When looking for whatever classes I need to take, I always check to see if it is available at WLAC first because it is conveniently located with consistently reliable parking and excellent instructors. All the other students that I have talked to at West agree that WLAC is an excellent school. Every teacher that I have had here has been outstanding in the variety of subjects from sociology, chemistry, psychology, biology, math, statistics, and throughout the dental hygiene program. I have found that they truly want to help the students to succeed and move forward in their lives on toward their educational goals for their overall life enhancement. The campus police are friendly and professional. Go West, Go Far!

The EOP&S and counseling departments are incredible! The financial aid department is lacking in communication skills, follow up/follow through and (with the exception of one person), the ability to make students/parents feel like their attendance matters. The math department creates final exams set up for most students to fail. It seems they want to keep the students enrolled/spending money on math classes. The campus is nice, the students are mostly friendly and helpful. The library and staff are fantastic. The bookstore and staff are wonderful.
West Los Angeles college is an exceptional jr. college. Starting with the professors I’ve had the pleasure to learn with. Only one has stood out. Prof. Greg Horwitz, biology professor, he’s their “to help and not hurt us”. His teaching method, consists of PowerPoints and assignments. Exams questions come from the book,notes and assignments. In the beginning, it was hard to adjust too.As I am a freshmen. It’s a clean, fresh campus. The athletes teams are great, I have a friend who travels from la valley to west la just for track. It crosses my mind, that’s some of the professors haven’t done their best at explaining the material. I have better use getting a tutor than to master the objective. My strong suit isn’t math and the teachers whose classes I’ve taken aren’t the very best when explaining it, to where I can interpret it.
