3 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Some teachers are obviously not flexible at all and that makes life a lot harder, others though would let you have extended time and that was nice.

4 College Student

Online Courses: I've had mostly online courses so far, they're great.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The professors that I've had in the past aren't all that great. Very arrogant and a little bit rude. The classes are of average intensity.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: They usually have good recruits there, and they have a nice application filling out center there as well.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: West Shore is just a basic community college. Some of the professors aren't all that great, but the campus is okay for what it is.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I haven't actually taken online courses. I've heard they require a lot of busy work just because profs need to know you are participating. They also take an incredible amount of self-control I've heard.

3 College Senior

Career Services: There is a career center, but I haven't really used it. I don't think there is a whole lot of post-grad services other than that, however, probably simply because we are a community college and most students are arguably either planning to transfer or already have something lined up for when they are done - thereby not requiring much assistance anyway.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: If you do a little research before choosing classes, you can end up with AMAZING professors. I would suggest avoiding adjunct faculty - as those are more sketchy. The full time faculty, however, are simply wonderful! Most that I have had treat students with great respect.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I don't think an associates from West Shore is especially awe-inspiring. However, there is a career center on campus that can help hook you up with a job. So, although a degree isn't necessarily going to get you a job on the spot, there are ways to get work that the college will help you with.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm only going for an associates, so the major is pretty general. This area of study gave me experience with quite a few different kinds of studies, which was beneficial.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Especially my first year, my instructors really were my best friends. They truly cared how I did, were willing to offer help, were happy to work with me, and supported me in everything.

As always, some teachers are better than others. I really appreciated the majority of those I had - as they were willing to challenge me because they believed in me.

It's a small campus without a whole lot of campus life, but by the time I'm going to graduate, I created a whole West Shore group who hang out regularly and have a lot of fun. If you're willing to put forth some effort, you could create student life for sure.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: All of my classes have been very flexible, and were able to work around my personal schedule. I do prefer to have classes only two days a week, but I can manage to come in four days out of the week.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Some of the classes that I have had so far, has had work on the computer required for the class. I believe that I am a more traditional person, I like the classroom experience and interaction with students and professors more so then the online experience mainly because I learn better in that environment.

4 College Junior

Career Services: I have taken online career option tests, and overall I have been very thrilled with the different careers that were associated with welding. The career center, was very helpful and they have good workers in there that will give you the best advice possible for choosing a career.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had one course where my professor wasn't the greatest at teaching, it was more so based on work and more work then actually us students working together in groups and so on.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Every single on campus application available for west shore students has been great, I needed help for a paper at one point so I went up to the writing center and got help with my paper. The tech labs here are great, every single tech associate has been very helpful and useful when I need them.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I get hands on experience with welding, as well as a handful of different welding applications that will be viable for me in the near future. I have done some of the more basic concepts of welding so far, but I am slowly advancing into the more advanced classes as well as being able to learn more as I keep on going. The work load so far isn't too terribly bad, mainly because two out of my four classes I have hands on experience with welding.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The mission here at West Shore is for everyone to succeed, and for all of us to come together as a body of students to achieve everything that will make us successful in the real world.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: It's a great small college that you can go to, that want make your wallet empty as fast as a regular college. You know almost everyone, they are a a lot of clubs, and you get one-on-one interaction with the teachers. If you can't make it to class they always have a video for you to watch so you can still learn the material. If I had to chose a college all over again I would chose this one because its has better class sizes and my financial aid goes a lot further. My favorite thing is working in the library because I am surrounded by all the books I need to use in all of my classes and I know where nearly everything is.

3 College Student

Student Body: The student body is not very diverse, so I think it's difficult to find something new. It's not a refreshing crowd, but we have fun together.

4 College Student

Online Courses: I have been mainly taking online courses. I find them almost as engaging as face-to-face classes. My professors make sure to keep a tight circle through dicussions and forums.

3 College Student

Career Services: Most students transfer after two years at this school. I am a dual-enrolled student at WSCC. There are not many oppotunities for jobs in this small area. The career center does work hard to make sure you get a starter job to jump-start your career, then work your way up from there.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Haven't used the computer labs much, but wireless access is usually good.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: There are people from all over here at Western. I've met plenty and have heard great stories.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The school does a great job when it comes to class flexibility. You just have to go to your advisor first. It's their job to make your schedule a good one.
