I love the atmosphere at WCTC. Between the diversity of students in your class and the excellent professors, I feel that the opportunities are endless at WCTC. Great class size and great opportunities to get a start on your career for the first time or going back to school for a switch in careers. Everyone is there to help!

The teachers are very friendly and welcoming to the students. They encourage you to seek help and are willing to help you in any way, shape or form you need. They definitely go above and beyond to help their students. The atmosphere is very friendly and it is very easy to make friends with the other students. The cafeteria and smaller cafes on campus are affordable and have excellent food and beverage options. There are clubs available for people to join to get to know other students in their programs and to network and seek advice from those further along. Upon enrollment, you are given 35 dollars in money on your ID card to use for WEPA machines around campus. This is very helpful and there is a WEPA machine on every floor that can be linked to a one drive account. Blackboard and Campus are used by nearly every class to keep you updated on the syllabus, schedule, and necessary course materials and assignments.
It's a little rough getting yourself set up at WCTC, although I think when I started at WCTC in 2014 there were a bunch of changes being implemented and the staff were still getting used to them, or that's what it sounds like. I can understand that changes take time to become learned. I felt like I was asking questions during the admissions process that no one could answer but my adviser. My Adviser is intelligent, honest, and knowledgeable. She is one of my favorite parts about this school, I owe much of my success to Jessica Rolan. The Advising and Counseling schedule can be difficult to accommodate when you work Monday through Friday 8:30am-5pm, but so are doctor office or dentist schedules, not that unusual. The teachers are amazing also, I have learned a lot at this school. I have applied much of what I have learned into my everyday life and that's important to me. I love this school! I highly suggest it as an option to look into when picking colleges!
