Most of the classes are easy. Of course not all were perfect. I took an English class there and the teacher that I choose was bias and would give me a bad grade only because of the way I saw things.
There is some diversity and also campus is moderate. Food court is decent and athletic program is good.
Yes online classes, and I took 2 classes and felt it was very helpful and not difficult at all to talk to my teachers
My experience so far at Arizona Western College has been excellent. My major is Early Childhood Education. I am in my second semester, and so far, I am loving it even though we are in this new modality. My first semester at AWC was basically about the most common classes: English, Math, and I even took a Spanish language class. Currently, I am in my second semester, in which most of my classes are about what I am studying. Now I am taking six classes. To be honest, I thought it would be a great challenge for me since, for a moment, I thought that it would be something impossible; fortunately, until now, I have had great teachers who have helped and guided me to make everything easier. Although I have been a college student for a short time, I have overcome each of the goals I have set for myself. Eventually, I will have the great opportunity to volunteer at the preschool at the same college, which is very exciting since teaching is what I am passionate about.
For now, I have only had the opportunity to attend college online since we are in a pandemic. This is my second semester, so far, it has been a year with many ups and downs. I personally consider myself a person who to learn needs to be present in class and see how my teachers are explaining everything to me since, unfortunately, I am a person who is easily distracted. But even though I have been in online classes, I have been able to stay focused since my teachers have made my classes a lot of fun; they ask us questions that make us think about the topic they are talking about. This second semester I have felt even more motivated in my classes since currently, the classes I am taking are all about my career. I like how my teachers teach me since they put everything in situations that are currently happening. Similarly, my teachers are always active in answering questions, which makes everything easier. Overall, my experience in online classes has been good.
The online learning experience is pretty good, but some may find it a little more difficult to understand what's going on when being online and not in-person. It also depends on the course you're taking and such. Overall, is a very good experience (That may not be for everyone).
I didn’t really like the online program because I am a hands on learner and have a pretty difficult time with the online classes. I had these classes at the end of my senior year and had a really hard time with it so I choose to not have any online classes.
I honestly think that Arizona western college is a pretty good bang for the buck school. I really like the fact that I don’t have to leave my home town and I can see my family more than I would at an university. The only thing that needs to change is the parking. The parking is so far away from classes, that could make you late sometimes.
I love how interactive the professors are with their students. They make all of their students feel welcome and comfortable with their learning techniques.
The staff is really helpful. I wish that the office hours were longer and that some professors were more accessible. The campus was easy enough to navigate. Not confusing at all. There was a comfortable level of safety not only in terms of violence but also within the pandemic precautions. For the most part people are respectful and aware of boundaries. Professors are happy to assist in confusions. Peers are diverse and open- minded, a great group of people to be around. The campus food is good, generic college meals and some go-to restaurants. Overall, a great place to begin the college experience.
Speaking with anyone here is so unnecessarily complicated that nothing can be done in the time frame needed.
I was able to get more done online than I could have ever gotten done in-person. I was also able to get them done much more efficiently online as well.
Arizona Western College is a great 2 year experience. They offer great transfer programs with universities at Arizona. It has a great learning system especially during these conditions.
It's a good school but it would be better if the financial aid office actually responded to my e-mails.
I only gave it three stars because I haven't yet taken any online classes but I will be taking two of them soon.
What I like about AWC is that it's a very student-centered. It makes things for students very convenient and easy to access. They have longed rooms they have Outlets everywhere to charge your devices. There is a building dedicated to help tutor students that are having difficult times in classes and they even hire students to be tutors. Overall it's a very nice campus with nice and helpful staff
Learning online was kind of hard adjustment. Because of the pandemic all of my classes were switch to online and they're still online. But AWC mean to online learning very simple and easy after a while if I easy to just too. The teachers are very helpful in understanding to those who are having hard time to adjusting to online.
