This school and their curriculum are antiquated and a waste of time and money. Nobody there cares to help you. Don't bother calling with questions.
Just taking some general ed. classes- it has been a good experience.
It is a great school, and a great environment. You have access to everything you might possibly need. The bookstore is ran very nicely too. The staff is helpful, and they will make sure that you have every book you need, without buying something you don't. Also, there is always something g to do either on campus, or in the area. The school really does aim for success am deathly does this best to help everyone out.
Before I started at Westmoreland County Community College, I took a tour of the photography department. I was encouraged when I saw that the campus had labs full of dual Mac desktops, podcasting booths, and three studios. Hopeful and excited, I enrolled very early on in the photography program. However, I did not get to meet any professors on my tour of the college. To my surprise, I discovered that the head of the department was my professor for 3/4ths of my 60+ credit program. Currently, I am in my third semester, and most of the computers in our department have died on us. I have lost entire projects and have jeopardized losing close to 100,000 images on an external hard drive. Overall, the school only provided 1 to 2 camera bodies, which are not that great quality of cameras. Lenses aside from the standard kit lenses are not owned or provided. Most days have turned out to be in class work days, AKA teaching myself Googled techniques.
Although I am disappointed in the school I chose, the one positive thing that has come out of going to this college is that I've forced myself to find other ways to gain insight and knowledge. I have learned more outside of the classroom from photographers within my community than I ever thought was possible. I have learned to take every opportunity that comes my way. If there is anything to be grateful for, it is that!

I would definately choose to go to community college again to start out with. I feel you can really find yourself and figure out what you want to do with your life while being in the security of your hometown. I know if I would have left home right out of high school, I probably would have failed. Most of my friends had a difficult time adjusting to college life and I'm glad that I did not have to deal with that. Community college is a great way to save money and a good start to your college life.
They are friendly and helpful.
My school is inexpensive.
The best thing about my school is that the credits can transfer to pretty uch any institution in the area and the advisors help so much. When I transferred in from one semester at West Virginia University the transfer advisor helped me schedule all of my classes so that I would not get behind when I transferred to Point Park University at a later time. All of the professors are wonderful as well.
The school is excellent, provides a quality education, and is an ideal choice for any student who wants to succeed in life.
I wish I knew about it a lot sooner.
The worse thing about WCCC would be that it's a commuter campus. Fortunately I live close enough to the school that it doesn't cost much in gas, but for other students it's a hassle. Not only is it uneconomical but if you're looking to make life long friends in college, this college isn't ideal. Sure the teachers are great and you're classmates might be nice, but when you only see each other in class two or three times a week, becoming friends and maintaining that friendship is difficult.
If you're looking for a school where you hope to become friends with everyone in your class, this is not the place. When you see each other two or three times a week and only in certain classes, making and maintaining a friendship with someone is especially difficult. At WCCC there are no weekend dorm or apartment parties with your classmates. Essentially, the entire dorm room atmosphere is missing.
Westmoreland is just a pit-stop for me. I usually talk about Indiana University of Pennsylvania. This was the first school I attended before I was side tracked. The student body is great and you'll feel very in touch with the faculty. There are a number of great undergraduate programs to choose from, and if you're interested they even have a nationally ranked mens basketball team. Quality social and academic clubs are available to keep you occupied outside of the classroom. You'll feel very welcome and in touch with everyone you meet
