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.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Resources are available at a variety. Readily available and very helpful.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Classes were at a set time so there is no time flexibility with some programs but with individual classes there is.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: It is a very step by step college and provides assistance with almost everything.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's not the best college but it does the job. Tuition is not bad and the programs there are great.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I enjoyed my online classes. They were fun and flexible and I learned a lot from them.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: For being a community college my school was pretty great. Sure it's not perfect but I will miss all the maxing people that I have met there. The professors for the most part are amazing and I am glad to have been an AWC matador.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Asside from the few bad professors that are at my community college there are some pretty amazing ones. My chemistry professor Joseph Mitchell was always avaliable to help his students no matter what. The physics department is awful. I am a biology major and unfortunately the biology professors were pretty bad. I learned more from my lecturer professor at NAU even though I did not know him personally.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I had some awesome professors but surprising they were not from my major. My favorite professor Joseph Mitchell is awesome! He got his students to engage and love chemistry. He was always there to help his students!

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: It's a small school so resources to study were often not good. I did not have TAs for my science classes which was awful because those are some of the toughest courses. Also the tutors were not the best in the Student Success Center.

1 College Senior

Campus Resources: It is so slow. And it takes forever to download powerpoints for classes. It's the worst internet ever.

5 College Senior

Facilities: We have the largest solar panels in the country. We have the most number of them too since Yuma Arizona one of the sunniest places in the United States. We had energy efficieny on out campus and many new recycling bins for all types of recycling. The honors program helped me so much and without the programs support I would have flunked out.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I got a lot of scholarships though I think there should be more help for middle class citizens. I had a tough time getting help financially.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I had more trouble with transferring my credits to the university that I plan to attend this fall to complete my bachelors degree. Northern Arizona University takes forever to process transcripts and loses them frequently. AWC though got things done quickly and was helpful at sending my transcripts.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Special study options, facilities and professors were readily available.

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.
