    Campus Safety

    On the campus you have police driving around to make sure everything goes smoothly on an everyday basis. If by any chance you feel threatened, or unsafe you can contact the security by calling them. Most students are required to have their student id with them at all times to show that you are a Wallace student for the college safety as well.

    Greek Life

    Wallace does not have any sororities at the time. Greek life is not available. Maybe in the future they will develop some!

    Clubs and Activities

    Wallace have a variety of clubs for students to participate in. From work study to SGA students have the opportunity to choose to get involved with organizations that they have to offer. The more you get involved the more you will have to accomplish.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who are looking for to come back to school after a long time should come to wallace. Wallace is open to all students who are looking to go back to school. The classroom sizes are just right for anybody!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Every spring and fall Wallace has a welcome back for students returning back to school for the school year. Wallace doesn't have any traditions that they do. Currently they are trying to offer more extracurricular activities.

    Bang for the buck

    College tuition is not too pricey, but for a person who does not receive no type of funds or pell grant saving ahead would not be such a bad idea! Taking out student loans is good for some students as well. The cost depends on what classes and credit hours you are taking.

    What to do for fun

    For new, returning, and upcoming students wallace offer in the spring time a Spring Fling. This is the time where students can come out enjoy fun activities and food. They also have a Fall Mixer to introduce students to the college better. To get more involved with school acitivites try out for homecoming king, or queen!

    Food and Dining

    Wallace offer a variety of soul food for students ,and faculty as well as the community to eat. They currently just built a new student services building that offers more food choices. Along with the many snack machines they offer students have the bookstore to rely on for a quick snack if they don't have time to eat a full meal.

    Dorm Life

    The fact that this is a community college they do not have dorms! Some community colleges do, but Wallace does not offer any. Most students who come here for classes travel at least 45 minutes to an hour. The most would be an hour and a half to two.

    Academic Rigor

    Wallace academics are simple and easy to choose from. Wallace is a school with a more Technical hands-on Program where you can get trained in being a nurse or electrician for no more than two years, and have a degree. With a great start you can continue to grow, and get an even advanced degree from a four year college.

    Tips for prospective students

    To succeed in being a prospective student be on time for classes. If you decide to take online classes make sure you are responsible, and manage your time well. Know your degree plan, and what it will require of you and the classes you have to take.

    In three sentences

    George C. Wallace is a great community college to go and receive your Associate of Arts and Science degree. It is a start for a lot of seniors coming out of high school and experiencing college for the very first time. Wallace gives you a real experience of responsibility of what to expect before transferring to another college.

    Campus Safety

    Campus police is always on duty. You'll always see them riding around campus and walking through each of the buildings.

    Great for these types of students

    It is great for all types of students. I feel that anyone would feel welcome and comfortable in this great learning environment.

    What to do for fun

    In between classes many of the students chill out in the newly built student center. There you can play pool, cards, or just laugh and talk with the students on campus. Each year they have a Spring Bling, which is a lot of fun with great bbq, music, and games!

    Food and Dining

    There are two places on campus the serves delicious food. The cafeteria serves great soul food and other choices of food each day. They offer both breakfast and lunch. The second place that serves food is our new student center. There you have a more variety of food. I recommend both the cafeteria and student center; they're both great places to eat.

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately, WCCS does not have dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics at WCCS are not difficult but they allow you think more outside of the box. The classroom settings are very comfortable and over-crowded, so 9 times out of 10 your instructor will remember your name. The instructors are always willing to explain the lectures after class or during scheduled appointments.

    Tips for prospective students

    There are different activities that are offered during the Fall and Spring semesters. It's best to have a broad mind while attending WCCS. Get to know other students on the campus. They also provide different resources with assisting in assignments, use them; they are VERY helpful.

    In three sentences

    WCCS is a great community college. The atmosphere of the campus and staff is very welcoming and exciting. They have a lot to offer to be a community college.
