Okay please read this people. I was once just like you looking for a college that i could easily get into or that my friends were going to. Okay WORST IDEA EVER!. Look if you are the following: Happy, confident,caring,charismatic person then please look elsewhere. Also if you are a person that has been through a lot in life and came into christ this is no way in hell the place for you. The students here are just awful i mean really, its only 3 groups that you can be apart of here the whores(if your a girl) the rejects or the nobodies.Its no in-between. If you're a friendly person you better learn how to be mean They will take your kindness as weakness. There's too many fakes here i mean everyone will get on there knees in chapel but as soon as thats over good luck.I say that they are broken souls because a go 90% of the students and trust me you can tell its 90% because no one goes here you see the same people everyday.But right they are broken because the 90% of people that go here have had some type of traumatizing past that they have not let go of. They have not truly come to christ in there own way. They act like they did because of family or friends or peer pressure. There are so many homo sexual and fakes and liars in this school you won't even be able to count them on your fingers or toes!. Most of the students here are very awkward, thats why if you're confident they will look at it as arrogance. If you're good looking and nice the guys and girls will see you as fake. If you ever do visit people look at how everyone carries themselves no one walks around with there head held high its always looking at the ground like they are waiting for the ground to talk. Very depressing place and something else thats funny you always hear crows every day not one day since attending have I seen or even heard normal birds and the school is right next to a nature park!!. Whatever friend,boyfriend,girlfriend you followed here will not be the same once you both are here don't waste your time or money please.But if your the type of person who loves consent drama,rude people,fakes,whores and homo sexuals then this is the place for you hun.

VFCC faculty are the strength of the institution. They are very helpful and genuinely care about the students. The college is stuck in an identity crisis between trying to hold onto its religious roots while presenting itself as a liberal arts college. The college needs to decide what it is and then learn to do it well. It was featured in Forbes Online as having a very low "Return on Investment" rating. Do your research and make an informed decision.

You can make this school great if you get a lot of scholarships. Overall it is hard to get a job out of VFCC because the school is not widely known, outside of the Assembly of God circle, and there is a lot of competition in some business fields where you need the extra experience and quality of institution. In other areas and majors you will not have the proper educational experience to 'make it'... for example education. Elementary education, at this time, does not provide students the ability to get specialized in an area e.g. a reading specialist. Its a plain Jane education degree. It is also almost impossible to complete an education degree in 4 years because of the large about of bible credits that are required; You don't even get a minor for them!! If you are going into ministry you will fair well (its easy to make some connections in the AG), but you will have a lot of debt.

The administration is very inefficient and at times not very customer savvy. If you have the ability to have your billed paid for and not have to deal with the administration, you may have a great experience. If you plan on taking loans and/or getting billed for your education, you may have a sub par experience. Most the offices have a hard time communicating with one another. Best advice: take your time and get familiar with the institution. When you graduate be prepared to lean on your own two legs because there is not much to lean on from VFCC after you graduate. The alumni presence & association is not very good and the college does a poor job to build relationships and invest in alumni. Lastly, the job market can be tough, depending on your major, because the quality of academics (again not all majors... Digital media is really good) may or may not train you adequately. Know before you Go!
