Western Piedmont Community College Reviews

The faculty is so helpful when needed and the students are friendly. One great thing about WPCC, is that you work hard, learn a lot, but you have some fun days. You can take those days to enjoy some food, games, or just to take some time to take a break. I think WPCC is unique for its great relationship between students and faculty. You're never uncomfortable to talk to teachers when you need, nor any of the faculty. I would definitely choose WPCC as my community college again; the scenery was breathtaking, teachers were easy to access, and help was always available.
My major is in Human Services with a Concentration in Substance Abuse Counseling. It is extremely rewarding and the workload is big, depending on how many classes you decide to take per semester. The curriculum is specific to my major and the separate classes also collaborate and coordinate well with each other. The facilities are very adequate and serve us very well and I like the way the buildings are set up on the grounds of Western Piedmont, they are all easy to get to.
I am working towards a therapeutic degree, teachers and advisors are helpful in making suggestions as to how to use this degree in the community, offering intern placements which hire most of the students afterwards. Real world college for real work job opportunities.
