My experience at Wharton County Junior College has been a great one! I'm just finishing my freshman year with plans on transferring to the University of Houston. I would recommend this college to anyone! I like how friendly and helpful the professors are as well as the online and in-person tutoring services are. This college provides many resources for every student to succeed. I also love how nice the campus is. It's a small campus with a first-class feel. Most of all, it's so very easy to make new and amazing friendships that will definitely last a lifetime. I highly recommend Wharton County Junior College for every student who wants the most out of their college experience!
Review Wharton County Junior College
While the city of Wharton itself is rather poor and unappealing, the college campus and students are actually quite nice. The online classes offered at WCJC are fairly easy if you get the right instructor, plus there are many opportunities if you have the right connections!
I have been going to Wharton county junior college since I graduated highschool in 2003 off and on. I do believe this is an awesome campus to attend. After applying for 4 years into the radiology program and finally on the 5th year I got accepted, I feel its very competitive but with hard work and determination you will succeed here. This school is overall a great place to start or finish.
