Wharton County Junior College Reviews
I started my journey with wharton county junior college, Sugar Land TX from Spring 2019 as a freshmen. It is really wonderful to be the part of wcjc. Starting from professors to the campus wharton is absolutely a best place. The academic activities as well as non academic activities both are unique and help students to indulge in them and learn something new every time. The security, campus, classrooms, labs and professor are all best and that’s my overall semester was so wonderful and due to good professor i was able to make a good GPA. College experience are often not interesting for some students but mine was throughout amazing. After my first semester I learned how better manage my time, take advantage of campus resources and also how to organize myself better. These struggles also taught me that sometimes I try and rush through things instead of taking my time. Personally though, I consider my time in college as my most valuable experience.
Wcjc is filled with nice people and is a great school for starting college. It is a great two-year college for those who seek an associates degree or even for those who want to do their basics for a year or two then transfer. Most professors I have had are willing to help aid you in work for the class to help you turn it in on time. Wcjc will have small clubs and activities for students and sometimes for students and their families. During my first year exam weeks, the school brings dogs to help calm the nerves of the students. Many times throughout the year, the school will have a small bake sale with many different types of sweets. Overall, the school has a great environment and it is a school I recommend to my younger friends and family.
I like how close it is to home and how easy it is to register for classes as well as how easy it is to talk to an advisors. Professors will do whatever they can to make sure that students do good. One improvement that WCJC can work on is the student parking lot which gets worse throughout the semesters. Other than that, WCJC is a great community college to attend!
