Western Piedmont Community College Reviews
This college has helped me get a head start on my college career. Their CCP (Career & College Promise) program has truly helped me and other students. The staff is very helpful by caring about their students and do their best to help students succeed. Currently as a junior in high school, I will be getting my associates by the end of my senior year. They have helped me save quite a bit of money and will continue helping me. This school is one of my top picks for colleges.
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 started at Western Piedmont Community College two years ago and the instructors are very nice. They make sure you get the help you need and are always there to help. They want you to be successful in life and go on to achieve greater things. The campus is also very open and it is not hard to walk to other classes. The staff are also very friendly and so are the students. I lost my phone once and it was returned to the front desk. The security makes the campus feel safe and secure.
