What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tidewater Community College is a great environment for graduated high school students to figure out whether or not they want to attend a four year college. A lot of graduating high school students aren't exactly sure what to expect out of college, TCC really helped me figure out if college was for me. TCC is also a great place for students to figure out what kind of degree they want, for much cheaper than a four year college. Students are able to explore different classes freely, without the hefty price that four year universities charge. Overall, the campuses are clean and modern. All of the campuses have been newly renovated, and have multiple resources for students, like cafeterias, Starbucks, computer labs, testing centers, libraries,tutoring centers, and even child care. The instructors, at least in my experience, are some of the best professors in the area. All of my instructors have been passionate about their subject, and have influenced the classroom environment greatly. Most instructors are available 24/7 for questions and concerns via email, phone, or during class. The class sizes at TCC are normally small in number, and classrooms in the newly built buildings have computers at each desk. TCC also offers a lot of online courses. I have taken multiple online courses, and have enjoyed them greatly. Most online classes entail a discussion board, quizzes, and other assignments. Online classes are perfect for individuals with full-time jobs, children, or odd work schedules. Tidewater Community College offers a great learning environment for all students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tidewater Community College is a good college which is assisting me in furthering my education. After some soul searching I have come to realize with my adviser where I want to be within the next 2 years. It has helped me to gain confidence that I can reach my goal and has helped to direct me in the proper direction where I do feel if I had to do alone i would be lost. The are really great and helpful even when something goes wrong with your tuition assistance. Overall I would say A- since there is always room for improvement!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Tidewater Community College is alright. It's definitely the college to got to if you just want to get some classes out of the way, but definitely not for the "college experience." There's not many clubs to join and as far as socializing goes, unless you're a 30-year-old man who enjoys to interrupt the class to make a crude comment, don't expect much. Professors are great though! Just have to find the right ones.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Tidewater Community College is that it is a great place to learn, most of the professors there are easily accessible and are easy to talk to. I actually work at the Chesapeake campus student center and have really enjoyed my time there, the other students are around my age and I have made many friends in the past two years here. The activities that I usually partake in throughout the week are basketball which is the main thing that most students participate in and football on the weekends. Also, there are many events that Tidewater has for their students to participate in throughout the week so there is basically always something to do not to mention the gaming center and fitness rooms. Overall I would suggest anyone coming out of high school or wanting to start their college career to go to Tidewater Community College. With their friendly and welcoming atmosphere this is a great place for a student to gain their associates in a technical degree or if you plan on transferring to a four year institution.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly enjoyed my time at Tidewater Community College. It's a small campus without much school involvement, but as a money saver and stepping stone to a four-year university, it cannot be beaten. Professors are passionate and classes sizeable to promote genuine learning

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I think it is worth it to spend your first two years here then transfer because it saves money. So far my professors have been teaching well, and the campus is sized right enough for individuality and fitting in at the same time. The campus is close enough to grab a bite and make it to class on time. The people are somewhat friendly, but overall everyone kind of minds their business. Sadly there isn't a lot of clubs on my campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is a great place to get started in learning a career, which is why I come here. It is a bit pricey, but the what you get is far worth it. The college also has a high percentage of people who pass the N-Clex exam each year, and is a cheap alternative to neighboring schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a very solid little campus to allow a stepping stone into a four year college. The teachers are very friendly and enjoy helping aid students for college success. Teachers will work with you, understanding life happens and willing to work around any short comings or unfortunate events.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tidewater Community College is a great starting point for anyone who is unsure of what major they want to declare before attending a 4-year university. It is also a good alternative to an additional 2 years at a university for simple gen ed classes. TCC is very affordable and can save you thousands down the line if you attend 2 years before transferring to a further institution. The teachers a great from what I've experienced so far. A course there will always be a few teachers who aren't so good like any other campus. My best advice to people signing up for classes is for them to go through ratemyprofessor beforehand. TCC is awesome, just make sure you have a plan after your first year so you can get on track towards your intended major.
