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.

Wonderful community - staff and faculty are extremely helpful. Always available to meet with advisors. Used academic success center and tutoring many times, always free.
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.
