I never had a problem with our Student Body at our school. We are a school of diversity and everyone gets along because we are not a big school. I feel like our school is not the one to judge due to us students are the ones who are just going to get a degree and make someone out of our self. Everyone is accepted for who they are.

My academic experience is simply amazing. Our professor do an amazing job getting to every student and interacting with them. We seem to all build a great relationship with them and we are not afraid to ask something if we are unsure. They make sure that we are gaining knowledge every week and on the topic. Class registration runs smoothly and if it doesn't work for us our chair director makes sure that our schedule is very flexible and can work out. She knows we got a life outside of college such as work and family. She is very generous and does everything she can do to make our schedule workable.

What I really like about my major as a medical assistant it that we have outstanding professors that do an amazing job teaching. They know the knowledge about the topic and can explain well to the students. I personally enjoy getting the hands on experience doing injections, electrocardiograms, preparing tray, and so on. As well as being able to work with classmates and know that if we need to ask or we are not sure to make sure we know what we are doing so we don't put patient at risk. Also getting that opportunity to go out on internship and getting that experience before we graduate.

At Westwood College - Denver South our career center is very helpful to my fellow classmate and me. They set up career jobs events, mock interviews, and talk to us when we get closer to graduation. As well as making sure we keep our grades up and we are on track. At the end when we graduate they help us find a job within our degree. They are focused a lot on us students and making sure everything we done can have a positive income.

Convenience of School – Westwood is a career focused school Each term is 10 weeks which means there is a lot of homework and everything is crammed. Sometimes I do not have any time to do anything else but study, read, write papers/discussions, do research, etc. There are times where there is not enough time in a day to finish everything. Sometimes I will have 4 huge projects that are due in one week and I just found out about. It is a little frustrating, but I always manage to get it done.

Just starting but seems like there is a lot of resources for students along with a lot of help. So there is no excuse of why you couldn't do your homework.
College Senior 2013-07-17T18:45:53Z
They have student finance, career services, financial aid, etc.

I have had a wonderful academic experience. If I am struggling, the instructors are willing to work with me so I can catch up. If I need help I have their phone numbers and email addresses.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
It was so easy to get money to go back to school and I am able to make my own payment options.
College Senior 2013-07-17T18:42:19Z
There are so many resources that students can take advantage of. The staff is very willing to help you succeed and get into a career even before you graduate.

this school has any resoures you may need a library, tutors, counselors,academic advisors and staff are really friendly
College Senior 2013-07-11T04:41:53Z
this college is very helpful in many ways when I needed help paying for school they walked me through the process and even shared with me if after I graduate if I didn't find a job within six months they would send me up to 500 dollars to help towards bills until I get employed I thought that was great incentive. Then I needed a job and my counselor pulled some strings to start helping me to get work this school is awesome and so friendly

I feel like I am paying a lot to be in school and the requirement to make payments while I'm in school is also quite the hassle.

Mostly, my school consists of working-class people with full-time jobs or families. They often juggle many different roles in addition to being students. While they are happy to socialize and make friends, this is not a priority. They are getting an education so they can seek a different life or career.

Look at Tasks – You always need to look at the task tab before you start anything for that week because it will explain what is required. Some instructors will not lett you look ahead, though.

Intructors Care – Every instructor I have had cared about my education. If I needed help tey would find time to meet with me or communicate through email, text message, and/or calls.

Internet Slow – Sometimes the internet is really slow. It could also be the computers because they are outdated. They are from about 2003-2004. Some hardly work at all. The printer in the library is also very slow.
College Senior 2012-09-10T18:24:20Z
Finding Time – Most of the students are cramming in school to their already busy schedule. Some do not have as much time as others to do all of the schoolwork that is required, but most work very hard to maintain good grades.

My Experience at Westwood – My experience at Westwood College so far has been fantastic. All of my instructors are extremely helpful and they have worked with me in order to succeed. Last term I was having a difficult time on a paper that I was writing because I am horrible at developing a thesis statement. I decided to email my teacher to ask for some assistance. She responded to my email within an hour with examples of thesis statements I could use. She was such a great help and with that email I was confident about finishing my paper and doing well on it. When my paper was returned to me, I got 100%! She told me I was the only one in all three of her classes to get a perfect grade and asked if she could use my paper as an example to her future classes! I was so excited and I accepted her request. That has never happened to me before and I don't think it would have happened at any other school. I love Westwood. I will finish my degree program of Criminal Justice in 2013 and plan on returning to obtain a degree in either Information Security or Computer Science.

Don't Know – I haven't yet taken courses with online components

I've had a good experience here, although it has been short. I have access to career services to help me keep employed while I'm going and they'll help me get a job in my field when I'm done. You can't ask for much more than that.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
