Wharton County Junior College Reviews
Spring 2020 changed everything. From meeting teachers and talking to fellow students face to face to staring at the little camera on our devices. It actually was a difficult time, since I, myself prefer to sit at a desk and raise my hand for a question. I had to email my teachers' about any questions or complaints, which resulted in emailing me back 2-5 business days. It was a terrible time. Yet, I pulled in strong at the end!
I enjoyed my first class that I've ever taken online and I look forward to taking more online, as well as experiencing on campus life once things hopefully get back to normal. The professor uploaded all lecture slides and recordings on Blackboard, and everything was very clear and easy to follow. It was structured in a very organized manner and I enjoyed the fact that there were strict deadlines for exams,quizzes and assignments, but flexibility as to how I could approach the lecture and my studies within the framework. The professor was also very helpful, responding to emails very quickly, and answering all questions with clarity. Overall, I had a great experience with my first online course.
Overall, great experience.
Overall, great experience.
This is a great place to start a 4 year degree! I enrolled right after high school, and I did terrrrriblllee. I took a 4 year break and now I'm back. Proper footing isn't finances or smarts because this school does alleviate that stress. Proper footing is the mentality and determination to do good. I wish I knew that the first time around.
