The student resources are fairly adequate with the addition of the Emerging Technology Center on our campus this year. There are always plenty of computers available to use in the Allied Health Building as well. The student center is a great place to meet up with your friends and relax. The college is always emailing out a newsletter notifying students of up and comings on campus, especially events in the student center. I had the fantastic opportunity to attend the Hispanic Heritage Celebration put on by the college's culinary art students and Grammy Award winning Sones de Mexico - amazing food and amazing music! The college is away well kempt. You always see the maintenance personnel working outside or in the buildings on something.

My experience at West Kentucky Community and Technical College has been phenomenal. I am a student at a local high school, and I was offered the opportunity to take college classes and participate in college life at WKCTC on a daily basis. This program has saved my life. We had three schools consolidate into one ginormous school and a whopping number of over 2,000 students attend this school. Finding a crowd to fit into was hard, but making a few friends here and there made it bearable. Moving to WKCTC has made my life exceptionally better. Not only am I working towards my degree in marketing, but I am also away from all of the drama and immaturity that comes with high school. West Kentucky Community and Technical College has changed my life. I am now put face to face with so many more responsibilities than the average high schooler has to come in contact with. WKCTC is the place for me. The beautifully landscaped campus is my home away from home.

I am learning everything I could have possibly imagined at such a reasonable price. The cost is more than half of what I had to pay at my previous university. At my other school, my financial aid was messed up for four semesters in a row. Here, I didn't have a single problem! It's amazing!
