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.
The love and support I have received at Western Piedmont has encouraged me to continue to pursue a higher education. I was not sure of what career I wanted to chose and felt overwhelmed by the whole college experience. The staff here has helped me find my passion and they provide a lot of resources to their students. I have had a great experience with all the professors I had have had.
