Amarillo College Reviews
I enjoyed the way Amarillo College approached the Coronavirus crisis with continuation of classes. My professors were all very accommodating and helpful, however we as students still learned everything that we needed to so that we could be prepared for future classes and university. Student life also remained active in the lives of the students which was very helpful in ways that still maintained social distancing rules. School officials also tried to update students as much as possible with any new information that became available; I would however reccomend that in future events like this Amarillo College provides information a little quicker and accurately to all students so that information is distributed consistently and some people are not calling to speak to individuals in the hopes of getting information about financial aid, books, or future classes from people that cannot be reached because they are outside of their office.
Amarillo College is 100% there for YOU! They have many fun things for all students to be a part of like Yoga on Tuesdays or movies on Fridays. They supply heath groups too, for example they have a Stress Management "course" to visit during lunch to help better yourself and your success. They are so helpful and all professors want to see you succeed! I wish they had more 4 year options so I didn't have to transfer as well as dorms or apartments.
Great college! Amazing staff that really want to help you in succeeding your goals! I love the teachers so much they really helped me through some of the toughest classes offered on campus. They however did loose one star due to the communication in the financial aid department side. The scholarship process is easy and got awarded fast though!
