Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.

Overall Experience: So far, as a first year student I'm liking the campus. The teachers are great and the way they teach is absolutely amazing. The thing I don't like about this campus some of the students and how they act. Some act mean, unfair, or just unfriendly towards other students which creates a hostile environment. I believe it is because this is a small campus and that students that do these feel they need to get attention. Overall, I think AWC is an amazing school only thing is that some of people at aren't as great as they think they are.

Campus Resources: There are many resources that can be used at AWC but the best one would be the library. There are a tone of books to read ad check out whenever a student wants to "kill time." It's also anther place to form a study group.

Campus Resources: The internet access at AWC is basic, not as fast as RoadRunner, but it gets students homework done. As long as students have access to internet to get there work done then that's all that matters.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: I think online courses are best to take only when a student can do the work and not procrastinate. I believe a person should take online courses that they'll understand because if they understand better online then in-class then take it. But if a student is taking the online corse because they don't want be in class that's a disadvantage because a student can earn a lot more in-class than online, just by engaging with professors and other students.

Career Services: The transfer was the most difficult of all because it was transferring California credits to Arizona credits. It was a long process, but I got to see what courses I can take.
