Wichita Area Technical College has proven to be a great investment in my education. Although only a community/technical college, they offer a wide range of areas to major in and even a "shocker pathway" which allows you to transition into majors at the 4yr college Wichita State. Being a small college there in no 'party scene', dorms or athletics but the lower price of tuition makes up for that. Overall I would recommend WATC to anybody looking to get started on a new career path.
Review Wichita Area Technical College
Great institution! Teachers are great at explaining the concepts! Usually smaller classes, so the teacher usually remembers a face and a name.
I love this school! They are very helpful when you come in lost and trying to find your life path! I wasn't sure what career I was interested in and the admissions counselor took her time and made me feel important. Better than any 4 year can do!
