Amarillo college was a fascinating community college experience for me simply because it looked, and felt like a college, yet it was more affordable. I was able to take the classes I wanted to and pick my exact schedule without having to attend a university that was out of my price range. There was always some club activity or fundraiser or music festival going on in the commons that allowed passing periods to be unique and showed others what amarillo college had to offer other than taking classes. It showed that a person could get an education and become involved in the community. The only downside I ever saw about Amarillo college was that during the three years that I attended there was construction around the entire campus. However, the camput was beautifully put together. I was only sad to see the outcome of the work after I had graduated.

Amarillo College is a wonderful school to attend! The teachers genuinely care about the students and their success. The teachers actually teach their material, rather than saying "go read the book". A reasonable price for a genuinly excellent education is right at Amarillo Collge.
So far in this LVN program I have had a great experience! The teachers work collectively with one another and are able to convey information to me and my fellow classmates in a understandable way. The one thing I would change would have to be the bookstore operations. There were absolutely no organization this year, and it took weeks after school had began to get our books in and to us.
