I did not particularly like it. I have to admit that all the teachers I had were great. They were awesome at explaining, very open to questions and fair graders. The students though were not at a college level. I am an international student here, and the teachers were all very welcoming. I really liked the atmosphere. Where I come from universities are much, much bigger; you are assigned a matriculation number, and the teachers do not even know your name. While here the approach was more individual.
I hated going to meet one of the counselors! Take into consideration at least 2 hours if you want to go. The wait was just stressful and a total waste of time. I have only been there twice and the counselors I've met were extremely nice to me. They were kind even though they didn't know how to solve my problem. They both said the next time I could just walk in their office, instead of doing the line. I truly appreciated how helpful they were trying to be.

I am apart of the Honors College program at WCC, and it has been a genuinely nice experience. The teachers that are there full time are phenomenal and you can tell that the staff really cares. The adjuncts are not as good as the full time teachers but they aren't bad. The school provides a lot of flexibility with scheduling as it offers classes at nearby extension centers and high schools. Overall I am enjoying my time here, it's overall a good learning environment with lots of different types of people.
Westchester Community is a diverse community of students of all ages . Class sizes are ideal for student who are looking for more one on one, and to build more connections with students and professors during an after their college career at WCC. Forming friendships at WCC is very easy and the friendships I made have lasted. The campus is small enough with resources that can help most people with classes. Ex; turtoring ect. Professors are also very involved with their students and their success.
