4 College Junior

Overall Experience: For a small town the college is great!

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have not had to transfer credits yet, but when I transfer to a Florida University, I plan to transfer my credits. Hopefully it will actually go smoothly. My classes are not very flexible. I always have to rearange my personal schedule to fit in classes I need to take. It stinks when classes I want are cancelled but I need to maintain a specific amount of credits to graduate on time, so I have to take some random class I don't need because there are no classes available that I need at a decent time. Most of the credit transfer is done by you, not by the counselors. And they probably won't take most credits.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Personally I don't prefer online courses, but they help when you have no time to get to class or if a class is unavailable at a good time in your schedule. They are different from traditional classes. They work better for your schedule but they may vary in difficulty depending on what the professor requires from you. Most of my online classes were hybrid, meaning half in class and half online. There is a lot more technology features, so much of the homework and the tests are online. There might be more videos to watch or slides to look at versus classwork or written notes on a board. It is harder to understand when a teacher does not explain it, so online classes are best for those who can quickly figure out things on their own. The only peer-peer interaction is blackboard, and I didn't spend much time reading. I did my work and was done. There is little to no interaction between the professor and student, usually, and the workload is fine if you stay on top of things.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: Actually I really don't know much about the post-grad services at AWC. The career center is a great place for people looking for loccal or in-state jobs. Out of state, they basically can't and won't do much for you. I don't know antything about the alumni network. I am not prospecting for a job in this city because there is no marine biology in the desert.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Since I am a member in the Honor's Program, I am often in classes with very good professors. Many of the professors at AWC care about your success and ability as a student, as well as your future. They are often encouaging, passionate about their subject, and willing to help if you ask questions. The courses are good sources of knowledge and the professors teach well. I have only had one less than excellent professor during my experiences in classes at AWC.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't know too much about the school's employment services, and I haven't been to a graduation at my college yet. I have asked for internships and opportunities to help with my degree but Arizona Western College doesn't have anything really to offer to a marine biology major. For somoene who might be majoring in Mathematics, Music, or Air Conditioning, the college probably has many opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: As part of the Honor's club, my professors and advisors put effort into helping me succeed, but Arizona Western College is no place for someone with a Marine Biology Degree. Biology is the closest thing I can get to what I want to study at this college and basically throughout all of Arizona, so I'll have to transfer to another state to study what I want to. Nothing I really need or want for a marine biology degree is something I can achieve here. Even in Honor's, the workload is pretty easy. As long as you don't take more than you can handle, it's easy to go on with your schedule. I take advantage of the facilities presented to me in the Honor's club (free printing, a computer lab, couches, a quiet study space) and there are many internship opportunities available, as long as you are studying something that can actually be used in Arizona.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Arizona Western College is a decent place to get your Associate's degree. If you have big dreams, you're sure to be limited. Most professors care about your success and the college is pretty cheap, but many people want to get out as soon as possible because it's so small and boring here.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I've had no difficulty with the transfer of my credits.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have no issues approaching the staff and faculty for any assistance and guidance with my school work. they are friendly, courteous and willing to go above and beyond to be of any help.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Throughout the school year there are jab fairs and employers advertising their employment opportunities.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Although they offer a variety of different courses, some classes are only offered by one professor which makes accessibility a bit difficult but regardless, they have a good variety.

3 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Personally, I prefer attending classes in person. I have always struggle to learn with online classes so my experience may be a bit biased. However, from the online courses I have taken I can say it has been a good experience. I have been able to manage to get the hang of the classes and actually learn.

4 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: You have a lot of different opportunities once you get involve.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Small size classes and very specific courses is one of the best things about this school. Most professors are amazing at what they do, they teach and help you learn and they get really involved in their student's education and success.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I fell that when you get to graduate your oppotunities expand and you have a lot more experience in your field of study.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Personally I was not really sure what I wanted to study so at the beggining it was a bit complicated but once I chose my career everything began taking its place.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Great school environment, you are able to learn a lot not only about the classes you are talking but also about yourself.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The material covered is made simple to understand and follow.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
