It does not have alot of programs such as medical programs, engineering, and so on. The campus is not that safe there are always pictures of people to look out for to try to be safe. The campus food seems to be the same each time. They should definitely also put in more hard work to investing into sports as well by adding Tennis and a Swimming team. The professors are not too invested into their jobs when students have questions some professors do not even answer even if it is through email or in person they dodge the questions asked by the students and alumni.

Stefany - 01/03/2023

I really enjoy taking classes here. Some of the professors are easy to contact but some don't answer your email. I say to search up the professor on rate my professor so you can get an idea of what professor to choose from. It has been peaceful here.

Arizona Western makes me feel safe to go to school here! I enjoy any and all opportunities that are available that come my way. I recommend going to AWC, especially since its close to home for me and I’m adjusting to being back stateside since living overseas for high school. It’s a good community college to go to and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

  7. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about my current school is that it shares the same campus with another college. The two colleges that are on campus are Arizona western College, and Northern Arizona University. This makes it different because there are different educational and maturity levels walking around. Another bad thing about my school is that there are hardly any clubs to get involved in and they don?t have sorority rows and or fraternity rows. So the college experience is not the same as if I was in a big city.

  9. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    One great thing about a community college is the size of the classrooms. Friends that are attending Universities complain about how many students are in each of their classes. Not being able to concentrate, participate, and even perform as great as one would with small number classroom. I believe with there being a small number of students the professor will be able to put a great input on the students academic progress and also if he/she is having problems with the information which is being taught at the time. I have yet to experience a classroom at a University.
