's in Natural Resources with my main concentration being in Conservation Biology. From what I've seen so far from the two college I've looked at, NC State has a pretty extensive program for my field of study, and there is an internship requirement in order to graduate. As for the workload, after reviewing the curricula I see it being a very busy 2 years ahead of me and with little time and money to lose. The facilities are breathtaking when you realize that this program is not a normal in doors in seat classroom type program. You're out in the field most of the time doing the research to give you the hands on experience you'll need when you enter the workforce. And to add on, when you go off for your internship you usually end up graduating and going to work for the business you interned with.

Depending on which classes you took, the professors were either really helpful, or really annoying. One English class I had to take was with this one lady who annoyed me. She gave us our final research paper and gave a list of topics to choose from, one dealing with gay marriage, which I had experience dealing with for the most part, and then she turned around and said that I was too young to be writing a paper on it, when she was the one who listed it. Who's the one to tell me that I'm too young to write something I had ample amounts of knowledge on? Anyways, I also had professors like in my Psychology class who was always very understanding even though some of my discussion responses were a little odd. I had been out on my own and he understood I was having a hard time, and I still came out of the class with a B. The curriculum has quite a few choices, but not nearly as many as the university I plan to attend. I got my Associates so there was enough to get me through without having too much of a hassle. The class registration process went smooth considering you had the credits and the money to pay it when you signed up. They don't have a lot of time to mess around with students who register for the class and then are trying to pay for it when they get paid, so instead of giving an ample amount of time, they just drop you from the class and hope you try again when you have the money to pay right then, or sign up for their payment plan. The workload is pretty decent, you'll never have nothing to do. Some classes I got ahead in pretty easy and didn't have as much to do, but there was never nothing to do. If anything you always had some form of discussion board to answer, but there was never enough homework that you couldn't go out and have a life outside of school. There are study abroad programs offered and a ton of different clubs and extra-curricular to participate in, but unfortunately for me, I never really had time enough form work and school to participate in anything more than their bingo and popcorn days. As for programs mostly associated with the college, I would have to say anything business oriented, since our college was a business/career ready type environment. They work to give you the skills to get an entry level job and help you further your career if you want to go further into the field.

I've been on the Craven Community campus for going on 7 years now since I was in the Early College program. I've never once had issues with the student body and almost always found them helpful when I needed help with something. Some of the students could have taken their studies a little more seriously since they were pretty much using their parent's money to pay for school while they were sitting around playing silly childish games. Overall it was a pretty decent place to go.

I love being able to take the courses for Medical Office Administration online. Some of the teachers would give us a month between assignments so I didn't feel like I had enough to do to learn anything. Some classes I had to absolutely beg the instructor to give me the answers to the end-of-chapter questions so I could see how I did. It's not like this was a graded assignment. I just wanted to see if my answers were right to determine if I was learning the information correctly.

I like it because everything is in one location. All student services are in one building. All classes are located in the same buildings. For instance, all nursing classes are in the same location. At ECU, I had to go all over just to get through my day. I hated that it was so spread out there. But Craven is organized logically. I appreciate that.

The resources at my school are wonderful. I took a Custom Resumes course for free because of my unemployment. My college offers daycare for free for students with children. We also have a Career Workshop that stages mock interviews so students can practice interviewing with employers. I went to another resume workshop where I learned of a great opportunity for my first experience working in a real medical office.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
