Such an excellent school! This is a great place to attend! I would completely recommend this to others.
This has been a very good experience. Since joining Wilkes Community College it has opened many doors for me allowing me the chance to join multiple honor societies and volunteer experiences. Not to mention it also gives plenty of opportunities for students to get involved with programs like the Wilkes Community College Ambassadors and clubs. They also have programs to help students in their studies such as Supporting Academic Goals for Education (SAGE) and the Academic Support center.
