NorthWest Arkansas Community College Reviews
Although NWACC is growing rapidly, they maintain a small classroom environment and focus on students' needs. Many students here, like me, cannot afford other schools or are saving to transfer. Many students here did not make high enough scores to get into other colleges. So NWACC provides a lot of support with reading, writing, and math tutors and labs. They really want your experience to be a positive one so that you will graduate!
I LOVED this school. The classes are very affordable and the teachers are helpful and caring. I had a great college experience here because my teachers actually connected with their students, which is unlike most large schools. The campus is clean and safe, and all the buildings are close together, so there is minimal walking. The parking is free too!
I've had a good experience at NWACC. Honestly, I'm part of the Culinary Program, and so I'm not at the main campus much, except when I'm taking my core classes. My core class teachers were ok, but they weren't the best. My math teachers, were not good at all, but my English teachers were great! The Culinary Program is an amazing and awesome experience! I love going in and knowing that I'll be challenged and welcomed during my journey throught the program! I can't wait to teach my family all that there is to learn about cooking! Nevertheless, I think NWACC has a lot of potential, but it's not quite where it needs to be.
