I am a freshman and I am so incredibly happy with college. My teachers are so incredibly nice and engaging! I enjoy most of my classes, and the people who go to the college are also just ever so friendly! I am having the best time! I don’t really party and I live at home so I do not have any comments in that department. The online learning I have mixed feelings about, but I have absolutely enjoyed class so far.

I have mixed feelings on the online classes I am currently taking. I am taking 2 online classes. One class I meet up with on zoom twice a week, the teacher explains things very well and non of the assignments have been well presented and not overwhelming. The teacher also quickly grades the assignments so you are always up to date with your grades. In the second class the teacher lectures then gives you a vague idea for the next assignment. We had taken a test a few weeks ago and the teacher still hasn’t graded it. Our next assignment the teacher did not give us a place to turn it in, and did not explain a way to turn it in either. Over all I am not impressed with my second class.
My online classes create mixed feelings because one is great and has a great flow, the other is stressful because I am not given the proper information to succeed.
Central Wyoming College is an excellent place to begin you higher education journey. The professors make things easy to understand and if you still need help they will arrange times where you can meet and work. The library has a large collect of books that can help you manage your essays better. Staff is really friendly, and their are abundant of resources for students such as Trio, Student counseling, and Disability accommodations, and a number of clubs to join for almost any interest. However, I wish more students participated in club events/ activities. Overall, this is an amazing school for students just out of high school and a lot cheaper that attending a larger university will the sames things you'll be learning here.
