My experience as an international student at Cowley community college was tremendous. The staff members were welcoming, they were able to help me adjust to a new environment. Being my first school in united states was overwhelming. Surprisingly all turn out great, from meeting new people who did everything they could to help me adjust. It being a two year community college, not so many people you will find but it is easy to make new friends. The athletic program is great, i was able to participate in track and field so i got the experience and it was an exciting program to be. The professors are nice and they try their best to help student especially when you do ask questions.In addition, they engage student in bringing ideas and concepts during class time. What i would like for them to improve is more resources at the library. I would recommend anyone considering to join to give it a good chance.
Review Cowley County Community College
Overall, this was a great experience. Teachers were, for the most part, very understanding and willing to spend time and put in an effort to make sure that the student was at their full potential. They give emphasize on their office hours, way to reach them outside of class, so you are never out in the dark. Admissions can sometimes talk to you in a condescending way which makes you never want to go back in there. One advisor informed me, with an attitude, that there was no need to go see them for things I could do myself even though I did not know how to, although I did learn that day by watching her. The campus is only a block away from the police station and is not very big, making it easy not to get lost. The town it is located in is not the most exciting by any means, but if you are looking to get some classes out or even a degree, certification for a good price in a small, quiet town with great teachers, I strongly recommend CCCC.
I have had many online courses since I have been attending Cowley College. In most instances, I prefer the online courses. I have found that they work better with my schedule and I also like that the students can basically choose when they have "class time". I feel that online courses also help students with their work ethic. Almost all of the online classes require discussion posts once a week along with replies to peers. This helps further students' education and learning by interacting and reading about other students opinions or just what they understood from the chapter/week. It can be extremely easy to procrastinate with online courses since students are not required to be at a specific place at a certain time. It can also be extremely easy to forget assignments if the student does not have a good system of keeping track of everything that they need to do. The only critique that I have about taking classes online is that it is harder to communicate with the instructors and get questions answered. Also, when it comes to classes that are specifically for the student's degree it is better, in my opinion, to take them in class because it is easier to understand and learn what the subject.
