Not the Best-But Pretty Close – Although, I have had my own concerns with West Georgia Technical College, my overall opinion with WGTC is a fairly good one. At times I have wished that I could live the &quot;campus&quot; live. Which West Georgia Technical College does not offer, but I am getting a very good education. In the end, that is more important than the typical &quot;campus&quot; live. My absolute favorite thing about West Georgia Technical College is how many give-away days they have. We have been given cups, shirts, free food, name plates, and many more things. I have enjoyed this so much! Thank you West Georgia Technical College for giving me the opportunity to have a good freshman year experience.

The student body at West Georgia Technical College is wonderful. Everyone that I have encountered and had conversation with has been really friendly. The typical student at my school range between the ages of 18 and 25, but there are a few students that are older. Although there is a large diversity in the student body, including age range, race, and economic status, I have only witnessed friendly situations and encounters. Everyone is very accepting at West Georgia Tech!

Recently a spokes person, so to speak, from Mercer University visited one of my classes and it was great! I hadn't really given the school much thought because of various reasons but after hearing her talk and finding out that there is a good potential of credits being transferred I'm very excited! This opportunity may not have existed if I wasn't at West Georgia Technical College.
