    We don't have dorms.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for students who don't want loans!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I was able to complete the majority of my classes at an off campus sight, saving me quite a bit of money on gas.

    What to do for fun

    I am currently part of the Phi Theta Kappa honors society.

    Food and Dining

    There is not a dining hall on campus. However, at certain meetings, free food is given.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at Wytheville Community College

    Tips for prospective students

    I encourage students to avoid taking online classes if at all possible. It is much more difficult to learn without in class discussion.

    In three sentences

    Wytheville Community College is a wonderful place to begin career studies. Attending this college has saved me quite a bit of money in loans for the same great quality education as I would receive from a four year school. I have learned so much attending this school and look forward to extending my education at a four year university.

    Campus Safety

    Since it is so small there are campus police at the college all the time. There have not been many incidents, so they just keep an eye on the campus to ensure safety.

    Clubs and Activities

    This college offers everything when it comes to clubs and activities, there are clubs here you can not find anywhere else! There are academic clubs, business clubs, and just for fun clubs.

    Great for these types of students

    Any one can get a great start here. They offer transfer programs, developmental courses, and many other curricular choices.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Since it is a small school they celebrate every holiday. There is always something going on if a holiday is near.

    Bang for the buck

    This is not a prestigious school, so you can get grants, loans and Financial aid to attend. It is also very cheap so if you have the money you could pay for it yourself.

    What to do for fun

    If you are into sports, clubs, and other activities this college will keep you busy. If not there are parks in town and a community center that you can visit and other attractions that can keep you occupied.

    Food and Dining

    There are a few places that are around the college that you can eat at, but none in the college. There is a Ruby Tuesday and an Applebeas in town. There are also cheaper places like Mcdonalds and Hardies.

    Dorm Life

    Wytheville does not have dorms, it is a two year college.

    Academic Rigor

    You do not have to be a genius to attend. They take grades seriously in classes though you can be dropped for not completing work or having a very low grade.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would recommend online classes for anyone planning to attend. This is a small college so there is a lot of help if you struggle with work. There are also many activities, clubs, and sports for those that are interested.

    In three sentences

    This is a great college to get started at. They offer a wide variety of classes for study. The scheduling is easy for people who have busy lives.

    Campus Safety

    Parking areas feel visible and safe

    Clubs and Activities

    Lots to do if you want to.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are self directed and are able to keep yourself motivated this place is for you. The help is there if you need it, but it's up to you to seek it out and use it.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Nice walking trail all around the campus and you get a discount at the swimming pool and rec center areas if you are a student

    Bang for the buck

    You get a degree and it's at your own pace with help for a great price!

    What to do for fun

    Lots of sports options if you're into that. They plan lots of fun days with free food and stuff.. mostly a transient school though

    Food and Dining

    Needs a snack bar area badly! Vending machines... not so good..

    Academic Rigor

    Depends on the program I suspect. A lot depends on the particular professor.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Use blackboard and be familiar with it BEFORE stuff is due in class. 2. Get to know your professors, the school is small enough to have a more personal relationship with professors 3. Be familiar with powerpoint and learn to take notes in class!

    In three sentences

    Nice flexible programs with teachers that care. Quality of education isn't as good as it could be due to what seems to be low-budget staffing issues. School needs to be able to change policy and procedure to accommodate changes from outside sources like Board Tests or National Requirements.
