Student Reviews and Ratings for Kennebec Valley Community College
absolutely terrible service.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Love my new college KVCC! Awesome staff and professors!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Currently enrolled in the Electrical Technology program and on track to graduate in May. KVCC offers a well organized curriculum that is designed to engage and educate both a novice or a professional. The trades programs give students a hands-on approach that reinforces the classroom knowledge. Being able to work in the field while in the program is definitely beneficial! This is made easier & incentiveised thanks to the fact that some of the labs can be signed off by a boss or supervisor holding a master's license. Only reason for the 4* rating instead of 5 is that the ET program could definitely use a few more online and evening class options. Overall great community college with a friendly and helpful staff.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
A great little community college. Everyone is close and friendly since it is a smaller campus. Would recommend for undergraduates.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
This is a good school if you like junkies stealing money from your car. School security is sub par so I wouldn't expect much for education.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
