"The school forced a major on to me that I did not want. Originally, I wanted a game design major but was enrolled in computer science instead with a game-oriented focus. They informed me that I was the last student they would enroll. They did not tell me they were going to close until it was too late to un-enroll. The school told me they would at least finish my degree, but then went back on their promise. My credits did not transfer and I had to enroll in community college. I found out I had to start from the beginning in more ways than when I had trouble with beginner level courses at community college. My education was a complete scam and waste of my time."

"In the IT program the director and all of the instructor's were excellent very much knowledgeable and accommodating to all their student's needs in and outside the classroom, They were able to go step by step to make sure i understood the material I was learning. I only problem i had was with the finance department of the school, most student's don't know that transferring school to school eats up your finical aid . I only every been to two colleges in my life and now I am left with no funding no loans and in debt up to me ears. I wasn't told that or made sure that i understood that when going through the application process of getting into WESTWOOD COLLEGE. I really wish i knew because I would have made better choices when it comes to which college institute to choose. Other than that,I do wish that the class went in consistent order, the materiel will stay fresh in your mind when it comes to learning command line, MySQL and Linux operating system functions."

"I had a great experience during my three years at Westwood College. School staff were very professional whenever I needed any help. I had many professional professors that had that passion and drive when they would teach. The professors took their time to get to know their students and provide support. Westwood professors also provided students with valuable education in which in the long run would benefit everyone. I currently work in two fields Social Services/Criminal Justice as a Counselor for high risk youth. I love my career! Thanks Westwood!"

"I liked the high standards the program sets for accuracy and ability to do the actual coding, interpreting original records, interacting with agencies and so on. It is something that is going to require continued learning while I am working, so you have to start out right. Also, this is an occupation with very little room for error so it is only realistic to expect the same of us in school. I didn't like the cold manner of the instructors. Most of them did not seem to enjoy teaching, so it was hard to have a rapport with any of them. In the end, it didn't affect my learning but it would have been more pleasant if they had had a more positive attitude. I definitely was prepared- the had high expectations of us from day one, so I had the right mindset on my first day at work. Also used to quick pace, so I manage my time very well."

"I loved that the campus was so convenient to many other places- train and bus stations, restaurants, and shopping. The classes were challenging and student life was great. I didn't like that some of my classes were not offered at convenient times. I was prepared for my career and got a job about one month after graduating."
