I think this school is great. The campus is beautiful and obviously kept up with, and the new additions like the newer buildings really compliment the school. For a nature-lover like myself, this campus is the perfect place to see the changing colors of the leaves on trees, squirrels crossing your path and up in tree branches above and the beautiful Mt. Rainier off in the distance.
Tacoma Community College is an alright school to start out with. There are no living quarters on campus but from what I have heard and seen there are many apartments nearby and a bus station for students without a car. The food is decent but we have no cafeteria services so it is often snack food and usually unhealthy. Teachers are nice for the most part but some grade too harshly on their students expecting them to be on a higher level than they are. Especially in the math and science departments. If you want a basic degree or the opportunity to transfer your credits to a four-year college Tacoma Community College is a safe choice.
I enjoy going to school at TCC. It is environmentally friendly and the people are always helping each other out. My teachers have been very informative, patient, and supportive in our careers and education. I am staying for a third year and will be helping out other students with their studies by becoming a new tutor and I cannot wait!

Don't wait! Whatever you do, don't let the prospect of a paycheck get between you and furthering your education. If you dive into the workplace and "take some time" to figure out what you are going to do, you'll find it much harder to come back to school. Complete your education while you're still in the mindset of being a student, no matter how quickly you want to transition to becoming an independant adult. It can be a struggle sometimes, being a student. It is different from working a job. You don't get to clock on to work, clock off and not have to worry about your job til the next day. Being a student, commiting to it, requires your attention most of your waking hours, and even some of your unconscious hours. Stressful, yes, but it can also be very rewarding. Keep your eyes on the prize, look to the stars and remember that you can help to do great things for this world and the people on it.
When I tell my friends about Tacoma Community College, I always brag most about the quality of education this community college offers. The class sizes are small; usually 20 to 40 students, and both the teachers and advisors actually care about helping students achieve their academic goals.
Through no fault of Tacoma Community College, as this is the case with any school, the most frustrating aspect about attending school is the lack of availability of later classes as a full time corporate worker with a family and home. I don't want just any degree to pass on to my employer's checklist of preferred employee accomplishments. I want a degree that is fulfilling and challenging in ways that help me to grow as a person. Without more availablility, it is impossible for me to complete my degree without very drastic scheduling and financial changes.
The cost of tuition is horrendous. The only way to be able to afford it is through scholarships and grants. To take it one step further, those who are lucky enough to receive said scholarships and grants may only get enough to cover their tuition. Unfortunately, that means they may not have enough money to pay for the required textbooks or supplies for their individual classes.
I likek the smaller class sizes that Tacoma Community College offers. These allot each student the chance to ask specific questions of their professor(s) and be able to receive an individualized response which, in turn, ould benefit the class as a whole. Secondly, the students are able to be mroe productive if their professor(s) feel their students would benefit in any group work activity. Lastly, the professor(s) have less paperwork to analize and grade when teachign in a smaller classroom.
I've seen all sorts of people become very sucessful at TCC. If I had to narrow it down to two situations, I would first have to say that the Running Start program for high school students in their junior and senior years is a wonderful opportunity. To be able to get a high school diploma and an associate's degree at the same time is a great savings in money and time. I also think TCC is great for people returning to school after an absence. Every effort is made to ensure that the older student succeeds.
I wish someone would have recommended me to go to the tutor buildings as a study hall. Classes were a lot tougher than I expected.
I believe this school is a great school for anyone to start out at. The counselors are nice and want to help you graduate. The teachers are very helpful and actually care about their students. The teachers make an effort to connect with each and every one of their students. This school really helps prepare you for a four year university.
Tacoma Community College is a diverse school. It has many different programs and clubs, something for everyone, basically. The people are from around the world and provides great insight to other cultures as well as an inward reflection on yourself. It is a great place to grow and thrive; especially with the helpful staff.
My classmates give a wide perspective of varied educational and cultural backgrounds.
TCC is best known for its innovative programs designed to help those students returning to school, either after dropping out of high school, or those of us who are returning to college after years in the workforce or as homemakers. They also have many worker retraining programs, which have been very popular in the current economy.
Everyone that attend my college is friendly. There is always someone willing to help you when you need help. This college isn't to big or too small.
My favorite classes have been the chemistry classes as I have had very interesting instructors. I was a D student in chemistry back in high school and so far I have A's. Instructors always try to have students involved in class discussions and this helps all participate. Most classmates I have had have scored quite highly in the classes we have had together. I plan on joining the nursing major though I'm currently taking my prerequisites and so far I have enjoyed it. My school schedule also fits well with my personal schedule so I have enough time to do my own stuff. I try to ask as much as possible in class to avoid looking for instructors outside class hours.
Quite a number of clubs are popular like the engineering club, Black students organization. Currently I am not a member of any group. As far as dating goes, I would say students interact a lot. I met most of my friends during the new student orientation and the rest during class time. I would say students party when necessary and not very often. I do not drink so most of my Saturdays are non drinking days spent watching movies, assignments, reading, or just relaxing. Off campus I visit sited within the state lakes, museums, parks, etc
