Wilkes Community College

I attended WCC from the fall of 2005 through the summer of 2009. Thanks to the professor to student ratios at WCC, I was able to develop a personal relationship with professors and students. As an Applied Science student, I interacted in many group activities and by the relationships we built it was easier for us to complete and learn our assignments successfully together.
