Most courses now are online. This semester I dropped 3 classes because of online problems. First, applying for my math class, I was enrolled in two classes. I was told it was a two part class. The math instructor a week later decided she had too much on her palette and dropped one of the classes as an instructor. Inadvertently, she disconnected me from both classes and I fell way behind waiting for my class to be available. Also the first week of school, between the two math classes I had 9 assignments and 3 tests due. That is insane for a community college entry level math class in my opinion.
I love going to school at Central Wyoming College. They offer a variety of classes. The teachers care about your success and future. They do all they can to help you understand the material and to pass they class, they truly care about the students. Classes sizes aren't huge and I like that. We are surrounded by the beautiful Tetons, West Yellowstone and Jackson Hole. Beautiful place to live and go to school.
We have one of the best archaeology programs in the country because of all of the field school and hands-on experience that the students get the opportunity to benefit from. For such a small school we have great programs and top-notch professors! Oh, and both our Rodeo and Speech and Debate team have been known to qualify and compete nationally.
