West Georgia Tech is a place where you can work towards getting a certification, degree, or diploma. Whether you intend to stay at this technical college or move on, it equips you with the basics. It has been a good college albeit lax at times.

I applied at the Lagrange campus. Here, I wish there were more willing (and understanding) instructors at times; especially in the case of core classes. However, thankfully the tutoring system that the school provides -- both online and on campus -- has proven to be a lifesaver. Take advantage of it!

The Murphy college campus for West Georgia Technical College is a nice, easy to navigate campus. It's easy to find where you're going without getting lost due to how condensed everything is. The service staff in advisory are kind and polite while they take their time to help you figure out what you're trying to do. This college campus also provides students with your basic academic subjects of study while also providing some other areas of study for you to dwell in for general core credit.
WGTC is amazing for those not interested in the wild college party life. It is very down to earth and best for focusing solely on your academics. I believe that sometimes with the sororities and fraternities that universities offer, it distracts from focusing on academics. I wish we had dorms/housing arrangements and definitely a cafeteria.
