    There must be some truth to these accusations. So far they have dropped 5 students from my class, and they were all black students. The class started off with equal amount of whites and black students. A word of advice to those black students who wants to complete this program successfully, “walk circumspect, be vigilante, study hard and be prayerful” because their aim is to wear you out, make you tired so you feel like giving up. You know within yourself that you must always be outstanding and even when you are, you will still be faced with rejection and oppression. With God in our hearts we must persevere. Here is a word of encouragement, “ “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” ??John? ?16:33? ?KJV?? http://bible.com/1/jhn.16.33.kjv

    Nursing program in this school is horrible, terrible. Favoritism is going on in this school. They are hired the black teachers to do their dirty work for them by failing the black students and top it off points to the white ones to move up to the next semester. Straight racism in this school.No encouragement, no support from the teachers. They don't want the black folks to make it.stay away from that school.I would not recommend the nursing program in this school to any of my friends, anybody. worst school ever. please stay away.

    This is an Ok school when you are taking pre-reqs, but not for the nursing program.The instructors for the pre-reqs are great, patience.However, the nursing Instructors are not.They are mean, they are not patience at all.they dont teach only read powerpoints,then you are on your own.The black instructors are worst,itd like they dont want you to be a nurse,they are 2faces.and they are more on the white folks.I heard they are top it off points only for the white folks to move on,but if a black one needs a point,they would say no.There was this African american Nursing instructor name Renee Hightower.She was the worst one,she hated Blacks people,she always found a way to dimissed the black ones to the program,they had to let her go because the students filed a suit against her.thats how bad she was.Now my cousin tell me,they replaced hightower with another African american name Sheila Mayfield.I heard she failed a lot of students this semester due to bad surveys.I heard she's cruel and wicked.And again a lit of students are working to sue her black Ass.The students should file a complaint with the state against discrimination,racism.They need to shut down this nursing school program at this school because of racism,and what's worst they hired the blacks to do their duty works for them.They are giving or round up points away to the white folks.Not cool at all.The black folks need to open their eyes and stand up together to fight this B.S in this school.I will pray for you guys.or call abc channel explained to them whats going,they will be glad to take the case, and put them out there.I know that because my brother is a reporter there.#Justicefortheblackfolks#

    The nursing program at this school is a corrupt system. The teachers are unfair and push thru the white students, but strategically get rid of the black students. This school operates with a spirit of racism. If you are black please stay away from this school because you will only face oppression and depression especially when you see what truly goes on there. Please take notice of their walls of posters with their yearly nursing graduates you will find 25 or more whites and only a few black. Now that I’m in the program I see why and how they do it. Coming from the top there is someone who is pushing this agenda against blacks. This school is not equal for all. Blacks need to come together and fight this racist agenda with a lawyer. Very bad school.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who are parents, have obligations to health or work, and those who are wanting to save money before going into a degree program are all able to utilize this college to the utmost degree.

    Bang for the buck

    The reason I attend this school is because of how affordable it is! Tuition is about one hundred for a class, textbooks can be rented or bought cheaper than found online, and you do not have to pay for parking.

    What to do for fun

    The various school campuses offer games, student days, and student government activities.

    Food and Dining

    Also unable to answer adequately.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in the dorms so I am unable to answer this question adequately.

    Academic Rigor

    Instructors are both effective and easy to understand. The coursework is not too heavy but just enough for a student to actively absorb the information and make use of it.

    Tips for prospective students

    The harder courses are best taken in person rather than online. Also, look for a campus located near you, with classes scheduled for day and evening, your class schedule can be worked around any current responsibilities.

    In three sentences

    West Georgia Technical College is an affordable school that offers core classes as well as career programs. I enjoy the ease of access both on campus and online. The school has given me an opportunity to effectively gain my degree while still working part-time.

    Tips for prospective students

    you must stay on top of the employees here. they truly do not care about you or your future in the world. i am only attending this college, because it's the only one that offers radiology. every other school that offers it is over an hour away. i strongly dislike this college and the staff at the carrollton campus are very rude and careless. not once, but twice the financial aid office lost my tax transcript. they lost a piece of paper that has my full name, address, dob, and my social security number on it. and they did not care one bit.

    They could definitely have healthier and more variety of choices in the vending machine.

    Dorm Life

    I rated it 3 stars/average because I am at a campus without the option of living on campus so I wouldn't have knowledge of dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses are excellent, there aren't any extra filler courses that you don't need. You can get the degree,certificate, or diploma in a very fast, timely manner with no hassle.

    WGTC has many campuses south of Atlanta, and is building a really nice one in Newnan, Ga, that will be up and running in 2013. I can't wait.

    What to do for fun

    WGTC is very good about extracurricular activities for students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to get all information needed before making any decisions, whether it be about tuition, classes, or majors. It is important that you take control of your education.

    West Ga Tech, is a really good school. I give them 4 out of 5 stars. They could add a little more variety in some of the courses they offer.

    Great for these types of students

    Adults going back to school, adults with children, young adults, young adults with children

    Bang for the buck

    Like I stated before, it is $75 a credit and is an accredited college.

    What to do for fun

    For fun there are random activities like bands that play, artist that draw the students, and raffles at times. Many other events happen but I haven't a clue at the moment.

    Food and Dining

    There is no dining area for students on my campus (Coweta) so that's why I gave it a one. Vending machines are not sufficient meals.

    Dorm Life

    I'm not exactly sure what dorm life is like because I live off campus. I think that dorm life would be about a three because no dorm is spacious and I like space.

    Academic Rigor

    Four stars because the school is inexpensive, caring, and benefits the students in means of time.

    Tips for prospective students

    The only tip I can tell you is to not take online courses if you procrastinate and don't plan well.

    In three sentences

    The college is a clean and kind environment. I like that all the teachers are comfortable about going around a students busy schedule especially if they have children. Education comes at the low price of $75 dollars a credit.

    This school is very unorganized, the Douglasville campus specifically. The main campus (Murphy) is a little more organized, but it still leaves much to be desired. I have not had any bad experiences, but I've had some rather confusing ones.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus although somewhat new is not very well kept up. The resources for the students are helpful but not quite up to par with other educational institutions I've visited.

    Am learning a lot

    This school while having a long list of core subject classes does not have what you might call a rigorous educational standard. I am learning many life skills however in my courses and communication and relational skills. This school had definitely helped my potential for reaching my degree

    Students who are sure of what they'd like to do and are ready to enter that field. Also students like me who are trying to get some of their core classes done before going to a 4 year school.

    Bang for the buck

    My financial aid has covered all of my tuition and fees. The school is definitely not expensive at all. I had to pay for one quarter out of pocket due to my own issues with my financial aid but it didn't break me. You definitely get more than you pay for in my opinion.

    Am enjoying being here

    This school is very convenient for me. It's close to home and my job. A lot of my friends from high school are there too and people I know from the area.

    Am learning a lot

    My classes are not very large and the teachers can focus on individual needs. All of the teachers I've had so far have been incredible and very helpful. You learn a lot more than just subject matter here. There are so many different types of students to talk to and learn with. You pretty much learn from everyone you're around.
