Wake Tech is a great school! It's a community college, so students don't live on campus, they commute. There are many different types of students here, from those who are working and doing technical programs to those who are just fresh out of high school to even College Promise students who are dual enrolled in Wake Tech and high school courses. It's amazing the diversity that the student body has and most professors are great. As an online student, I have nothing but good things to say about their platform. It's organized, professors communicate well, and everything is usually pretty organized. I will say that this does depend on the professor you have though, because they have a lot of free reign over their classes. This can sometimes mean that you have deadlines all throughout the week for four different classes, which can be difficult to manage at times, but if you have good professors you'll be fine and the workload is manageable. Be sure to look up professors on RateMyProfessor to make sure you get someone who knows what they're doing and is passionate about their subject matter. Every school can have teachers who don't really care or put in the time for their students, but my experience largely at Wake Tech is that most professors care a lot and go out of their way to help you so long as you communicate. They also have a lot of services, athletics, student organizations, diverse programs, multiple locations across the Wake County area, and are really committed to diversity and inclusion. Overall, it's a great school, super affordable with lots of financial aid available and help provided throughout the enrollment process, and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the area.
I've been in Wake Technical Community College's program for the past four years, and I can confidently say it has not been wasted. I have enjoyed nearly every single class I have been a part of, and FREE classes for North Carolina HS students is a huge blessing. Additionally, their facilities and faculty are top-notch, and I have felt safe every time I've stepped on their many campuses. Overall, I would highly recommend Wake Technical Community College to anyone pursuing an Associate's degree or certification in their field of study.
It's great but it definitely has it's pros and cons. I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to try college without necessarily committing, if that makes sense. Their academics are wonderful and they have something for everyone. There is not any on-campus housing, but there are lots of things surrounding the multiple campuses. (Including housing, food, and so much more!)
It was alright, but it was difficult to navigate when you first arrive. A lot of the advisors will tell you different things and lead you in a direction you weren't planning to go. I was attending the wrong classes for two whole semesters before I went back and was finally informed about my other options. Their library is nice I enjoyed that facility. I didn't really use other facilities. They do okay in the disability department but, you need to come super prepared because they don't always give you all the information you need at the beginning. I also had an issue with the first person I had assisting me in the disability department. Overall it's alright academically, but anything else you need assistance with they seem to be lacking in that department.

Dear highschool self,
You are not a freak, not broken, not damaged. You have Asperger's Syndrome and, while you don't think like other people and you see the world differently than they do, embrace that. Being an Aspie need not be a disadvanage. It is up to you to choose your path in life. College may get hard, and you will experience bumps in the road that others won't understand, but you also have a gift for finding patterns and for out-of-the-box thinking that let's you find solutions no one else can.
Also, you don't have to be alone. There are people out there that will appreciate your differences and see the wonder of what you are. They are rare, like precious diamonds, but they exist and are worth finding. They can help you understand the world and succeed in college and all of your other endeavors.
Be proud, younger self. Be brave. Take chances and dare to fail. Fear and confusion will be your worst enemy, but they only have the power that you give them.
My school is very small but it also has that as its advantage; the teachers are able to focus on the indvidual student while the student can speak with the teacher more easily.
There are students from all walks of life and they all seem to get along well.
Wake Tech is a very good school. They have very knowledgable staff and will work with you one on one if you need additional help. The transfer program which I am taking, allows you to be very flexible and take the courses that benefit you the most and will help you get into the university of your choice. Wake Tech offers courses in most fields of work. The school offers tons of technical training which gives you hands on experience. Wake Tech would make a great school for any and all ages, at any professional level.
My community college is different from other schools because it is cheaper, it's within a reasonable distance from my house, the classes are great, and they have services to help struggling students, and most of all I can transfer my credits to any college in the state of North Carolina!
Wake Tech is well known for it's game design and engineering programs, as well as it's medical technician certifications.
The person capable of succeeding is the kind of person who should attend this school. Wake Technical Community College is focused on providing students, regardless of age, race, or any other socioeconomic identifier, the means to attain their academic goals. For me personally, Wake Tech has enabled me to save money on my decade-long journey to finally acquiring my Bachelors degree. The same can be said for many other individuals that I have come into contact with while at Wake Tech. The type of person who strives to succeed is the one who should attend this school.
The most frustrating thing about my school at this point in time is that I can't be there every day! I attended a community college fresh out of high school, and I was not ready to learn. I didn't want it or think I needed it. I was smart, and I had the world available to me at the time. I wanted to explore, get out of my small home town, get a taste of the realy world. Now that I've done that I know that school is, now, the right place for me to be.

The worst thing about his school is the image that it gives off to the general public. Most view Wake Tech as a school where "losers" or "failures" go when they have no other options. This is not even close to true because many people, including myself, go to a school like Wake Tech for financial reasons.
Wake Tech really is for all types of people!
I brag about the amount of degrees and certificate programs that are available through the college that I attend.
I think that Wake Tech is a good school, a little sketchy and night so be careful.
A typical weekend consists of doing homework and hanging out with friends & family.
Wake Tech does't have dorms.
The professors are super, nice, awesome, helpful, encouraging, and amazing.
The classes are challenging, but amazing. The professors always have office hours, where they can give extra assistance to their students. Every class will challenge each student and a student will come out of the class well prepared in that subject.
Psychology, sociology, and British Literature are the most popular.
I really was not as involved as I wish I had been. The Christian/Religious groups were fun, I would bounce around and volunteer with them.
Parking is horrendous, unless you get to school earlier than 8am.
