I believe this school is one of the best community colleges in the nation. It provides an excellent variety of courses leading to many different majors and careers. The student/teacher relationships are very reassuring and you feel that they really want to help you, which is sometimes rare to find in college.
Forsyth Tech is a good transitional school, despite its small size. It has an excellent nursing school. The professors are very accessible. Not all professors speak excellent English, but this is not uncommon on any campus. The online aspect of classes since COVID hit has been very good and the school has been very well prepared.
The Interior Design program on the Forsyth Technical Community College campus became like a second home to me. All the instructors are like our mentors and always oversee that we put our best foot forward. Aside from the program, overall Forysth Tech is safe college and the students there are always involved in extracurricular activities or events that take place on campus and do a great job at promoting their activities to students that are unaware of the facilities that Forsyth Tech offers.
Forsyth Tech is a good place to get some gen ed classes out of the way at an affordable price, but there are many things to be desired. The parking lots are very over crowded and students are forced to park in a dirt lot near the woods, making it hard for some people to get to their classes on time. Another big issue is the entire application process. They require so many forms, but don't tell you what forms are missing until it is too late to submit them. The teachers are generally great and very accommodating, and will help you with anything. However, the dean and other higher ups couldn't care less about a students plight, making it very hard to get anything done because unless it brings in money for the school, or benefits them personally, they will do their best to not help. On the other hand, the advisers they have are some of the best, and can help you with anything. This school is not bad by any means, its a great way to get an associates or transfer credits, but there are some things that make it stressful for a student.

The best advice I could give myself as a high school senior would be to not let the stress of my senior year or the entire college transition process keep me from having fun. I remember letting the anxiety and stress of applying to college and numerous scholarships get to me, especially the further the process continued. There were many nights I stayed at home instead of hanging out with friends or going out because I was so worried about everything falling into place. It not only kept me from having fun, but I also chose to not get a job because I was too concerned I wouldn't be able to handle the stress of school, a job, and all that came with transitioning to college life. Many of my classmates struggled with the same issue; I know that being able to go back in time and give myself that advice would not only be beneficial to me, but many others as well.
It is a great community college. It is better than most around my hometown, that is why i drive 30 minutes away to get there. I could easily go to a college 15 minutes from my house but this school provides excellent learning experiences and helps assist me in anyway possible.
Forsyth Tech is best known for its multiple options available to students of all walks of life. The school has excellent technology and healthcare programs. They have state-of-the art nursing, dental assisting, racecar technology, welding and other programs. Also, it offers cheap, quality education for transfer students as well as a plethora of classes that are open to the community such as dancing classes, basketweaving, and languages for travelers. Forsyth Tech has something for everyone.
The worst thing about Forsyth Tech is the lack of programs and degrees for people with Liberal Arts degrees. Also, the advising often is not very helpful.
Anyone should attend !
Forsyth Tech is the perfect school for those who want to get a great start on their education and expand their knowledge on the career that they want to pursue in life!
The unique thing about this school is that it is a community college. So the tuition is much less than that of a university. Despite that there is not much different than other schools. Escpecially for me it all came down to price.
At my current college I had many favorite classes. I can say one of my favorites would be my biology class. The teacher was very knowledgeable and he made learning fun. I enjoyed the material taught as well. My least favorite class has to be chemistry 2 because the teacher did not show an interest to teach and share any information. I felt alone and hopeless throughout the course. At Forsyth Technical Community College class participation is very common. To be able to learn and process the new information correctly teachers will advise students to ask questions and even some do group projects or discussions to have the students involved.Most students are competitive at my current college. They do not seem as competitive as university students, but I can tell they do care about their education and learning outcomes of a course. My major is an Associate degree in science. This is a degree meant to transfer to a 4 year university to continue college to either obtain a bachelors, masters, or doctorate degree. I mostly take Math and Sciences along with a few Humanities and English courses. I usually do not spend a whole lot of time with professors outside of class unless I need help with the material, but most teachers there teach on my level of understanding so I do not need to stay after. Sometimes I do if I feel unsure about a problem or I have questions.
I meet most of my closest friends through classes throughout the semester and sometimes we will still take classes together. Some of us meet through group projects or just talk before class began. I think the whole party thing is less than people at a university level but people still do it. I just choose my friends wisely and try to get to know them before hanging out with them. On a Saturday night I usually work or study but if i can have fun I do not drink, i will go to the movies or shopping at the mall. When I am off campus I work 5 days a week and then I accomplish homework. I am going to volunteer at local animal shelters and organizations this summer.
I wish I had gone to FTCC and had set up a plan of action to make sure I had stayed on course and figure out a way to have paid for college.
A person who is not driven to do well in life should not go to Forsyth Tech. This is not the school for someone who is just wanting to waste time in their life, it is a great school to get a jump start on a career that someone is passionate about. This is not the school for someone who is not motivated to do well in life and doesn't want to accomplish anything more than a few credits. Forsyth Tech is for the brave, focused and driven!
I brag mostly on the informative classes and friendly environment. The instructors are professionals in their fields and are a viable source for a plethora of information. Both the instructors and students are friendly and willing to help/work with you.
Traffic , long lines and Over Crowding everytime a new semester start ....
