“Myself, being a non-traditional student, am very pleased at how the teachers/professors treat students. I work full time and lead a very busy life and often times it’s very difficult finding the time to read or study, however they really take special care to give you every opportunity to keep up with your school work.” – Kevin Asbury, WVJC Student
