At Southside Virginia Community College, our students are cut out for success. We illustrate this using life-sized cardboard cut outs of some of our successful students. These are fabulous examples of just a handful of our students who were cut out for success. These students learned that at SVCC, the knowledge and skills needed to accomplish their educational goals were right here, in Southside Virginia. Without having to venture too far, these students have been able to go far in their careers and accomplish much. Are you “cut out” for success? Of course, you are!!
