Western Piedmont Community College Reviews
I LOVE WPCC! They offer SO many programs for students of all backgrounds. I am currently enrolled in their Career in College Promise, for high school students seeking college credit. This is an amazing program and an excellent opportunity. The only thing I am not too fond of is their advisor, who can be a bit annoying.
I have had a very good experience with WPCC overall. No, it has not given me all of the information and education that I wish to have learned throughout my college experience, but the professors and everything have been very good. The main issue that I have had has been more with the courses that that have not been general studies courses.
Wonderful community - staff and faculty are extremely helpful. Always available to meet with advisors. Used academic success center and tutoring many times, always free.
