It's a little rough getting yourself set up at WCTC, although I think when I started at WCTC in 2014 there were a bunch of changes being implemented and the staff were still getting used to them, or that's what it sounds like. I can understand that changes take time to become learned. I felt like I was asking questions during the admissions process that no one could answer but my adviser. My Adviser is intelligent, honest, and knowledgeable. She is one of my favorite parts about this school, I owe much of my success to Jessica Rolan. The Advising and Counseling schedule can be difficult to accommodate when you work Monday through Friday 8:30am-5pm, but so are doctor office or dentist schedules, not that unusual. The teachers are amazing also, I have learned a lot at this school. I have applied much of what I have learned into my everyday life and that's important to me. I love this school! I highly suggest it as an option to look into when picking colleges!

I am a Human Service Associate major. My classes are definitely what I expected. Some people complain about not being able to get into the classes they need when registration comes, but I have avoided those pitfalls thus far. The instructors in the program are great! They definitely do their best to give us plenty of exposure to the work field in Human Services and try to prepare us for those things in the classroom. If you&amp;#39;re a social person, like I am, then this is the program to make friends in as well. Everyone is compassionate and hard working and the students are extremely helpful with one another.
If you need help, the instructors are more than happy to assist you, but they expect you to pull your weight in the program. They won&amp;#39;t ask you if you need help, you must take initiative and responsibility for your own grade and competencies. I love this program. Until I entered an actual program, I was displeased with WCTC but now that I am pursuing the degree there, it has been great.

I absolutely love the class sizes here. The lowest class I've had was 8 students (which I enjoyed because it gave the professor an opportunity to get to know everyone, and interact with us on a regular basis equally). The highest I've had was 28 (which is great because then you can lean on each other in the classroom and get help from other students). I love the different styles, all the instructors I've had made their classes interesting in their own way. But I love the variety of activities we do in the classroom, (videos, lecture, quizzes, group work, etc.) It makes us engaged in what were learning.
