What is your overall opinion of this school?

West Coast University has provided me one of the best educational experiences I have ever received. The instructors, students, and faculty go above and beyond to demonstrate their ambition for success. I will always recommend WCU as a school my peers should apply to if interested in the field of Nursing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

West Coast University is a school that I feel is devoted to helping its students succeed. They have countless career opportunities to help place us in the right job for us once we graduate. The online portal and communication with office staff and teachers is very easy and always available. I feel that my school really does want me to succeed and have a career that will give me a bright future.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

It feels like a commuter school. You go to class and leave. It also seems very money hungry. They will say almost anything to get you to attend.

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

I would have challenged myself more. I would have tried new things and joined clubs and activities where I could meet new people and find out what my interests were. I was really lost senior year and had no idea what I wanted to study in college, I wish I had explored this more. I would also tell myself that high school is not the real world. That the cliques end and often times the bullies will end up working for you.

What's unique about your campus?

It is an accelerated program so you will receive your degree faster.

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

What I have gotten out of my college was rather unexpected. I learned that people don't care as much. At first I took it bad, it was depressing that people at campus did not care about me, only that I had enough funds to cover my schooling. Now I view it in a different way. People still don't care but now I don't expect them to. I've become much more independent and self-sufficient. If I don't understand something I will ask it in class a few times. If after that I don't receive an appropriate response, I will look up the answer myself because nobody else will do it for me. This is a great lesson to learn but not one I believe is worth 100K! Either way, going to college has made me stronger and in the end, it's all I can ask for. I want to be strong individual and leader for my future.

What's unique about your campus?

Some of the instructors don't like the establishment and are very understanding of the situations we are put in. Because of it, some of them can be very understanding and will go the extra mile that the school itself should have done. Some instructors have great patience and knowledge to help those that are struggling in the accelerated. Best thing about this school is Professor Bosveld, she will take the time to teach you the right and will expect you to know the answer for her very hard tests.

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

The lack of resources available to those that need them. There is a lot of learning that you have to do on your own. Teachers are overworked and underpaid so they're constantly tired, to no fault of theirs'. WCU is very unorganized, faculty and administration often have conflicting thoughts and ideas. Everything here is always last minute; you may be told to put in paperwork within 1 day without any previous warning. Get everything in writing! Expect the run around from administration, they often don't know what they're doing, just collect paychecks.

I think what's unique is the a good majority of the classes are one month long.

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

In my many years of college I have experienced quiet a bit and it has been valuable to attend because I got a great education and met wonderful people and instructors in the process. I have learned how to be determined and to work hard for what I want because taking the easy way out won't get you far in life. The education I have received so far has been amazing and I am so thankful to everyone involved in my learning.

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

I don't consider anything to be the worst thing about my school. I love the format and the class structures. The instructors are great as well.

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

Community college was not initially a choice, but was the disappointing result of a deteriorating economy. Throughout my first semester at Pasadena City College, I gradually came to realize that attending PCC was truly a blessing in disguise. For the first time in my life, I genuinely believed myself capable of succeeding; my self-doubt diminished, while my determination grew. I fell in love with learning, and, in the process, had my eyes opened to countless opportunities I had never previously considered nor thought possible, such as studying abroad, finding a niche in psychology, or considering the pursuit of a masters or doctorates degree. With the encouragement from an incredibly supportive professor, I began to recognize my own gifts, talents, and potential. My diligent efforts were positively affirmed, and I noticed a transformation in both my GPA and self-esteem. This feeble attempt to verbally express the significance of this experience seems overwhelmingly inadequate, compared to the profound appreciation resonating within me. PCC unearthed a blossoming confidence and ignited a fervent fire in my heart, while challenging me to love myself, and gain new perspectives and understandings of the world, society, people, the future, my career, my education, and myself.

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

My college experience has been wonderful ever since I have attended West Coast University. It has not been confusing as other students from school had descirbed, but rather exciting. I have met new friends and learned many things from the people that I have interacted with. It was a valuble experience to be here in my school because I have opened up to a new life that I have never been introduced to before.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Students that shouldn't attend this school are people that are not flexible for school hours or lazy. This school is very precise and uptight because it has a very strict system.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about my school is that it does not give you all the information I needed when I attended this school.

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

I have received an education that is transferable to the real world. Being able to approach my outside life logically, intelligently, and cognitively has been of extraordinary value. I see ideas through different perspectives as opposed to one viewpoint. I can offer my opinion on a matter with decisiveness and conviction. Through college, I have grown exponentially and have broken the odds by mastering classes that will transform my future. By having a sound education, this will allow me to be the best I can possibly be, which is why college has been valuable to attend. Thank you.

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

Each day is a new college experience. Looking over the course catalog in the beginning I felt overwelmed with excitement and fear. What if they asked something I did not know. What if I wasn't smart enough to go back to school and get my degree. A multitude of thoughts raced through my head, each one creating a slat in the fence to keep me from completing my education. Finally, I picked a class, registered and began to pull those slats away. Upon entering my first class I was told I needed an e-mail account. Being I never used a computer, I called my daughter and she set up an account for me and then she had to tell me how to use it. This was the beginning of my great adventure. Learning how to use a computer, write an APA report, acceptance from other students many years younger then myself and teachers that raise the bar and push you to do more then you think is capable of yourself, this is true acedemia. These are only a few of the great things I have experienced. College is a valuable asset, it is life unfiltered including an education.
