My experience at VA Western was excellent. The flexibility of the classes made it possible for me to earn an Associate’s degree over the course of two pregnancies. Additionally, once I finished my degree I was able to seamlessly transfer to a four-year institution where I went on to complete a Bachelor’s degree. My time at VA Western gave me the confidence and education I needed to make that goal possible. I will always think back fondly on those years!
