3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, as a first year student I'm liking the campus. The teachers are great and the way they teach is absolutely amazing. The thing I don't like about this campus some of the students and how they act. Some act mean, unfair, or just unfriendly towards other students which creates a hostile environment. I believe it is because this is a small campus and that students that do these feel they need to get attention. Overall, I think AWC is an amazing school only thing is that some of people at aren't as great as they think they are.

Campus Resources: There are many resources that can be used at AWC but the best one would be the library. There are a tone of books to read ad check out whenever a student wants to "kill time." It's also anther place to form a study group.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The internet access at AWC is basic, not as fast as RoadRunner, but it gets students homework done. As long as students have access to internet to get there work done then that's all that matters.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: I think online courses are best to take only when a student can do the work and not procrastinate. I believe a person should take online courses that they'll understand because if they understand better online then in-class then take it. But if a student is taking the online corse because they don't want be in class that's a disadvantage because a student can earn a lot more in-class than online, just by engaging with professors and other students.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: The transfer was the most difficult of all because it was transferring California credits to Arizona credits. It was a long process, but I got to see what courses I can take.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: I would say the students around the campus are very engaging to other students. Whenever an event is happening they're so spirited and full of joy an get every other student to engage into the activity.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think the tuition is expensive. I didn't pay as much for California as I did here. I don't qualify for financial aide and therefore have to pay for my courses out-of-the-piggy-bank. It's difficult but as long as I get my education I'm fine with price.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The academic system is great, but I think that the facility takes too long in evaluating credits when a new transfer student transfers in. For example, if a student had already settled in picking classes as paid for their books and the facility told that student that they didn't need the courses they would waste their time and money. I was enrolled in two English course in California and when I transferred here AWC didn't accept them but as electives because they feel it wasn't up to the English Requirements. Then when I took the English course here it was the same subject-matter as I learned in the English courses in California.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I think AWC it's a great college and a great campus. Not just the campus but the teachers are great as well. Arizona Western College is built with an amazing environment and theirs different diversities which is something I enjoy on a lot on campus. Only thing I would put up a red flag is that AWC has one of NAUs branch and that branch teaches only science as agriculture classes.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: It is not great. There are some classes that are very difficult to get into, and some advisers are not knowledgeable on what classes are required as pre reqs.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The library and computer lab are very spacious. The student center offers great help free of charge and is a great place to work for.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: In most buildings the wireless access is great, though there is one building where you cannot get any service.

2 College Sophomore

Career Services: Job prospects are very low in this town.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The most unique things about my school are the class sizes and the student relationships with the professors. It is very easy to get one-on-one help from the professors.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It is great to be a biology major at my school. The professors all love the sciences and are more than happy to assist you in a research project. There is also a science club that offers multiple opportunities to get experience both on and off of campus.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The academics at my class are really good. The professors are great at their jobs and the workload is manageable. the registration process is fairly simple, though there are some classes that are near impossible to get into.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I have only taken one online course but I did enjoy it. The workload was very manageable and the professor was very easy to get into contact with. The registration process was easy and there was a good amount of peer-to-peer interaction.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I do not qualify for financial aid, however the tuition here is so affordable that I have been able to pay as I go on a payment plan. Even though tuition is low you get a lot of bang for your buck at this college. Class sizes are very small and professors know their students by name. I have been able to work with professors outside of class both through science club and research projects. Even though this is a community college in a semi small town the professors make it a great experience.

There are many things that make AWC an outstanding college. The small size of the classes allows the instructor to pay attention to everyone, knowing each student by his or her name. The flexibility of class schedules allows students to adjust their extracurricular activities with their school time tables. The affordable tuition allows students to save money while preparing to transfer to a four-year university. Plus, the faculty members are always ready to serve the students. Students are assigned an adviser to help them make important decisions on their academic journey. You can get connected with your laptop to the campus Wi-Fi from the dorms, the cafeteria, Starbucks, or the library. Staying in the college dorms keeps you close to everything. The library offers study rooms of different sizes that you can book for your academic needs. The Student Success Center offers free tutoring in different subjects, as well.

Attending AWC gives you the chance to embrace a new community. Through the diverse nationalities of the international students attending the college, AWC opens the door to a global community and provides the opportunity to discover different cultures. You can join one or more of the many student clubs, such as the Science Club, the Radiologic Technology Club, the Rotaract Club, and the I Team (international team), just to name a few. Besides these individual clubs and organizations, faculty-supervised programs (such as the Matador Ambassador program, the Honors program, Phi Theta Kappa, and the Student Government Association) provide leadership and connection opportunities and also a chance to get scholarships.
