For those of you out there concerned with financial affordability in correlation with a bad college experience, look no further! Wake Technical Community College is an affordable two-year community college where you can pick up your general education requirements, foster your passion for learning, and meet great people and instructors who are excited to learn about the same things that interest you. You don't have to go to a four year university and be buried in student debt for the rest of your twenties and even thirties. It's a beautiful campus filled with people who are looking for the same thing that you're looking for: a brighter future.
Review Wake Technical Community College
Before I became severly ill with Multiple Sclerosis and prior to attending Wake Tech Community college, I attended two four year universities. Compared to those two four year universities, Wake Tech has superceeded their quality as far as having a much better quality in curriculum and helpful academic counceling! For example, I had to medically withdraw from a Cultural Anthropology class I took at N.C. State and I took the same class at Wake Tech this past semester. Although it was taught creatively at N.C. State, at Wake Tech I learned a plethora of necessary information that was not taught before. Moreover, I have found the classes at Wake Tech more extensive in their material and definitely more challenging which is great for students (like myself) whom will be transferring to a four year university. The majority of the professors are great instructors and truly care about you learning the material and passing the course. The variety of courses are conducive to what can transfer. Registering early and on time is vital! Although classes are offered on five of its campuses, due to smaller class sizes they fill up quick and availability is low! Overall, Wake Tech is a great school and I give them a two thumbs up.
I'm completing my fourth semester at Wake Tech North Campus. The Campus is new, clean, and growing. Most of the professors that taught me were helpful, well informed, and great at what they do. However, I have had several issues with Advisers. I met with three different advisers, and the first two seemed to be ill-informed about credits desired by universities. Until my last meeting with an Adviser, I was confused by exactly what credits do I need to earn and if they had to correspond with the credits required by the university etc. However, I have already seen an improvement. My most recent adviser meeting went smoothly and she provided me resources to call for any questions she was not able to answer. Most of the staff at Wake Tech are supportive and encouraging of their students. I did not expect Wake Tech courses to challenge me as much as AP classes in High School did, I am glad to be challenged and encouraged by the professors.
