    Wake Tech is a safe haven for the those who look to save money for a quality education. Wake Tech offers a variety of classes that easily transfer to a four year college. The professor's I've had were well skilled in their fields which is a big factor in success.

    Great inexpensive way to further your education or get you started. Requires a lot of self-motivation to be an adult rather than a college student. Definitely a great option if you're not ready to enter a university, because it will over-prepare you.

    College life for the unenthusiastic begins here at Wake Tech. The current student population is made up of people stuck in a place because of finances, grades, or self pity. Wake Tech is beautiful still with smiling faces of professors making an impact on students while getting paid....not nearly enough!

    Instructors are really good but the college claims they're having problems hiring instructors for evening courses. I'm enrolled in the pre-nursing program and have just 2 courses to go. One course in particular (Anatomy and Physiology II) has 3 offerings in the evening, but the lab is during the day -- what's the point!? And unfortunately, last semester this course was not offered at all during the evening. Wake Tech also changed the way students are allowed to register. It used to be first come first serve, but now, the more credits you have, the earlier you can register. So those just starting out at the college run the risk of not getting into the courses they need. That's what happened with the Microbiology course I needed. Just one course was offered on a Saturday, but there were students that had priority so the course was full even before it was open to students without that priority status. NC voters in 2012 approved a $200 Million bond for the college to expand and make repairs. Don't know why a college would spend money to expand when their halls are empty during the evening. I wish they would first offer more courses instead of expanding. I'm hoping most of my courses will transfer to another school. I really didn't want to attend a trade school, but it looks like that's what I may need to do.

    I find after attending wake technical community college for over a year now that it was better for me to attend a four year university. I do not like how lazy financial aid employees are. Wake technical community college is not worth the stress and money lost.

    Wake Tech is great if you're not ready for the four-year school lifestyle. Wake Tech is great if you prosper with smaller class sizes and need a personal connection with your teacher. If you succeed at Wake Tech you should succeed at a four-year school.

    Wake Technical Community College has thousands of students, yet each individual is included in the classroom setting, most teachers know their students by their first names. Wake Tech has horrible parking. Wake Tech gives students a good education for the price.
