NorthWest Arkansas Community College Reviews
My experience at Northwest Arkansas Community College has been nothing but exceptional. The teachers go above and beyond to help their students not only learn but succeed. I as a student and never afraid to ask a question or get the teachers assistance on something. There is an enormous amount of parking space and a parking pass is not to unreasonably expensive. Everyone is friendly and helpful. There are campus police constantly patrolling and they are not too busy to assist you if they can. The community is very diverse as it is home to the Walmart home office. Overall my experience with Northwest Arkansas Community College has been very helpful. A great place to start your college adventure!
Northwest Arkansas Community College (NWACC) is a great place for any students to come and study here. There are lots of people who applied to NWACC, the instructors here are nice and very helpful, and the computers and technologies works smooth. One thing that I liked about this college is the "Integrated Design Lab" building that was newly built this year. It has many fine arts classes that teaches drawing, ceramic, 3-D Design and more. If there's anything that can be change in NWACC, I hope that they will build another parking lot building. Many students drives their own car. The school already had one parking lot building, but it gets full very fast. Some other students still park far away from the community and then walk from there because there was no parking available near the school. I wish that they built another car park building closer to the community to make things easier for students.
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!
