Minnesota West Community & Technical College Reviews

I do like that the college campus is small, it makes it easier to get to your classes and the buildings are connected so no need to go outside. It is also located right next to YMCA, so it's easy to just walk right in and get any physical activity or a workout in after any class. The library, or LARC area, is very nice for students to get their work done or study. It also includes study rooms where you can be alone or with a friend and no one will bother you. The class sizes are also smaller than some other colleges, so it's easier to talk to the teacher or ask questions. Changes I wish to see would be academics. Some classes are very easy and not very challenging. It's also not very hard to cheat on online courses.

Minnesota West is a nice community college. It's local for me so it's a perfect fit to jumpstart my college career. I'm going to be graduating soon and go to a four-year degree college. My credits will transfer good, all things seem to be looking good. There's not much more I could ask for from them. The teachers I've had have been good, and the people I've interacted with seem friendly. Overall, I do like the college. I've take almost all of my classes online and my experiences with that have been very satisfying. I would recommend this college to people who are interested.
For me, the personal involvement of each of the faculty staff, my instructors and professors have is amazing. They always take the time to stop and assist me with course questions, clarifications, or anything at all that I may have. To know that they are genuine in wanting to help me succeed is amazing and just spurs me on to do better.
