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.

I have only taken online classes at Arizona Western, but it has been a positive experience so far. The quality material is adequate and the professors seem to genuinely care about the success of their students, even without ever meeting them face to face. The assignments challenge the students and have to be done in a timely manner. Students aren't being shortchanged by taking online classes here at Arizona Western College.

The reason I didn't give AWC a 5 star rating is due to the fact that they charge extra for online classes. I was a little shocked when I discovered this. While the fee is only 25 dollars, it adds quickly.

Every time I go to campus, I am always greeted with open arms. Everyone is eager to help and they know what their jobs are. The campus itself is very nice. Always clean and well maintained. The gym and the pool are also very nice.
I have to say that I have not been at Arizona Western College long enough to give it a detail view, but I can give what I have experienced so far. The college so far has been amazing. The teachers I have encountered so far have been understanding and cooperative. There are many internships and work-study opportunities that anyone can take, that have to fit the requirements of course. A complaint I do have is that professors have to have a required book for each of their courses, but sometimes the book that is "required" isn't really needed and some professors say that in the first day of their classes.
