Haywood Community College Reviews
Registration was a nightmare for new students when I first enrolled, but I heard the school has changed it to a better method since then. Before I enrolled, I had the impression that the school pretty much only had Forestry, Fish and Wildlife Management, and Cosmetology. Obviously I was wrong, but those are the programs that get the most exposure. Workload and general experience with the courses really depends on who teaches it. I've had courses I thought I would love become my most hated ones because of someone's teaching method; whether it was giving 3 weeks of homework in one week because they personally felt the course wasn't progressing fast enough or putting so much of their personal opinions in their lectures that I didn't learn a thing. But I've also had courses I thought I would be boring actually being very enjoyable because of the teacher. For example, I took an extra psychology course because the teacher made his lectures interesting and was sympathetic to the fact the students had other classes when planning homework. There's an option for honors credit for most courses by doing an extra project, but students have to decide whether to do it or not in the first week of class. Because of the short deadline, I personally never used that opportunity because I didn't know how much it would effect the workload for the course. So while program may be sort of hidden in the school's offerings, it may be because it's entirely unpredictable in its academics.
Before attending this school, I thought I would be outnumbered by country boys and shallow girly-girls. I was happy to find the student body for general education degrees is more mixed, with a large majority of "nerds" like me. The early college students usually have their own classes or are a small section of my classes, which is good since they live up to their campus reputation of being immature and generally annoying. I do seem to be a bit odd in couple of ways though. I knew before enrolling what my education plans were and what career I wanted, and I've met only a couple of students who were the same way.I also seem to be in the minority when it comes to failing/dropping/retaking classes. I've passed all my classes the first try and have never dropped any. All the students are from somewhere in Western North Carolina, so ethnic diversity doesn't really exist other than some Hispanic students. Overall, it's mainly local kids who don't know what they want to do yet so they just keep taking different classes.
Student Services usually isn't busy, which is an advantage. However, some of the workers have acted annoyed with me before, like I should already know the process for my need and not be asking them for help. Most clubs and extracurricular activities are for students of specialized programs, like Forestry and Wildlife Management. Even ones open to General Education students like me are usually biology and environmentally based. I am a member of the school's Phi Theta Kappa chapter, but in my year of membership there's been no activities and less than five meetings, and they weren't productive in the least. I did join when the club got new faculty advisers who didn't know how to run it, so that might be a possible reason. Overall, there's not much consideration for anyone who isn't trying to become a park ranger and is more of a place to get your degree and transfer to a better school.
