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!

This college offers a variety of programs for students who are continuing their education and current curriculum students, who are sometimes high school seniors. They also offer high seniors to attend early college which guarantees admission to any of the 14 participating colleges in North Carolina, some of which are UNC Chapell Hill and NCSU!

However, I think there should be more opportunities for students to participate in extracurricular activities and more clubs should be established.
I've been at Wake Tech for one semester, and I love it! All the professors are so encouraging and helpful in the college transfer process, always urging students to come to their office hours. The student lounge is crazy on the South campus right around noon, but any other time - as well as the student lounge on the West campus - it's pretty chill and a great place to study if you prefer not to go into the library. The libraries are beautiful with so many helpful resources. I have learned so much just in one semester about who I am and what I want to be. The students are all pretty friendly too. While not the most academically focused group of people, most of them are very supportive of you and are always looking to make a new friend. The campus is small enough that I often see the same people around campus in random places. Plus, the South campus is in Raleigh, surrounded by all sorts of job opportunities in the Research Triangle.
