Overall Experience: My experience at Arizona Western College has been great, and if I had the opportunity to start all over again I will definitely do it. AWC gave me the opportunity to gain a degree, and I am really happy about it. After 10 years living in mexico, I thought that trying to get into college was something unthinkable, and I remember that I just went to AWC for basic information, and I finished being a registered students since that day. The accessibility is great, the professor are excellent, and I believe that is better to start your general classes at a college like this because you will pay less for the same credits/classes.

Student Body: Personally, I believe that Arizona Western College needs to implement a project that will help students interact with each other in a positive way. From my experience, I can say that from 25 students only 5 students participate in class. I do not know if it is because they are shy, but I have noticed that our overall interaction is really poor. This college is full of Hispanics, followed by white people, African-American and some Asian origin students. I have met a few people from other countries, and I think that maybe what this college needs is to have more students from all around the world, in order to create a multicultural environment.

Academic Flexibility: As I am currently pre-registered at NAU, I believe that the transfer process is not that hard as long as you complete with all the institutional requirements under your specific major. Like we have to complete Eng 101 and 102, we need and specific math level, in my case MAT 142, we have to complete 2 writing intensive courses, 2-3 lab sciences courses, and other general classes that add up to 64 credits that are 100% transferable.

Online Courses: In my opinion it is better to be in a traditional classroom because the relationship between teacher and students it is better than being in an online class. I had 3 online classes this summer, and I can say that I perfectly understand the purpose of one of the classes. In the other to classes, the teachers availability was really poor, and I think that highly affect the result of our grades.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: My specific major is in Elementary Education, and I can say that all advisers and professors had helped me to complete all my requirements to rapidly get my Associates degree. I was able to enroll in a great program called AWC2NAU, that is helping me to successfully complete my classes at AWC in order to be able to transfer over to NAU. I was already enrolled at NAU, and in the PACTO program, which is a great program that allow students to have a connection with NAU advisers and students, that are always willing to help us with any concern. They also provide us with tutors, and grouping sessions to make sure we have no problems in any of are classes.

Academic Experience: The academics offered at my school are great. Most of the professors have a Master's degree, or Ph. degree, and they are professionally prepared to teach their classes. The class registration process has a division, where students with more credits can register first that students with less credits.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience with all my professors. They are always helpings us with our classes, and some of the professors have even become are personal psychologists. Most of them are always willing to listen to our problems and give us great solutions or ideas. In the other hand, it is hard to compare the effectiveness of the classes as an average, but I can say that all my classes had helped me to succeed in my academic life, regardless if I had a hard time on them or not. My overall experience at this college had been great, and I highly recommend high-school students to start their first 2 years of college at AWC.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: They have a link where students can go and check the school jobs availability as well as others job that have a closer relationship with the college.

4 College Senior

Career Services: Arizona Western College was a great Career Services programs called jobs for matador. They help us to get in touch with real jobs and internships related with our major, and they also help us to create resumes.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: In my opinion Arizona Western College's campus resources are great. The librarians are always willing to help you with any concerns you may have. Computers are always available for you, and the internet is very fast and effective. I am not currently related with any club organization, but from the ones I know, they are really helpful and they always want to create a friendly environment with all the campus students.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition and fees are okay for a community college, but the tuition for non resident students is extremely high. I finally got my residence and everything is better now, but like I did not have enough money when I was not a resident I was only able to get 6 credits per semester, and therefore I lost a lot of time. My financial Aid experience at AWC had been great. I had no problems in getting my money on time.

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.
