I believe TCC has prepared first time college students for Universities. Going to a community college first has saved me thousands of dollars. I was able to receive an Associates degree in Science and also my pharmacy technician license without having to receive school loans!!
Community college is a great option for high school seniors and just about anyone who wants to earn a degree. Compared to public and private universities, community college is a lot more affordable. Some great things about Tidewater Community College are the campus security, class size, professors, commute, and flexibility. TCC has blue light emergency stands located in multiple places on campus. These are great for lighting in the dark and if a student needs help, there is a button that alerts campus security. I personally prefer smaller class sizes because it allows for more class involvement and better relationships with classmates and professors. I have loved all of my professors at TCC. Most professors use office hours to meet with students, but I have found that coming to class early or staying after is a great way to discuss concerns with your professor. I have had great interactions with all of my professors in person and through email. Hampton Roads has four TCC campuses, so no matter where you are located in Hampton Roads, the commute to fairly easy. TCC offers both online and in-person classes for almost all courses, so if you have a busy schedule and can't be in person, you can still earn your degree completely online.
I think the college is ok if you want to get your degree quick and easy. But if you want professors and counselors to be hands on with your learning it definitely isn’t the best. The counselors will try to make you give up what you’re passionate about because they don’t believe in you. I would recommend rate my professor before signing up for classes.
I think a tidewater community college is a great place for students to start before they transfer to a four-year university that way they can get a feel of what college will be like academically. The professors are nice and can be very helpful, I do wish I would've started with four years because I wanted the whole college experience. This university will save you at least half of the money you'll pay at four-year colleges. I highly recommend enrolling here.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Tidewater Community College is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I am so glad to go to college to get my education because that's the teaching from the prophet of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints. Now I realize how important to study for I can make my country and family better. The reasons why I mention about this situation are 1. The knowledge at the college is deeper and wider than in a high school, and it can explore your mind and thought. 2. The way you pursue the knowledge from the books and the professors will make your attitude and sight different so whatever you will do in the future will be more sufficient and more successful. 3. The relationship with everyone surrounded you will be closer because you guys are pursuing your dreams together. 4. You will get more chances to have a good job. I am happy to have a chance to get a higher education in my life and I know it will make YOUR life more vivid.
The most challenging issue facing students at Tidewater Community College is parking. I have taken classes at each of the four campuses. The Norfolk campus is based out of a heavy populated downtown area. Students are charged a flat $25 fee per semester in order to park in designed garages. The biggest problem is the distance of the garages to the instructional area. The Virginia Beach campus has an insufficient amount of parking spaces to accommodate students. The Chesapeake and Portsmouth campuses are currently under construction. The supplies needed by workers decrease the amount of spaces available to students.
Tcc is an a great school with quality learning for an affordable price, this school has my major and is very close to my home.
If I had to choose one type of person that should not attend Tidewater Community College, it would be someone who is not dedicated to working hard in an attempt to further his or her personal life and become an upstanding citizen of the United States of America. I do believe, however, that everyone deserves a chance to broaden his or her educational oppurtunities, and Tidewater Community College provides people with that oppurtunity.
I have not found nothing that is frustrating about TCC.
The flexibility of classes and the times at which they are provided are really convinient for me as an older student.
I would consider the flexible class schedule to be the best thing about TCC. There are many different options to the way the class is conducted.
I wish I would have went to this school before going to a four year university. The tuition is cheaper and I feel that I learned more at this school than at the four year instuition.
Tidewater Community College (TCC) is well known for being a good start to college. It allows students to stay near home and attend for much cheaper tution then other state schools. The classes sizes are modest and the schedules are flexible, allowing students to work while in school to support themselves. All in all, TCC is the school for students who cannot afford a larger school and need to work to substain themselves while attending college.
Any kind of person should attend this school, but I specificially think it is very helpful for people that might be nervous to attend a large university first, so they can start at Tidewater Community first and work their way up.
The only thing I really brag about it the money I am saving to go to this school. Also how easily I can talkt o my teachers about homework or anything else I need to know.
TCC has three different campuses and the one that I attend is home to the mathematics and scientific sides of the college. In VA Beach (approx 20 mins away) most of the language classes are held there and the Chesapeake campus (15-17 mins away) houses theater, film and art classes.
The Phi Beta Kappa and the SAAB (Student African-American Brotherhood). Activity wise it's humpday dodgeball and the freshmart which is a bi-monthly farmers market that comes to campus.
I think that it's lovely! I have the opportunity to get all of my General Education requirements completed before transferring (to Hollins). Another plus is the fact that I am close to my family and near my campus there are a ton of cool things to do.
I think that the stereotype of community college students is that we are dumb, or lazy and that we couldn't get into bigger schools. That could't be farther from the truth! Community college students are actually VERY smart. We know that it's more economically smart to take general education classes at a local college and then transfer to a uni thus saving you time and money.
