My Experience at Western Tech

I chose to come to Western Technical College and be in the Marketing program here because I knew that I could get my associates in 2 years while getting the full college experience. I heard about Western from a friend back home. She said she was coming here and showed me some pictures of the college and the dorms here. I thought it looked really interesting so I made an appointment to come take a visit. I fell in love with the campus. After being here for over a year, I absolutely love it. It has fulfilled my expectations and more. One thing I really like about Western is the class size. I like how there is a maximum of students is approximately 25 students. I came from a high school with that size of classrooms, so it’s nice to still be in my comfort zone a little. The instructors are also amazing.  They truly want all of their students to succeed and will help them any way they can. The library is a great resource, I go there all the time and do my homework. They have multiple people there to help you use those resources as well. I have taken multiple classes that have taught me so many things I know I will use in my future.

Classes I have taken:

  • Beginning Composition
  • Software Apps for Business
  • Economics
  • Fundamentals of Graphic Design
  • Written Communication
  • Intro to Psychology
  • Oral/ Interpersonal Communication
  • Math with Business apps
  • Intro to sociology
  • Selling Principles
  • Marketing Principles
  • Orientation to Marketing
  • Marketing Research
  • Promotion Principles
  • Marketing Financials
  • Marketing Communications
  • Project Management
  • Product Management

like my classes, I realized I don’t want to go into direct sales in marketing. So it was nice I learned that early on. I’ve also realized that Kwik Trip is a big deal in Marketing and I didn’t know that before. I have a short term goal for this semester and it is to get good grades in all of my classes. I will work hard to study and turn in all of my homework on time. For my future, I’m still figuring everything out. I know I want a job somewhere in Sports Marketing, possibly get a management position. I will graduate in the spring of 2018 and begin searching for a career. Here is one of my favorite quotes that will get me through my hard times in college and life in general as I strive to achieve my goals…
