I am taking online classes and I could not be anymore happier. I enjoy doing my class work at whatever time fit my personal schedule, instead of having to wake up really early or being late to class because of an unexpected conflict. My school, Amarillo college, is a great fit for me because the campus itself is nearby and so inexpensive which makes it perfect for my first year of college. I think Amarillo college is unique because we have a mannequin named Mona who represents our school. I would chose my school again because the location and price are so convenient for me.I cannot stress enough how much I enjoy taking college classes without having dept. It's Fantastic!
Review Amarillo College
I started attending Amarillo College last fall (August 2016) and so far I have loved my experience. I am currently a full time student and take courses online and on the campus. I love this diversity because being a mother of four boys all under the age of 15 it would be hard to have to take all my courses on the campus. After about 18 years of not being in school Amarillo College has made learning fun, easy and interesting. Lord willing, I want to get in to the Nursing program this fall. I am attending the campus in Hereford Tx, but once I get into the Nursing program I will have to drive to Amarillo, as the Hereford campus does not offer all the classes. If one thing could change I would love to be able to take all my courses at the Hereford campus. Another change I'd like to see is coffee made available to all students.
A very interactive school with lots of assistance in tuition and acadamia. The campus is easy to get around, well organized and extremely neat and clean. I enjoy the Writer's Corner and fellowship and camaraderie with the students. The classes are abundant and varying, giving for a good selection of courses. I would like to see a small fresh food cafeteria installed. Right now, there's only vending and a food truck. During bad weather, a sit down restaurant-style eatery would be especially appreciated.
