Western Wyoming Community College Reviews

I'm going to say that the price of the college is overall great. And most of the professor were super cool and willing to help as long as you were willing to help yourself too.
The problem was with the higher ups. If you don't keep on top of things, your credits could disappear, people have had to retake classes because "they've never had taken them" and own thousands of dollars in money because of that place. The staff, the professors, are amazing and help you learn a lot of things. The people that are in the offices with financial capabilities and in that whole area are trash.
Also, if you do a survey that says hey, you guys need to fix something, it "suddenly disappears" and they'll ask you to retake the survey.

Western is such an awesome school! It is currently ranked the 7th best community college and the best in Wyoming. The staff are amazing and so friendly, which actually makes going to school a lot more enjoyable. The teachers actually care about the success of students and make sure they do everything they can to help us succeed. The staff help make Western a friendly and homey environment.
I am a Student Ambassador at Western Wyoming Community College and I have had a great experience. I love how the class sizes are much smaller than most colleges. Western is also very affordable for many students. There are many scholarship opportunities, if you qualify for them. Many out of state students are not eligible nor are out of county students able to apply for institutional scholarships. If I could change anything about Western Wyoming Community College I would offer more scholarship with a bigger range of variety so that more students can apply.
