I’m a student at Wilkes Community College who also works as a tutor and mentor on campus. It can be rather inconvenient, as an Ashe county student, to drive to Wilkes for some classes. The Ashe campus has very little fun activity but we are working to change that. I absolutely love the professors and it has changed my life attending this college.
I have taken many college classes and summer cooking classes through community college as a high school student, as I am a senior planning to attend WCC next fall. WCC has great professors that want to see all of their students excel in the classroom, always offering help if needed.
