From Our Students
“The teachers, staff, and faculty here really care about your education. They encourage you and motivate you to do better and to be your best. The teachers here really, really care about teaching, which inspires you to learn. It makes you want to put in the effort because they are putting in the effort.” – Stevie Gaskins, Class of 2019
“Coming to Craven, I felt welcomed, safe, and at home, and I felt people actually cared about what I wanted. I would say that Craven Community College is a really military-friendly school due to the simple fact that they have groups and clubs just for veterans.” – Chad McClain, Student Government Association President
“There are so many ways to get involved on campus—more than people would think—and it makes class so much more fun than just showing up and then going straight home. Craven is very cost effective, but you still get the great educational opportunities that would be offered at a university.” – Alex Kirian, Class of 2019
