McDowell Technical Community College Reviews
I am indebted to this college. The teachers are committed, interested in the success of their students, and expect them to work hard. The staff is wonderfully approachable and empathetic, seeing you as an individual, and the students are respectful and friendly. I feel I have received a rigorous undergraduate education at this two-year college. At McDowell Tech, I have not only discovered who I am as a student, but also who I am as a human being. This school has challenged me, but it has also given me the rewards of persistence and hard work. I feel fabulously prepared for the University of North Carolina at Asheville.
McDowell Tech is a great school. The professors and faculty always try to help you do your best and be the best. When struggling with courses they never hesitate to help. They will do whatever it takes to help you pass. This college does a great job of making sure you learn everything you need to know about a course and doing it in a fun and exciting way!
I have had a pretty good experience at McDowell Tech, they have always been willing to help. The only thing I would change was the availability for students that work the schedule like I do and I would really like it if they offered more classes online also.
