I like that the class sizes are small. Having smaller class sizes lets the professor focuses more on students individually. The campus is very diverse, you get exposed to different cultures, allowing you to be open-minded to different people. Given the low cost of money you pay for classes, you receive a high-quality education. The campus has a lot of activities for students. The campus gives its students the ability to be more involved with the campus given the 80+ clubs at Arizona Western College. Future students would want to come to Arizona Western College for its low tuition rates, connections with major Arizona universities, and it's convenience of having on-campus housing. All these are what makes Arizona Western College considering the fact it's a community college it has that high education feels to it.

It's an okay place to go to if you are going to transfer to university soon. I didn't like the crowd there-they were quite unfriendly and already had there own cliques- but luckily that wasn't the case for all my classes. The professors are okay, but that also depends on what course you choose. I had an awful folklore professor for one semester, however my Freshman English professors were great. It honestly also depends on what quality of education you are looking for and also what background you come from.
Arizona Western College is a great place to apply. It offers a variety of 2 year technical careers, but also classes that can be transfer to university. The school is nice as well as the people that works there. They offer scholarships like the CAMP that pay for almost everything within one school year. Since this is not a huge college, you can relate more to the teachers and other students. Also, they have special people trained to help high school students that plan in enrolling AWC. They also offer dual-credits, which means you can work on your college credits while in high school. They not only support you on your career as a student, but also encourage you to join sports, and clubs to support other students.
