Wake Technical Community College Reviews
I went here for two years as a transfer student and I'm so glad I did! This school prepares you for the future whether it be a career or transferring to a new college. They offer many programs to help you figure out what you want to major in or what career to choose. They offer services to help those who aren't financially stable, such as the food nest and financial assistance for insurance and rent. The academics are great and transfer to universities perfectly. They have plenty of clubs and activities and if you don't see what you're interested in, you can create one! The staff and professors want to help you succeed to the best of your ability. It's also a very safe school for LGBTQ+ students! There's a LGBTQ+ Straight alliance club. They have several activities and meetings that are beneficial for students. They also hold fundraisers for Prom! This school cares 100% about it's students and community and they try to help out in any possible way they can.
While going to community college was a good cost-effective choice for school, my experience was mediocre. The teachers were actually all really great. Helpful, respectful and patient. The faculty in departments such as financial aid and student services were less than friendly and lacked a drive to help students. Overall it was not a bad experience, just not a great one. Great money-saving choice!
Wake Tech's northern campus is one of the best places adult learners can succeed and achieve their goals of becoming college graduates. The class are affordable, which makes the first steps into college less intimidating. The professors are ALWAYS willing to help the student, and I have always felt that each teacher genuinely cares about the success of each student. The faculty in the library are extremely competent and can help with literally any type of research. There is also the ILC (individualized learning center) which is pretty much free tutoring for any student enrolled at Wake Tech. And to top it all off, the campus is absolutely beautiful!
