CWI's instructors work one on one with the students, no matter the class size (though they are normally small). This school gives undergraduates the opportunity to work hands-on with the work they will be performing once they graduate with a much more affordable tuition price. This college is a two-year college, so there are no dorms. However, if they did, I can only imagine how great it would be.

I like that it’s smaller than a university and more affordable.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

They have campuses all over the canyon-Ada counties and some classes are only available at certain buildings.

It is a very welcoming environment for a non-traditional student like me.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only thing I can think of is I wish my classes were available on Ada campus.



It is easy to apply and the employees are very nice.
