I'm a graduate. I've heard of employer's laughing at some of WKCTC made up certificates and fake degrees. Career placement was a joke. Most classes that I took were too easy, most teachers knew less about the subjects than you could read about on wikipedia. I think the classes/programs are easy so that the WKCTC pass/graduation numbers look good so they can get awards like "Top 5 in the Nation". Most students were slow and should have been cut from the program I took. There are a handful of fantastic teachers out there but they are dwindling.

They let anybody attend whether you can read, spell, are a felon, or should be committed to an insane asylum. It's all about numbers and not about a quality education in any way. From my experience the staff are a bunch of lazy people who couldn't work anywhere else. The students barely factor into their day to day job. I've heard that the administration is comprised of a group of ex-nursing instructors who have no education or background in the field (department) they are over. They all make butt loads of money while most people at the college make shit.

It's good as a transfer college if you want to take the cheap/easy/local route and then go on to a 4 year. That's my opinion.

So Tina are you saying you couldn't pass the open book tests at Daymar? Reading your posts makes me think WKCTC is a joke also.

You do understand that it is a community college, right? It's a very good school for that level. Don't judge all the students by Tina. She lasted a few weeks in the algebra class we shared...

why do you think that slow people or convicted felons don't have the right to further their education? Everyone had that right and I for one commend them for that. Seems to me you had a bad experience with someone from the school and you are trying to find anything and everything you can to complain about.

When i went there it was laughingly called 13th grade because it was easy and grab ass. It shouldnt have been in the top 500. Wkctc being in the top 5 doesnt speak highly of the state of our community college system.

I bet they won for the nicest new building and the lawn. I bet it is earthquake resistant. To meet the codes and ordinances around here you have to spend a bundle and use approved electrical contractors.
It looks really nice. If the contest was for turning out the most qualified technical graduates they might not have done so well.
If there were technical jobs in western kentucky the college would attract more students.
This is more of a hotel, restaurant, real estate community. If they let the technical industry in here

Veazy is a joke. Dr. Veazy got her degree from a cereal box (more like paid for it). Then walks around like she is important. Her sidekicks are just as bad. Bully and fake.

Wkctc is definitely In the top five. They are a great community college and we are lucky to have it in this area. It us great knowing we can get a good education right here at home! All the programs they offer are VERY LEGIT and all their health care programs are just as good as any university. All the el tv students rake the exact same state boards as a university student duma$$! If they were not teaching difficult college courses students would not br passing these country wide boards.
Everyone needs to get real and get an education and stop
Worrying about criticizing the ones that have and are more educated than you!

I'm pretty sure the original poster didn't attend this school. There's nothing easy about the classes. I'm sure you got failed out, or was one of the little texters and got thrown out of class.

I'm assuming that you didn't do very well in English Composition. Unless they let APA format go out the window and are now accepting assignments in "ghetto txt-slang". You've got that covered. I'm so damn proud!

Yeah. So if you think the classes at WKCTC are hard, I hope it is the last school you attend. You are doomed if you go to a real university.
