Three Rivers Community College is a safe place for people of all ages to go to and start their future for little to no price at all. The classes are small which allows students to have a better relationship with any of their professors and leads them to getting them the help they deserve.

Courtney - 03/25/2020

It would get a 5 star rating if professors answered their emails and were more helpful with online classes. Currently I have a professor who doesn't answer emails and its very frustrating being all online and not being able to contact anyone. Other teachers and advisers try to help when these situations get out of hand.

Hannah - 04/22/2019

In my opinion, the school is good, but it could be better if there were more types of clubs to join that were more artistic in nature. A choral group club, for example, would, in my opinion make this school more enjoyable. Also: there should be better vegetarian options at the cafeteria. the lettuce is not always good.

Sarabeth - 03/31/2019

I am so sorry this is the wrong school with the same name my bad. Please do not refer to this review as it invalid, I mistook the name for a different school.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back to my senior year of high school, assuming I know what I would know as a college freshman, I would have taken it more aggressively. I allowed myself to be manipulated into attending school in a location that was not my first pick. Given the choice 'if it does not work out, you can always transfer., but that is easier said then done. I attended school in Boston for a semester, but had Florida as a first choice. I am now back at home, because Boston did not work out. I am trying to get my priorities together so I can continue my major down in Florida, a location I know will make me happier. Though it will take time, it will be worth it. Saving money is a big thing for me to do right now so I can get to where I wish to be, to achieve my goal in a state of happiness.

  3. Describe the students at your school.

    Although I have not begun attending class, from the registration process I see my classmates as regular people. Teens right out of high school, not exactly sure where they want to go, or just do no have the money to do so. And even adults of any age returning to school to finish what they may or may not have started. It is a school open to any body that is willing to receive an education.

  4. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    I selected my school because at the time it was the only school where I lived that I know of that was offering a Photonics Engineering degree. This was in 2004 and the degree name has changed since then. I decided to return to the same college that I started. Not only because of the familiarity I had with it , but also because the campus and school itself have been completly renovated. With all the new equipmnet and teachers availble to me I am finding it easier to reaquaint myself with my field of study.

  8. What's unique about your campus?

    The best thing about Three Rivers Community College is that all of the Professors are very approchable. I've only had four professors so far however i enjoyed each class because they made it easy to understand and allowed themselves to be reached after class. If i needed extra help i was able to contact them very easily and they would be ready to help me at almost any time. It was extremely convienant for a student who was in his first semester in college.

  9. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about my school i would have to say is the parking lot and parking. There are certian areas designated to staff than others to students and you dont know which is which. If you park in staff you get a ticket stuck to your car window. Than parking lot construction is still going on a bit so spots are limited, otherwise you park way out in the back or off to the sides. Its also very twisted and turned so inconvenient.

  10. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    I brag to my friends about the fact that you get a quality education without paying the absurd amounts that most people pay. Since it is a two year college we do not have to pay room and board which saves us money since we live in apartments or at home. We do however pay certian fees that aren't near what other colleges charge.
