West Los Angeles College Reviews
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.
This school has been an up and down roller-coaster because my experiences have varied. When I first started i heard extremely bad reviews. Many people call it a second high-school. Honestly it wasn't like that, although the school is very quiet and bland, some professors here do care. I realized that those who were talking down on this school are those who don't put their full potential in there studies. I like this school and its campus due to no distractions. West Los Angles has taught be to become much more independent in my studies and seek for help from those who care. One thing West LA has provided me with, that i'm extremely grateful for is a program that I'm currently enrolled called Trio Student Support Services.
