A good college to attend
All of the professors are great; they truly care about their students and show it in the classroom. I highly recommend Tc3 to everyone.
Tompkins Cortland community college is a not an ideal college for you if you're not on a sports team. The school is practically controlled by the sports. On campus there's not much to do unless you like disc golf or handball. The teachers however are very helpful when it comes to your school work. They're always there to help you whenever you need it. They also have an awesome tutoring center which provides extra support outside of the classroom. The cafeteria food is disgusting, and the cafeteria is not open on the weekends which doesn't accommodate to students who live in the dorms.
I love this school. It is very environmentally friendly as well. The college runs nearly completely on solar power and much of the food in the cafeteria and coffee shop is grown on the campus' sustainable organic farm. The academics are excellent and there is always great activities going on.

For me, making the transition into college was much more difficult than the normal freshman because I was raised as a home schooled student. When I began attending TC3 at fifteen I carried insecurities from my untraditional education. While my home schooling instilled in me a huge appetite to learn, it also evoked a need to prove my intellect. Had I believed more in myself, and fostered a deeper sense of self-esteem, I could have made the transition much more easily. As it was, my constant overachievement kept me on the edge of exhaustion and physical well-being. It took a while before I recognized that my testing anxiety and self-criticism were crippling me. With realization, I now pursue my interests with a sense of calm, and freeness. My advice to myself as an entering college student would be that pursuit of what we love is hampered by fear, and a person must look for self-worth within themselves rather than in others.
My classmates are a very diverse group from various regions.
TC3 is best know for quality teachers who really take time to help their students out.
As TC3 has developed good reputation, its merits have been counterweighted by stricter policy, lesser tolerance, and overworked faculty. In the time I?ve attended TC3, the regulations for student organizations, one of TC3?s strong points, have become arbitrarily limiting. Now, clubs which contribute in a constant, innovative manner to the campus and community are forced to jump through hoops; for example, they are givin extra paperwork and have mandatory participation in "community projects" designed by Student Activities. While the new policies are likely well-intentioned, they prevent self-motivated organizations from pursuing more relevant and individualized motives.
?Diversity? at TC3 is real; not a sought-after statistic, but a natural occurrence. It is expressed not only in race and color, but in age, opinion, background, and goals. For me, this is invaluable in a college. Students are taught in an environment where they have as much to learn from those around them as they do from their books. I have taken a class which included a woman from a senior center, a fifteen-year old homeschool student, a student from the Bronx, a nursing student in her forties, an exchange student from Turkey, and two local students.
TC3 is a great gateway college. It is a stepping stone to almost any other destination, from a four year college to a skilled profession. You get out of it what you put into it. Therefore, the people who are best suited for TC3 are those who are motivated to seek out opportunities and make the most of their learning environment.
A person who should not attend TC3 is anyone who is un-motivated, and irresonsible. A person who cannot efficently manage thier time, and complete tasks in a timly fashion, would not be able to excell at Tompkin-Cortland-Community-College.
TC3 has unique features that distinguish it in the eyes of the students who take advantage of it's special opportunities. My friends and I have availed ourselves of it's study abroad like programs and club trips. I was able to go on a white water rafting adventure last spring for a personal cost of only $50! Complementing these travel opportunities are inspiring teachers. Many overqualified professors change lives every semester, from working with students on independent ecological research in Costa Rica to working with them personally to help them find their future.
Before attending TC3 I wish I knew that financial situations should not control big decisions, like choosing colleges. I declined my number one school choice because I could not afford it and it may be one of the biggest things I regret doing. TC3 was and is cheaper, and that controlled my decision, yet I am very unhappy. I also wish I knew that making friends is not something that comes naturally, and that keeping to myself is not only okay to do, but may be crucial to accomplishing moving on in my degree.
I always brag about the size of the classrooms and the ability to speak with a professor in a short time span.
