Wilkes Community College Reviews
The online learning community for WCC was the easiest I have gone through save for when the COVID pandemic hit. For the teachers that taught in class, it felt as if they didn't know how to properly teach online which made it really hard to learn content. This made my scores lower. Although before the pandemic I found other online courses to be smooth and fun. I especially enjoyed Introduction to Film and learning about the different terms and genres of film.
My friend told me thid place was nice, I went around and they showed me around, and not gonna lie, bravo, that's all I have to say! Great college, great food, it honestly has everything you could want in a college.
My experience with Wilkes Community college has been one filled with variety. The teachers at WCC have been kind and caring about my grades. However, I find that the art major at the community college is lacking seeing how they only have one art teacher. I was hoping for larger opportunities when going to Wilkes but I only found a repeat of Highschool.
