4 College Senior

Career Services: It is easy to get a degree to transfer it to a higher education college/university.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is worth the time here in the college. Classes are cheap.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I like my college academic flexibility. They have a variety of classes to choose from.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I like this college because it has everything needed to succeed as a student. This college has great facilities and nice areas to study. The college dorms are not as good as the classrooms but living in them is a great experience. I like college staff, they are really helpful. Overall, I rate my college 7/10.

Overall Experience: If I could decide whether to go that same college or not, I still would choose to go. I really like this small community college because it offers a variety of degrees and certificates. Sure, it's not the best but at least you get the basics. I am glad that they have this small college here or else all of us would have had to move out to other places and get into different schools. After I graduated from high school I had barely turned 17 so I still didn't want to move out of the house. I felt way too young to start living on my own at a very faraway place like Tucson. Since my family doesn't have such a high income, we often struggle with paying some things, so that gave us a chance to get financial aid and that way I can still go to school. if I had gone to a bigger college, like a university, chances are I would be having to pay out of my pocket and probably even get a student loan. Since I have completed some credits here in Arizona Western College, when the time comes when I have to transfer to another school that focuses on my career, I will already be a little ahead. I could probably go in as a sophomore and save thousands of dollars. Many reasons like staying with my family for a while more can be given to why I would choose to attend this college again.

Tuition & Financial Aid: As for me, the school's tuition is the best, but that's because I get financial aid and everything is being paid. Since the tuition is a small amount of money compared to other schools, I do think it is worth what we are paying. I am getting the basic things I need to know in order to get my credits so I am doing fine with that. The school provides with all the necessary and basic things that we, as students, need. We really are getting what we are paying. If we want better things and a higher education then I guess we should just pay more.

Online Courses: Online courses can often be hard, especially when you don't quite understand the course. I usually learn better by seeing the person right there, teaching me something. Once, my mother was going to take an online class for Criminal Justice and as soon as she signed into her account, she got so frustrated and overwhelmed because of all the work she had to do. These online courses can be difficult at times, because one may not fully understand what the teacher is saying. The professor/student relationship is just bad because you probably never get to see the professors. I need to see my professor and to ask him questions face-to-face because I want an immediate response and not have to wait for them to email me back.

Career Services: Since I am currently attending a community college it is very hard to learn everything about a career, that you probably won't be able to find a job for over here. This college only has the basics for everything, but often, that isn't enough. The quality of the career center isn't the best because if you want to specialize in something, you won't get all the information you need here. This college is mainly to obtain an Associates degree but not anything higher than that.

Academic Flexibility: Flexibility among students and professors is just amazing. Our professors help us out a lot, they try to give us extra credit and other opportunities to improve our grades. They don't just make our work easier but they show us how things really need to get done. The professors that I have had in the past months have taught me a lot of new things that I hadn't stopped to wonder about. The way they do things is the best because that way we are always kept busy with work. We have enough work for the whole week, and honestly, it isn't even that overwhelming if we set apart time for everything.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: The Resources on campus are okay because in the student center you can get the help you need. I wouldn't say it's great because some times there aren't many tutors available. One can't walk in and expect to be helped right away so it is better to make an appointment beforehand. I know students that are participating as tutors in the writing center and they are really good at it. This tutor, in particular, listens to the student whom is in need of help and encourages him/her to keep on trying. Some of the papers I've read are really bad and not written correctly but tutors can sure help you with whatever they need or else they can ask someone else.

Campus Resources: Being able to print out in school and use the Internet is really helpful for almost everyone. Not all of us have a printer at home and often struggle to get our papers done. Thanks to the huge help we can get in the computer labs now all that is possible. You can actually rely on the network which is provided because it is somewhat fast and handy. For those who don't have a personal computer it can be very difficult to do their work but our computers have everything we may need to get a good grade in class.

Facilities: The school I am currently attending to is fairly good; the tuition isn't that much compared to many other schools. The campus size is fine because it isn't too big, there is enough space for everyone that is attending. The classes I have attended to are okay because there are only 24 students. Outside there isn't a lot of movement, everything seems and feels peaceful. The school is a nice place to be in and one can go there to study and/or do their homework. The people there are polite and kind, always helping each other out. For many people, this school might seem the most boring one ever but it has many advantages that we should appreciate.

Student Body: One thing that I mostly see in my school is conformity. Many of the students at my school just get too conformed with a C and do not try hard enough to achieve more. I try to not let it get me anymore so one thing I am starting to do is doing my homework with more effort and dedication. As one walks in during our English class, Facebook pages and phones out in the desk can be seen. It's obvious that having our electronics there is going to be a distraction to us while we listen to the lecture or do our work. I, myself, have done it too but am trying not too anymore. Although, many of the students in my college do their work, they don't seem to give more. Extra work is often required to achieve more things in life.

Career Services: When it comes to job seeking, there isn't much to choose from.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's quite easy. There are not millions of forms to fill out, and though I am a full-time student, I had have my financial aid leftover after all my tuition and books were paid. This also included the two winter session classes I took as well.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I think the classes aren't too bad, the workload is manageable, and the four professors I have currently are very helpful and are there if you have a question.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: For any smaller semesters such as the summer semester or winter semester, it is extremely stressful I thought. For some of the courses the workload is unbelievable. Though for some other course, it's somewhat manageable.

Student Body: I personally am unaware of the Student Body at my school. Since it is at small college, our Student Body is not very large.

Campus Resources: Arizona Western College has made it convenient for student to access any learning resource needed for enrolled courses. The Student Center is great for seeking tutor help, and the library is the perfect place to do homework and find books needed.

Campus Resources: There is wireless access throughout the whole campus. Unlike most campuses I have been on, the connection can be stronger in one classroom than another. However, AWC has never failed in any internet source needed by a student.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm thrilled to be here and getting this done with AWC.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The gym is great, the 3C building has the book store, Starbucks and the cafeteria.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Having access to wireless internet all over campus is great!

5 College Junior

Facilities: I have been very impressed with the cafeteria and library facilities.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Not all of the counselors suggest the same gameplan so you have to take charge and figure it out yourself.

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.
