Before making the final decision to attend Western Piedmont Community College in Morganton, I considered enrolling in McDowell Technical Community College which happened to be located in my own town of Marion, NC. Although McDowell Tech was closer to me by 20 minutes, I really appreciated the whole student community and location of WPCC more. A large number of students who attend McDowell Tech are those who graduated straight from McDowell Highschool, while at WPCC, there seems to be a greater diversity among students, as well as a pervading sense of belonging and friendship that the whole college shares.
We have a beautiful campus. I would say we have the best community college campus in NC.
