Going to a smaller school, like Amarillo College helps you learn better because you are in a more intimate classroom setting. It allows for you to ask more questions, and help with clarification. The advisors as well as the professors truely care about their students and want to help them succeed and get them on the path they want or need to be on. The only downside I have experienced was last year when my car was broken into on campus and since there were not cameras facing that parking lot, campus police could not help me. This is so far the only bad experience I have had on campus. Even when classes were fully virtual due to covid, the professors made it known that they were going to try to give us any assistance we needed as they could.
What I liked about Amarillo College is that the instructors were always accessible. They never had too many students to attend to, so it made it easier on the students taking the class to ask for help. Also, the campus is not big, which makes it easier to navigate and find classes. One thing I wished Amarillo College offered is more intramural sports like flag football, soccer, and basketball.
The system needs to be more intuitive and streamlined. Even the home page for the website seems clunky and it's hard to find readily available answers for any questions you may have. I remember there being a lot outages, freezing, and work lost due to the system.
My department was small and tight knit, we all grew up through the program together. My advisors were also my professors and they were knowledgeable and were really invested in my success. If there was every any issue with books, tuition, or classes they always went the extra mile to assist in any way they were able to. The campus facilities were nice and in recent years have undergone remodels so it's a gorgeous and technologically competitive facility. The campus was safe and accessible however a parking garage would be a good idea for this busy campus. The student services were frustrating at times in regards to financial aid, payments, records, and organization. Other than that, I highly recommend this campus and an extremely affordable and supportive option to preface your 4 year degree goals.
Each class encouraged participation by giving discussion prompts that kept me from feeling detached from the college and my classmates. The instructors responded quickly if I had any questions and offered feedback regularly to keep me on track.
I absolutely loved attending Amarillo College! There are always small things at colleges that can be frustrating, and for me, it was specifically the limited parking on campus, but otherwise, I always enjoyed my time there. The recent opening of the UNDERGROUND helped a lot with study space access and technology, and the different activities you could participate in on-campus were great as well!
Taking classes online that were not originally meant to be online was rough during COVID, and most professors did the best they could, but there were a lot of issues with access to assignments, knowing when things were due, taking exams, or getting grades back from online professors.
Everything is very simple and easy to use online. I currently take all my classes online and it makes things a lot easier.
Amarillo College has a lot of programs and opportunities available for all of us students. There are many resources available and great staff to help people out.
AC is an awesome school for Non-Traditional students looking to get back into school. All the professors I have had here seem to truly care about their students and their success! Their courses are challenging with the 8-week delivery program, but I have found that ultimately I like it more than a traditional 16 week course!
I do not have much experience with their online education but I will very soon as I am attending their college next Fall of 2021.
Teachers are very helpful and are thorough in their lessons. From what I hear from other attendees, they are well rounded in their education and the campus is well kept.
When covid hit, it affected everyone in the way classes were taught. The staff found great strategies to transition seamlessly.
Due to the pandemic, online learning is very important in these times. At Amarillo College, they have made sure that online learning is easy and effective. They also have online tutoring and you can make appointments with your instructors to get direct help from them.
My experience with Amarillo College has been very educational and the staff and professors that teach there are always willing to help you achieve the grade goal that you want or need. There are study halls and tutors for every course they provide, and there is also an underground study hall with individual cubes that can hold up to 1 to 10 people at a time. There are snacks and water, as well computers and dry erase boards.
Classes had to become online when the pandemic started, we met via zoom, clinicals were postponed until the hospitals allowed us to return. Online classes are not bad at Amarillo college.
The nursing program is very fast, and hard but the instructors are always their to help you succeed.
