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.
Review Arizona Western College
Arizona Western College is a great college, installations are in good conditions and must of the professors own a higher level of education as master or doctorate degrees which means that professors also own a lot of experience. I will make some changes in the classes that all the semesters are in wait list of 18 or 20 people, if only college put together those people in wait list they will made a full class in a different hour and with a different professor which means creating new jobs. Even though is a small college compare to universities I like that the AWC personal send emails and put some posters around the installations to invited the students to participate in some of the events that will occur during the month. I am about to finish my minor degree and I just hope to learn thousands of new things and enjoy my last semester as a matador.
As part of the Honor's club, my professors and advisors put effort into helping me succeed, but Arizona Western College is no place for someone with a Marine Biology Degree. Biology is the closest thing I can get to what I want to study at this college and basically throughout all of Arizona, so I'll have to transfer to another state to study what I want to. Nothing I really need or want for a marine biology degree is something I can achieve here. Even in Honor's, the workload is pretty easy. As long as you don't take more than you can handle, it's easy to go on with your schedule. I take advantage of the facilities presented to me in the Honor's club (free printing, a computer lab, couches, a quiet study space) and there are many internship opportunities available, as long as you are studying something that can actually be used in Arizona.
