    What to do for fun

    Honestly, there is not too much to do here in Defuniak Springs. Our school does take part in a few community wide events.

    Food and Dining

    Since WCDC is conjoined with the high school in town they do provide you lunch for $3.10 a day if you wish. Depending on the day you can either get a enormous chef salad with tea or whatever dish they are preparing that day. The good thing is all around the school are restaurants.

    Dorm Life

    Here at WCDC there is no dorms. Those who attend drive from their homes each day.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic load is very intense but excellent for preparing you for the field of nursing. You have in class assignments, homework assignments, care plans and ati to try and juggle but it is possible.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are going into the nursing program at WCDC the ATI test you do are extremely important, don't take them lightly. The best way to succeed is to try your hardest. Any of the teachers will help you but only if you are willing to help yourself.

    WCDC is an excellent school for any program you may desire. While attending you will be involved in daily lectures and hands on learning activities. Any of the employees are glad to discuss any questions that may come up before or during your time there.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is good for students that want to better them selves and work hard in school. Its not impossible but it takes time and determination. Studying is the key thing.

    Food and Dining

    This school gives the students access to refrigerators and microwaves. As well as during normal school hours they have school lunches that are available for the program students to buy. With picnic tables to eat out side if you chose or a cafeteria like building were u can sit and eat.

    Dorm Life

    This school is not a true college is actually at a high school campus. Which we use to do our labs and our class education. So there are no dorms for this school.

    Academic Rigor

    A typical day of course work is workbook assignments and tests daily or weekly depending on the topic on hand. But they program expects the students to maintain a 77 average to continue the program and cant miss hours or you may be kicked out of program.

    Tips for prospective students

    Well I just got excepted in to the program but iv learned that studying is key to success. And if you ask for help the teachers are very nice and willing to help.
