I have read some of the posts inQuite BrightPsychology
I have read some of the posts in this forum and I was shocked1 the professors I have had until this present time, have provided challenging work, quizzes and classwork. Mr. Hamaoui, Mr. Skibo, Mr. Mitrione, Mr. Krozac. Mr. Thompson and Ms. Pickett to name just a few. They were all supportive of the students and tried to provide as much assistance as possible. However, their classes were not easy, you had to study and do the work.

There are quite a few adjuncts, which are just as challenging as the professors, but it is up to you to choose your classes. They also have the honors classes, through Phi Theta Kappa if you you require that extra challenge to avoid boredom.

The students are very nice and many sit within groups, so it is up to you to make friends. Either you are a social butterfly or you are not. It falls on you. They have many clubs, usually on Wednesdays and everyone is asked to join. They also have many activities, shows and even lectures if that is what you want. However, once again it is up to you to make yourself known.

The one thing that stands out in this beautiful campus, is the help provided to disabled scholars. There are quite a large number of disabled scholars and they have a support center for them that provides tutoring, as well as other services. There is also a food pantry for those in need. Overall. I believe that this college is what you make of it and it is up to you to provide the challenges you need, make friends, and learn tolerance of others.

WCC was never my first choice, but itQuite BrightPerfomance Arts
WCC was never my first choice, but it just got worse as time went on.
As much as the campus is beautiful, the quality of education is not quite tip-top, to say the very least. To begin with, I take a class in which all the teacher does is play movies and show power-points and I have to sit there and think, "How did I end up here after graduating High School in only 3 years?" and my second thought of "Why am I paying for this?" I take another class in which I am nearly laughing because the material is so remedial if I didn't laugh, it would insult my intelligence to be sitting there. I am not trying to sound arrogant, but it's just the cold hard truth. I get nothing out of most of my classes. Yes, the teachers I have seem to be very amicable and helpful, but the classes they teach do nothing for me.

I have been at the college almost three full months and have met approximately 1 person who is not a druggie and a drunk and my only friend happens to be both. I have severely lowered my standards of proper companionship in order to make friends here. Essentially, every time I step foot on campus, I become depressed and shut down. As an empath, I know that I am not the only person who feels this way. A lot of kids walk around as I do- alone and distraught with no intention to open up. And it isn't only because they're drunks and druggies looking for their next fix, it's because they don't want to be there and are only there due to financial reasons. I have only been here about 3 months and I am already looking to transfer out....and looking desperately. The only reason I am here is because I graduated early and my parents don't want me to go away. This is a plea; if you are looking to enter this college, DON'T. If you are in this college, GET OUT ASAP.

Good school.Not so bright
Good school. i just don't understand some of the complains from some people in this forum. at least on the science dept, if one didn't find it somewhat challenging, you either got a easy adjunct or they just dedicated themselves to take the easiest courses as possible during their school time. just saying! then everything else, everyone is spot on. no social life, drug crazy kids, hateful parking lot etc.
