I enjoy attending WCJC, It’s close to home, and I’m able to take online classes, and I still have time to work and have fun time with my kid and fiancé.
this is my first year at wharton county junior college. i believe there could be better learning for students but due to covid-19 it can be hard. online/Virtual learning is hard for a lot of students including me. Overall i believe the school is trying their best to help students adapt to this different type of learning.
So far, my experience at the Wharton County Junior College (At Sugarland, Tx) has been great! I admire the modern architecture and infrastructure of the buildings (I happen to be very picky for this type of thing), the clean atmosphere, and the friendly staff. However, there are a few reasons why this review isn't five stars. For one, the parking situation at the campus stinks (I happen to park in the gravel daily :( ). There is a lack of food options at the campus (Though Chick-fil-a will randomly appear with their stand, however, they are overpriced (compared to the regular chain) and inconsiderate due to us being broke college students). And, the campus is in desperate need of another building (it is PACKED- not a good thing when you're claustrophobic like I am). Even though these three things must be taken into consideration when coming to the Sugarland branch of Wharton, the reason why I am giving this institution four-stars is because of the quality of the professors. So far, I've had a total of eight professors and out of the eight, I would say two were pathetic. I can tell that the professors care about their jobs (except for the two I've had- whom I will not name), and that the value of education is high. In addition to the professors, I love how the campus looks overall. I do recommend coming to this campus, because even though I haven't seen the other campuses, I believe this is the best one (and the newest).
Wharton County Junior College in Sugarland, Texas is a very nice facility. Amazing professors and awesome places to sit and chill. Parking is a little bit difficult but for the most part all the professors and really decent and it is a excellent learning environment.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Wharton County Junior College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would go back and tell myself that although this first year at a community college is going to be extremely easy you still need to put forth major effort to build good habits for the university life. I would have told myself that I need to try my hardest to soak up every little bit of information so that I can apply it tenfold upon transferring to a bigger school the year after.
I wish that I would have known more about the numerous oppertunities Wharton County Junior College gives each of its students without having anything to do with race, religion, or geneder because this university treats all students with respect and equality.
My classmates are very attentive in class one can tell that each student wants to be there.
The Wharton County Junior College of Sugarland is a college that is advantageously located with the University of Houston system. This makes it easy for students to attend a two-year college and pocket their abundant amounts of savings before transferring credits to the university.
The best thing that I consider about my school is that they help students achieve their Dreams. They are number one school to help community college students succeed (earn degrees, earn certificates or transfer to other institutions to continue their studies). They are particularly concerned about student success, and have faced the most significant barriers to success, including low-income students and students of color. My school also participate in college research at community colleges; public policy work; and outreach to communities, businesses and the public. My school initiative also includes advocating public policies such as policies to improve states.
Anyone can attend this school. This school offers a variety of great professors who cares and puts forth time and effort to make you feel welcomed.
Parking becomes very difficult during the 9AM classes.
Wharton County Junior College is not a university, but more like a threshold where a student can begin the many steps needed to find or pursue a degree to obtain the ultimate goal of a career and it is also like a home where you are welcomed with open arms and given helpful advice from people who want you to succeed in life.
I would WCJC is best known for being a college that can help you maintain a good enough GPA in order to transfer to a good university. They have several programs and the one I'm very aware of is their nursing program.
My favorite class is my U.S History class, my professor is so interesting and easily relatable to students. I always leave class wanting to hear more. Students are interested and enjoy participating in class lectures. I am majoring in AA Business degree and plan on getting my bachelors degree.
I am new to the school, so I haven't joined any clubs yet, but I have seen a wide variety from athletics to drama. Most students are single so you mainly see large groups of friends. Students who attend wharton aren't here to party, many have to work and attend classes.I work 30 hours a week when I am not in class. Most weekends I stay busy at my job and studying for my classes.
I'm not sure about stereotypes. Maybe just lazy, good-for-nothings? Obviously not true at all, students may not be the most enthusiastic, but I believe it's just the overall setting that sets the mood.
It's facilities are older and not updated.
The kind of persons that shouldn't attend this school are the lazy student whom are not ready to work hard. For example, those student that does not sow but they want to reap where they did not sow. Any student that is immune to plagiarizing, cheating, lying or making statements misrepresenting the truth or that is a subject to severe disciplinary action. person which may have been in dismissal from the previous schools. Any student exhibiting behavior, which suggests impaired judgment for any reason. Student or individuals who has impairment related to drugs (including prescription medications) and/or alcohol.
Wharton County Junior College has a great team of professors and staff members. Everyone is so helpful during the registration process. All my professors have been helpful and interested in their subjects they teach. My only complaint is there is not enough student parking.
It is much cheaper going to a junior college for your first two years than a four year university.
