Westmoreland County Community College Reviews
I took 5 on-line classes throughout my education at Westmoreland Community College. I became familiar with what was expected of me with each class rather easily. The professors made it easy to contact them through email or in class messaging access. Although you never get to meet your professors in person, I think there is a more personable relationship with the professor because it is expected to interact one on one . They sent reminders of assignments due and prior to test dates which is repeated so it is highly unlikely you would miss deadlines if you are active on the class portal. The professors did an excellent job prepping for the on-line class to make them run smoothly. The lecture formats varied but all had prepared for the feeling of an in class presentation. The forensics professor recited a recorded lecture while showing a slide presentation for each lesson which was above and beyond to help his students understand the subject as if they were in an in person lecture.
I took Biology 155 and MTH 108 (Math for Technologies) class to prepare for Physics. Classes were small and instructors were extremely helpful answering any questions any of us had. They were willing to meet outside of class with any issues or questions. Instruction went very smooth during the COVID transition to online, it was like being in class but on Zoom. Advisors were quick to contact everyone and see who needed help in the crisis with bills and local resources. I have an excellent grasp on concepts, esp from the Biochem section in Biology to prepare for the MCAT. And I feel comlpletely prepared now for Physics and Pre-Calculus. Not easy instructors but they will prepare you!! Highly Recommend!!
Westmoreland is a fantastic school to attend. The first reason would be financially it is achievable and odds are you will be in little to no debt upon graduating. Reason two ALL your professors will know you by name its a great way to connect with professors and ask questions personally and even contact them out of school hours because they are that great! My last reason would be you make so many friends and connections that its all so worth it.
