Campus Resources: i just really feel comfortable at my school

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.

Dorms, a library, computer labs, a fitness center, a pool, an eatery, and a game room are among the things that make AWC an outstanding college. Walking on campus, it doesn't seem like AWC was built in the middle of an arid region because of the well-maintained green landscapes that cover the campus. The providence of the Colorado River supplies water to the entire Yuma region. Students spend a lot of their study time at the computer lab, which has more than 120 computers equipped with all of the necessary software for their courses (Maple, SPSS, AutoCAD, etc.). Opening early in the morning and closing late at night, the computer lab is maintained by lab aides who also assist students in using the computers. The library also has computers that students can use, but the best thing about the library is that besides providing the necessary reading, visual, and audio resources, it also provides reading areas and study rooms of different sizes for group and individual use, equipped with audiovisual amenities for students’ needs. Some classes, recently innovated, are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, while others are designed simply and are used depending the type of course.

Students can get connected to the campus Wi-Fi from the library, eatery, Starbucks, and almost anywhere on campus. The network is reliable, thanks to the help desk service which maintains the technology on campus. Students can check out laptops at the Student Success Center and rent scientific calculators at a very low price. The Student Success Center is dedicated to providing free tutoring to improve students’ academic performances.

Campus Events/Traditions
  • AWC Job Fair: AWC holds a job fair organized by the Career Development office, to expose job and career opportunities to students. Local businesses, the army, the National Guard, and others participate in the event.
  • Family Night: This event aims to get the Yuma community involved with college activities. Career options are introduced to the participants, and each club will set up booths to provide information about their club. Music, food, drinks, and entertainment accompany the event.
  • Homecoming Week: This event takes place in the middle of the semester. Homecoming king and queen are chosen through votes, with candidates running their campaign during the week. A parade takes place, and each participating club decorates its golf cart for the event. The nicest golf cart is chosen, and results for the Homecoming king and queen are announced during the party that concludes the event.
  • New Student Orientation: During this event, each department (including Enrollment Services, Information Technology Services, Health Services, Campus Police, Campus Life, and Student Success Center) prepares an orientation session for incoming students. Students have to choose between a morning session and an afternoon session. College student representatives called "Matador Ambassadors" have to guide the different groups of students through the different sessions. This event is informative as well as fun.
  • Welcome Bash: The Welcome Bash is a party that concludes the New Student Orientation day. There is food, games, entertainment, and dancing. It usually goes from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Unique Features
AWC Solar Array: According to the "Guinness Book of World Records," Yuma, Ariz. is the sunniest place on earth. Based on this climate, the College is able to have a solar array on the rooftop of the Agriculture and Science building, which generates enough energy to cover nearly 100 percent of the College's daytime energy usage.
