Campus Resources: We do not have a athletic center, but the student center is a cool spot to come to. There is always someone there to help you with anything that you may need.

Campus Resources: It is up to speed as for network reliability, speed, wireless access. The only thing that I have not tried to do yet is pair my laptop to the school wireless printers. but I have received certain computer software that has really came in handy at different times.

2 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: I do not like taking on line courses, for the fact that I can not interact with the teacher verbally. Plus am more of a see and hands on learner to fully get to learn things. The whole emailing and wait for a response plus when I did not fully understand something it got harder for me.

Academic Experience: I am not the only person their in school for CAD/AD, so it is a cool thing to have other people to talk to about the classes and advise while in class and just working hard to receive our degrees.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I came to the school do to the interest I have with drawing and wanting to do something I like instead of doing something I have to do. To make ah life for my family and just myself as a man.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have had the luck of getting ah math teacher and a career management teacher that would help me even when I did not show that I needed help. Even after I passed the class I would see them, and they would enquirer about the classes that I had after theirs. Its a real caring feeling that they gave off to me.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The people that help you do the process to receive financial aid are very helpful, & give off the vibe that they really do care about helping the student get the process done.

Facilities: Some of the stay see you and will speak everyday. But some of the staff members will walk by you in the hallway, if you have never had they as a teacher, nor had to speak to them in a one on one conversation.

Student Body: The class's that I have had so far has been a good working helpful environment. This includes the teachers and students that worked with each other to accomplish the daily activities.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Right now, the schedule that I have been receiving has been flexible for my commute from home to my child and back to school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I have not been able to find a job since I have started there, but the staff are very helpful. Plus they see me in the hallway and ask questions about how things are going.

4 College Junior

Student Body: Mostly everyone that works in the school, such as professors,faculties take the time to sit down and help each individual with any situation they have. They also work well with students availability since I have a baby I need to change my availability so it can work out with my personal life, and work as well. They have meetings every semester to see how the Criminal justice program is doing and if there are any changes this school pretty much keeps us updated frequently.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition keeps going up each year, but the only changes I have noticed are new MAC computers in graphic design and leather sofa and loveseat in the student break room/commons. I do not see the justification. Although the financial aid department is very courteous, they only offer traditional avenues for aid. Not much opportunity for work/study.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Quite a cosmopolitan mixture of students. I feel it is wonderful and enables us to broaden our horizons and become globally socialized. There are a good percentage of older students and the mixture with those newly out of high school we can offer words of wisdom to the younger students. The younger students can bring fresh ideas and enthusiasm to the older students

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Overall I feel that the online instructors are not as accessible as necessary. It takes too much time to get responses to emails with some instructors and at times I feel as though I'd do just fine reading the text on my own. The lectures are usually less than two pages per week. This is not enough and I would prefer some video lectures.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is a print center on campus which allows color printing of over-sized material. The computer labs have all the necessary programs but do not dump files on a regular basis, therefore some programs slow down or crash during the term as more items are saved or fill the cache.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Student Services provides employment assistance during school as well as post-graduate. The library could use more material relevant to studying for course certification exams.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My experience at Westwood has been great. All the proffessors actually care and will do anything they can to help you learn and get good grades.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I really enjoy taking online courses at Westwood College. The instructers are very helpful and the work load is sufficient. I was nervous about taking online courses in the beginning because I thought that I may not learn like I would in a normal classroom, but that was not the case at all. Online courses also helped me learn how to teach different things to myself and I am not so dependent on teachers now.

Campus Resources: What Makes West Wood Different – Westwood is different from other school because you don't need to worry too much about who you are and how people treat you. Facilities make sure you are on track with financial needs, job finding and lost-and-found items. Although it's not our typical campus life where you live in a dormitory or eat meals during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Academic programs are really something, like it gives you the idea that you are learning something and being more hands on than listening or note taking for your test. There aren't very much tests but when there are tests or quizzes, we are ready to take them and score at least B or above. What I found really unique are some contests of free give-a-ways, I've never experienced much contests yet but I hope in the near future I can test my knowledge and join in on some contests on campus.
When I actually did a campus visit it grabbed my attention and it was straightforward where my admission representative explained everything that I needed to know. Versus other school, I found their tours very boring and it made me feel like I didn't want to attend to that school in general.
