I really enjoy the school and people and if you need help you can always find it. The teachers are available to speak to about anything even if you have to email them they are always quick to respond. The people are really friendly and will go out of their way to help you.

Jonathan

Very good college at a fantastic price of admission. Many opportunities inside and outside classes. Fellow students are friendly. I haven't had a bad professor here, all are friendly, care about their student's success, and understand their subjects with passion.

Gabriella

It's a really cute little college and I enjoy the proximity of my classes. It has some great little study rooms and the library is really nice. I do wish there was more natural light in the math and behavioral science building. And now the cafe has closed down so you have to go off campus to find food that isn't from a vending machine. The teachers do an excellent job and are always accessible. If you put in the effort, this college can do great things for you.

Hannah

I am overall fairly fond of Walter's State so far. I will be attended my first semester there this fall and am very excited about it. Everyone that has helped me along the way has done a fabulous job and I'm really looking forward starting the journey of my career there.

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

    I would tell myself to go straight to the admission office and enroll in college classes. Please dont put it off and think that you will go to school later because you will not do it. I would tell myself to get good, sound advice from adults " who have been there and done it", especially from the college advisors. A college education would open more doors, opportunites, and advancements in life than a high school diploma would. I would tell myself , by returning to college now late in life, has given me confidence and assurance that I can be anything I want. That there are no hurdles that cannot be jumped if you dedicate yourself . The choices that I had to make in life would have been easier if I had an education at an early age. I would tell myself to do the 3L's. They are Listen, Learn and Live !

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

    Walters State Community College is an excellent choice! Coming straight from Highschool I often worried about college. If I chose to attend a big College campus where you only saw your teachers on a projector screen. I was relieved that Walters State Community College was very small and the class room size was just perfect for me. From my very first day of college I met some great friends and even very wonderful teachers that really care and want you to do well in your classes and to be successful thought your life.

  6. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    I did not have the foresight to apply to multiple colleges. Unforseen changes in my life made it a difficult process to decide which options were the best to take. My simple advise is "Give yourself options". It is better to spend some money on college applications to schools you may not plan on attending, than it is to wish you had before the deadline has passed. This advise would have been the most useful for me had I received it.

  7. What's unique about your campus?

    I consider the "best thing" about Walters State to be their accessability. This is the case on many fronts. I am a nontraditional student. I graduated high school in 1985. I am a 43 year old mother of two teenaged children, and recently decided to continue my education. I have been made to feel included and welcomed as a student. The staff go out of their way to assist the students. Many satellite campuses insure that students may achieve their educational goals. In addition, the tuition is affordable for a working mom. My kids might say,"It's all good !".

  12. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    Students that didn't enjoy high school shouldn't attend Walter State. In my opinion Walter State is just like high school because it's in a small town where everybody knows each other and you are in college with people you have known sense elementary school and grew up going to the same schools. Walter State has the same rules as high school and I don't feel like I have the freedom I should have in college. It's just isn't the college experience I was expecting, so Im transfering in the fall.

  21. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    The stereotype for students that attend WSCC is that of people that can't really afford to go off to a university. This stereotype is far from the truth. I have encountered many student during my time there that are attending WSCC because they want to get their GPA up before transferring, or they want to start off close to home and then transfer. Many people I have encountered "have money" if you will, but picked an easier path to start on.
