It was a great experience. You need to want to get involved like any other school.

Question
This is a small liberal arts school.AverageSociology
This is a small liberal arts school. I had the option of going to a few schools both private and public but something felt right about this campus. After I found out about this website I began to feel hesitant about WC. I thought I may have a bad experience but so far it has been great.I have met great people, the faculty has been extremely supportive, and the staff is very approachable. I never thought I would like this school as much as I do now. Everyone has a different experience and its what you make of the situation. The only thing I would change is the parking, we could use more of it and the dorms need to be upgraded. The food needs some upgrading as well. Over all, this school is pretty cool.

Question
The few good students that WC recruits endSuper BrilliantOther
The few good students that WC recruits end up transferring somewhere else because WC is a terrible school. All the good students who go to WC regret coming here. If you can imagine all the worst high school students dumped in one place, that's exactly what WC is like. The education is just like going to high school all over again. WC is always mistaken for a 2 year school or a 2 year trade school. In fact, you will get a far superior education at a local adult school or 2 year school. The teachers don't grade fairly. They will grade you based on if they like you. The sports teams are the lowest ranked, even within the Division 3. Do not go here. I cannot emphasize enough that WC is not a real college. It's more like a high school, only worse. The area surrounding WC is extremely unsafe. Even USC's is better. Don't come here or else you will regret it.
