Wilkes Community College is a hometown community college that has the atmosphere of a place of higher education, but one can also feel close to home and feel the strong ties that it has to the community of Wilkes. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first year at Wilkes because of this. Wilkes also believes in providing a quality education and that is why they have some of the best teachers in the world who make class and different subjects enjoyable and fun.

Wilkes Community College is good for students to get their basic courses out of the way to prepare for for a transfer to a four-year school. The instructors are both caring and well educated in their particular subject. Wilkes Community College is god college for those who are going back to school and those who need somewhere to start.
