My college experience has been very good with WCCC. When signing up for classes, the advisers are very helpful in providing the information you need to start off your semester. The campus is currently being renovated to enhance your experience and environment on campus. The academics help provide you with outside skills like leadership and critical thinking. They also have a great transfer program because of the helpful counselors and advisers to make a smooth transition into another institution. One thing I would change is the lack of professors. Due to the lack of professors, the availability is more strict and leaves students with limited choices in classes.

I have not fully experience the college but felt a little bit of what the college might offer. Based on my first impression, I believe one can receive a good and outstanding education based on my instructor approach. The school is very welcoming and the people were very approachable.
Reading about some of the activities that were offered compare to the collegr I transferred from, they are well advanced and passionate about their students and reputation.
Westmoreland County Community College is a very warm, welcoming place. For me, I decided I was going to start my college experience early. So, in the fall of this year, my junior year, I decided to take one class at Westmoreland. I decided to take college writing since it is basically universal when it comes to choosing a major you would like to pursue. I had nothing but a great experience there. My teacher was very nice, and all the other students in the class never made me feel unwelcome because of my age. I am planning on going back to take as many credits as I can before moving onto the University of Pitt-Greensburg.
