It was very difficult to get enrolled but it's awesome once I am finally in. Due to Covid-19, there is not many activities but TMCC tried their best to get everyone involved. I am always updated about events on campus and truly enjoy my experience at this college.
As a commuter college, TMCC's environment is cultivated toward academic success while aiming to provide a variety of of quality student services . There are a plethora of students studying during daylight hours in the library , others hanging out in the halls between classes, and events are put on by the student government nearly every week each semester. Thus, the education is fueled by a great learning environment that the students enjoy before travelling home. The professors are dedicated to making sure students do well and understand course material, being available outside of class in their offices or via email. Adding to the resources that teachers provide are the number of free services students can utilize. Academic advisement, disability resources, counseling services, financial literacy training—all these things and more are made available to students, making it easier to navigate the college scene. Overall, I am very pleased with TMCC. It was an affordable option that didn't cut back on the things students need the most, and has been time well spent.
Truckee Meadows is a nice decent size school. It has a very safe and friendly feel to it and I've never felt left out. There are some things that make going to TMCC tedious. It seems like most students have issues when they are applying for the school and signing up for classes. seems like something in the system that just makes the whole process even more stressful then it already is. I haven't started a semester there yet and I've already had to go many many many times to fix issues that shouldn't even be an issue in the first place.
Overall I am happy with my decision to attend TMCC. Many of my instructors have previously taught or are also professors at UNR. Furthermore, as an non-traditional student there have been plenty of classes available online or after 5 p.m. which has been essential to my success and ability to maintain a job and attend school. The student population is diverse which contributes to creative and multifaceted interactions while in class.
The number of parking spots at TMCC has increased, which is an improvement. The east lot is a bit far from where classes are held. This can lead to increased theft or safety concerns.
I have heard rumors that transfers from TMCC to UNR go poorly for some students but the few people I personally know that have transferred had no issues with transferring.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Truckee Meadows 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 _____.
If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would say do not wait 15 years to go to college! You can do it and their are people their who want to help you suceed. You can follow your dreams and surpass them, no one is stopping you except for yourself. You will have the help you need just put your faith in the system and ask for help when you need it. You are smarter than you think you are and you will enjoy learning more than you ever could have imagined. Its not high school, high school is childish and pety in college you can become what you want to be no worrying about the "cool kids" its all about you!
Truckee Meadows for me is a booster school its helping me getting down all my core classes and is helping prepare me for bigger things. The best thing is I?m getting my associates degree for a lot less money and its helping me transfer to the University of Nevada Reno. Without this community college I probably wouldn?t have been able to afford college all together. It?s help minimize the loans I?ve needed to take out and given me a broader education.
What I don't like about TMCC is the way some of the receptionist's help or try and answer your questions. They would, sometimes, not let you finish asking your question before they answer. There are times when you ask for something specific then they answer it differently, then they don't always do everything in thier power to try and help you figure things out. these are the things I dont like about TMCC.
Organized, diverse school that helps accomidate students inorder to succeed
I did quite a bit of research about this particular school as well as the program I was hoping to persue before I enrolled. I adapted quickly to the Community College setting (I had attended a major University for two years) so that was not something I felt unprepared for. I guess the only thing I really wish I could have known before enrolling is whether or not I am going to be accepted to the Radiology program this fall, I am very anxious to find out.
I'm not sure who shouldn't attend the college. The reason's being its fairly reasonable moneywise, the classes are medium sized. You could blend in and be invisible but you would'nt be lost or forgotten by the teacher. Most of the proffesors are also very willing to help you in passing thier classes. There is a disabilities resource center to help with extra testing time and, a quiter testing room. There is also a free tutoring center for computers to spanish, and to study aswell.
The most frustrating thing at my school would be that getting a 3 on an AP exam doesn't count but it does at the University.
My classmates are very organized and keep up with their work. They take school very seriously and participate in every activity. Everyclass mate that I have has a unique personality. Some are sweet and outgoing and others are shy and quite but, when it comes to school they all do what it takes to recieve the best grade they can get. I guess you can say they are inspirational its awesome feeling to see them work so hard to earn a degree and I feel really proud to say that i am proud to be part of an amazing school.
TMCC is a great school, same classes as a 4 yr. college although the cost is less, classes are smaller. It's a great first time school for someone who wants the college experience, but is intimidated by the thought of attending a larger college.
Outstanding nursing program.
The instructors are very passionate about the subjects they teach.
I brag about how small the classes are. I also brag that I am able to get more personal attention from the teachers since the classes only have a small number of people unlike some of the university classes that have up to 300 students in them.
ENGLISH! I love english. And the teachers are amazing to work with.
The school is very small and not too crowded so it isn't a huge distraction to work. Also I love the diversity of people that is enrolled in the school. It leaves so many open doors to make new friends. Overall I am very satisfied with the school.
