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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a wonderful campus with friendly people and helpful teachers. David Neff and Andrea Palmisano are my FAVORITES! I never feel that I am unsafe or at risk. I want to continue to attend Tidewater Community College until I am eligible for transfer. It has been an absolute pleasure!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Upon graduating high school, I was extremely nervous about becoming an adult. That may sound strange, but in fact, a lot of people my age face this kind of anxiety daily – we talk about it often. With that being said, I did not feel like I was responsible enough to move far from home and indulge myself in full-on college life style. Instead, I decided to enroll at Tidewater Community College, and I can honestly say that it was the first and best adult decision I have ever made. At TCC the class sizes are small, which gives every student the opportunity to get to know their professors and actively participate in the classroom. Walking into a room where the professor knows exactly who I am always boosts my confidence and level of attention. With a 25:1 student-teacher ratio, I would have to try extremely hard to get lost in the crowd. Also, here at TCC, professors go out of their way to ensure that each student not only meets, but exceeds their expectations. In and out of the classroom, they push us to study, attend class, and read ahead. Professors here at TCC are a part of our support system, rather than a force working against us. A visitor strolling through campus will also find themselves in the middle of a hectic, active student body. At TCC we believe in being an active member of our community, so everywhere one turns there is either a political meeting, community service opportunity, or a recreational sport being played. I am also proud to say that over half of the students attending TCC are members of Phi Theta Kappa, an honor society that recognizes outstanding academic achievement and provides students with a competitive edge. My time at Tidewater Community College has been extremely well spent, and has adequately prepared me for the next step in my life. With help from my professors, Phi Theta Kappa, and the supportive Administration Team here at TCC, I am now a well-rounded, confident adult, but always a student first.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tidewater Community College is more of a gateway school. This institution isn't for campus life and the real college experience. For example I along with a couple of friends I graduated High School with are attending TCC to get our general education courses out of the way at a cheaper rate. This is my last semester attending TCC and I look to continue my education at VCU in the Spring. Don't get me wrong TCC is a cool and great place to earn some credits and transfer but not really a great place for the college experience most students are looking for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I see this school as a great opportunity to get your feet into a four year university. They provide emails of upcoming events and actively contact their students to participate in anything local related to either your degree program or just for kicks to get some stress off your chest. Even the professor's will try to suggest a few links or programs to enhance the success rate throughout the class which are incredibly helpful. This school, as long as you are motivated with a will to succeed then the experience that you get becomes one of the best experiences you will not regret. Though as great as it is, be sure to still keep safe and walk with a companion if you can - a city is still a city.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great college if you are on a budget but ready to improve your skills. Awesome for transferring to 4 year colleges. Integrated into the downtown area, so it can be confusing to find and navigate at first but surrounded by places to eat and shop. Lots to do with the water so close by and Virginia Beach 30 minutes out. I would recommend this school to anyone!

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Tidewater Community College is the perfect school to transition from high school to a 4-year institution, because you can take normal college without moving away and adjusting to a brand new environment.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Tidewater Community College has very few social events, which means that if you don't know people already attending the school you willl not have many opportunities to make friends or socialize.
