Western Nebraska Community College Reviews
Because of COVID, I took a fully online American Government class, and a blended Intro to Psychology class. I loved my Am Gov Professor. He made the most of the situation and brought so much interactive life to this online course. He made sure to have available time to reach him on zoom to talk to him in real time to express any questions or concerns over the course period. I really enjoyed how thoroughly he navigated the course, and made no question feel like silly question. He made sure to challenge your potential and give you high expectations, but gives you the road map to success, as long as you put in the work!! The blended course instructor was also so flexible because of the nature of the COVID scenario. There was technology issues along the way because no tech is perfect, but even those glitches we navigated together and worked to make the semester as successful and efficient as possible. We blended our classroom through zoom classroom and different campuses.
Such an affordable option for your first 2 years of college! I was in the music department and absolutely loved the directors and professors I was able to work with. Through time in my one-on-one voice lessons, and sectionals in choir I was able to grow as a vocal performer. Our groups always had so much fun in the practice room and performing, while keeping it professional. Your professors want to make the most of their time with you, being it just a 2 year school. I think our database resources for papers and research is so great!! We also have a great writing and math center with tutors and appointment times available to all students! Our recent updates to the school make studying in the library study rooms so wonderful! You can reserve a private room, or reserve a room for a group! I think WNCC is a great place to start the journey and get general eds out of the way for a Bachelor's, or even just get school under your belt for an Associate's. Great professors!! Great low cost!
I loved Western Nebraska Community College when I was involved in music. I loved the music program as well as the involvement, and ties they have with other universities. The downside is the fact of transfer credits. Be careful about what you take here because sometimes they will transfer or not at all. Yet other than that, living situation, the area, and nightlife is a little lackluster. I loved it but definitely needs more nonetheless...
