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!

My experience at WCJC has been well with few exceptions. I enjoyed the fact htat WCJC was so close to home. The faculty knew how to teach their subjects efficiently and effectively. Learning subjects like College Algebra was actually easier to learn at WCJC than it was learning Algebra 2 in high school. The class schedules worked really well for me during most of the semesters. Due to my high grades I was accepted into WCJC's Presidential Scholar's Program which allowed me to enjoy a trip to Washington D.C., fully covered by the college. However, I would appreciate much better communication from the Presidential Scholar's staff in the future especially for future students since I was not always rightfully informed when needed on certain occasions.
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!
