Western Wyoming Community College Reviews
The staff there are very professional and you get the sense that they have your best interests at heart; that they want to see you succeed. The small class sizes makes it easy to get in touch with faculty. Students feel like their queries and issues can be resolved or answered very quickly. There are clear paths being realized once you're enrolled and follow through the degree path. Though, I'm hoping for clearer explanations for articulate agreements with higher level institutions. The student body is also very diverse and you get a sense of inclusion through various groups both official and unofficial.
My experience with Western Wyoming Community College has been very good. Considering I have only experienced one year of college so far and I can't compare WWCC to any other schools, it has gone very well. The teachers and staff have all been very helpful when I needed their assistance, which I needed a lot of honestly. All the teachers I have had have been very good teachers, and they have taught their subjects very well. The class sizes are relatively small for a college, which is actually very nice and it makes it somewhat easier to communicate with the professors and it makes it easier to learn. Something that I would like to change would only have to be the food service in the cafeteria in the school, and that is pretty much the only complain I would have about the Western Wyoming Community College experience.
Great all around 2 year college and many programs that benefit the local jobs in the community. For the cost the of instate tuition and out of state tuition is definently affordable and helps plan your future in your career choice. The industrial department is top notch that most schools do not even provide. Very scenic hall ways and gorgeous outdoor views. Parking is super easy!
