4 College Senior

Overall Experience: School is whatever you make it. I made it fun for myself and the people around me. AWC is located in Yuma Arizona so there's not that much stuff to do. But its whatever you make it.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Arizona Western College pride themselves on there student success lab. This lab provides free tutoring, the tutors will help you with any thing related to the course.

3 College Junior

Career Services: small class sizes and allot of people from out of town come, mostly for sports.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: i played sports while attending school and it was hard for me because we would have to be out of town but most teachers here love the sports and accomidate with us. some frustrations is the website were they post grades are down and sometimes you cant post assignments.

College Junior

Online Courses: i have not took a online course, but from what i hear some are either very strict or some give you all your assignments the fist day and tell you that they are done at the end of the semester.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: the libarary looks very 90's but they help allot and computer labs are good

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: the good thing about that school is they are good at getting athletes and students out into bigger schools, they really push for us to get out of the town and experiance new things.

3 College Junior

Facilities: they have computer labs that are open from eight am till ten pm

3 College Junior

Student Body: they have some fairs here and there but its not that big of a thing.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: it is allot for a commuity college and they limit Fasfa to only a certain type of person. The lowest some one got for it was $300, thats not even enough to pay one class.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: So far with me there has been no specail events, mostly it is independent.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The college offers as much as it can but it doesnt have allot. Very limited times for classes, registering is easy if you already know how to do it but you can get lost with the information given.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: Student body is mostly hispanic/Catholic locals and military members/spouses from the local Marine base.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Had good experiences with most of my classes. Professors varied on their flexibility, as typical. Some would do anything to assist you while others displayed no interest in accommodating in any way. AWC accepted nearly all my transfer credit, except for classes completed 10 or more years prior.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: All mentioned resources are available on this campus and were of average value. The campus is green and pretty.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Wifi is poor to non-existent on campus except in specific areas such as Starbucks.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Majored in psychology and participated in the school Psychology and Psi Beta Clubs. Members were close knit and the advisor was a very likable mentor.

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is very reasonable.

The financial aid office at AWC was a mixed bag experience. Some semesters it was flawless, and others, a huge hassle. Not anything worse than I have experienced at other schools.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Online courses were available but not as many as I would have liked.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: AWC is the average community college experience. I enjoyed my time here and met many students and staff that were great. It's a nice campus and has all the basics covered in your junior college experience. That said, the school isn't really anything of note, but you wouldn't necessarily expect a community college to be. It's the only local college in the Yuma area, and it fills it's intended role well. I'm happy to be an alumni.

5 College Senior

Facilities: There are awesome facilities and the college is becoming greener as to environment and I think it is great.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Great students here. a very diverse selection of students and all manage to get along and do team work to help each other out.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I prefer in class because there is more face to face and instructors have more time to explain things to students.

3 College Senior

Career Services: haven't had much of an experience.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Great, could be a little faster but for a large network what can you ask for.

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.
