Western Wyoming Community College Reviews
Attending Western Wyoming Community College was the best choice I could have made for my academic and career success. The tuition rates were extremely affordable and the class sizes were smaller than average, which allowed me to receive personal instruction from professors and faculty members that I would not have received at a larger, more competitive institution. Although WWCC is relatively in the "middle of nowhere", their theatre department is top notch for a community college, and it was here that I found a home and discovered my purpose for my passion in the performing arts. I was given countless opportunities to work as a student director for shows and play piano for competitions, auditions, classes, and a variety of other performance settings. The admissions and counseling staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, which made my overall experience at Western Wyoming Community College enjoyable and positive.
I havent attended the college quite yet. But, for the application process and for the online courses I can speak for are absolutely AMAZING! I have no immediate family who has gone to college they made it super easy and were very helpful for my process of paying for classes, books, and summer tuition. I have also been very impressed with the online classes and the staff it has all been so nice and easy to work.
Due to Western Wyoming Community College's geographical isolation, it was imperative that online learning was made as accessible as possible. Thankfully, all of my online courses at Western were satisfying and provided me with the quality educational experiences that I expected. WWCC does an excellent job in finding qualified professors and instructors to teach in online and distance learning situations that, overall, make the online instruction experience very rewarding and successful.
