There is a reason why Amarillo College is one of five top community colleges in the NATION! I absolutely loved Amarillo College. The class sizes are small so your professors really get to know you as a person. There is always something to do or get involved with when reading the college news. Although there is no on-campus living, if you are from Amarillo, commuting to the college does not take more than 15 minutes.

Whisper - 02/04/2021

I love Amarillo College. The college faculty is the best and they are very supportive and are there for you when you need it most. Everything that is fun can be done at Amarillo College. You can play games and socialize with friends and this takes place in a place called the burrow and it is full of things to do. It's great. There is always somewhere to relax and get work done.

Sadie - 01/01/2021

I love the college and professors, there always there to help. The professors make sure to help every student, unlike many collages. The classes are small, so it allows students to get extra help from there professors, and a better understanding of the lessons.

Zachary

I think it is a pretty good school overall, but the professor are so different there. Some are really understanding and nice but others from time to time can be super strict and hold no remorse to your grades while your in set class. But that just goes for most professor though doesn't it?

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I love college life. I think it's awsome. If I could go back in time and talk to myself when I was a senior I would tell myself to take high school more seriously. I would try to perfect my music reading and counting instead of thinking I already knew everything. My first day of private clarinet lessons my professor was very unimpressed, but once again I thought I know everything. I practiced only three times a week still thinking I was really good. When midterm came around I was sitting at a "C". I couldn't believe it. I decided that I need to change things. By the end of the semster I was practicing everyday for two hours, that the recommended minimum. I came out of the semester with an "A".
