My experience at West Georgia Technical College has been nothing short of a "God send". They have extremely flexible hours, amazing staff that are dedicated to the student, clean facilities, and multiple locations to fit most needs. I work a job that requires 130+ hours every two weeks, and this college and the faculty have been able to adapt my schedule to fit my needs as a student, parent, and worker. The only issue I have with the college is that there are times that due to the personalized attention to each student, there are waiting periods of up to an hour to get individual attention.For those of you who think, "What is he complaining about, he gets the attention", be aware that I have been somewhat spoiled by this college in a way that I believe all college students have the right to be spoiled.
Review West Georgia Technical College - Murphy
Recently a spokes person, so to speak, from Mercer University visited one of my classes and it was great! I hadn't really given the school much thought because of various reasons but after hearing her talk and finding out that there is a good potential of credits being transferred I'm very excited! This opportunity may not have existed if I wasn't at West Georgia Technical College.
I'm in the Criminal Justice field of study and I love how each teacher has their own perspective because they've worked, or are still working in some cases, in the field. The class also gets to go on field trips which is awesome! Who wouldn't want to visit a police station or something like that? Seriously it's great!
