Have you ever wonder what would it be like if there was more school spirit in AWC? Do you ever consider engaging in school events such as football games or homecoming?

Here I have listed why students should be involved with their school’s activities and events. And what we could improve to increase our school spirit.

International Program-

We all agree that the International program is a great thing for this college. Our group has experienced the difficulties in moving from country to country and how tedious it is.

This is the front view of the Cafeteria
This is the front view of the Cafeteria

Being hungry is no joking matter, as a college student most of us have a very tight budget. Between tuition, overpriced books and the cost of transportation we are left with a very limited income and a harsh question, where to eat? AWC cafeteria “tries” to meet the needs of students and faculty. There are different opinions to the efficiency and cost of a meal plan. The truth is that like any other public service AWC cafeteria has its supporters and those that are against it. Pros and cons are always easy to find at any establishment that is built to accommodate diverse types of people. It might be safe to say that when the cafeteria addresses many of the needs of the average student there are still several things that could be improved to best serve our pockets. The truth is that no matter how much the system changes there will always be nonconformist, and as a student I can’t blame them. Who wouldn’t want to get the most for their hard earned money? So my biggest question would be why should I eat at the AWC cafeteria? Continue reading “Lunch Time”

What Has 1 Arm, 1 Leg and No Money?

            Just about all of us, as college students in this day and age, have trouble handling all the finances involved with college. I think we can all agree that it is hard to get through college without financial help from relatives, especially when we’re buying $200 books that we’ll only use for one semester and often not at all. Fortunately for us, we have the financial aid office, and now we don’t all have to spend an arm and a leg to put more weight in our school bags. Continue reading “Financial Aid at AWC”
