Western Oklahoma State College Reviews
I like how it is small enough to be able to actually interact with your teacher. You can get a lot of help there, and build a bond with faculty and other students! I've been on campus plenty of times because I am in their Upward Bound program, and I love their library and how you can borrow books because college books are very expensive. I really love how the people there are so welcoming and motivated to help you.
I’ve only just started at WOSC this year but it’s all amazing so far! The teachers are all wonderful and very helpful! I quickly adjusted and became very comfortable all within the first week. Staff do everything they can to make sure you get through the college successfully. Financially, it’s a great start for higher education. It’s small and community oriented so it’s easy to adjust. I can’t imagine going to another college!
What I like about Western Oklahoma State College is that it is easier for me to reach out to my professors for when I need guidance to my education, enrollment, or tuition, especially since this is not that big of a college where there are so many students needing the same guidance as me. The enrollment and tuition are both cheap and faster to apply for. The requirements to get in are not as restricted as I thought it would be, though I've worked hard to get accepted by making sure I maintain good grade point average. I definitely recommend applying for Western Oklahoma State College, because it has a lot to offer by giving you opportunities to get the amount of education you all would need just in case you're going to fall back into them!
