Describe the students at your school.

My classesmates are very good friends and are fun to be around.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice I would give myself as a high school senior would be to prepare to study hard and make sure to follow my parents rules and get into the habit of applying for scholarships so that I could succeed in the rest of my college life.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I tell my friends that my school is a very organzied and peaceful way of learning.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

TCC has a wide range of degree programs to choose from. The campus I go to has thousands of kids but there are still small class sizes. The teachers understand that we are all working college students on different paths and are very helpful in trying to get us where we want to go. There are always Universities there showing us all of our options for further growth after our associates degrees or time completed at TCC. The location is close and in a good part of town and the facility is newer compared to other colleges and universities.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could talk to myself in High School I would remind myself to remain disciplined. In High School there were so many rules that I felt babied and couldn't wait to get out. And then when I had all the freedom in college I did not rise to the challenge. I have had mostly A's in High School and I would have told myself it is important to attend class and study in order to keep up with your GPA. I would have said, "Emily, stay focused." I would also tell myself not to be distracted by social life. I think I was trying to feel like I could go out any time I wanted. I would remind myself I am doing well not to partake in many activities that my peers do because they are a deterrent on the path to my success. I would say keep up the good work, you have found a good balance between work and play. And lastly I would tell myself be smart with your money, because textbooks do not grow on trees. I would tell myself do not worry about working so much, worry about keeping up your grades.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst part about TCC is the diversity, and the tuition waiver they offer. Although I pay for my school, a vast majority or the students attend school for free because they live in and graduated from Tulsa County. It means that not everyone is serious about their schooling. And while I know not everyone is on the same level it is very frustrating for professors to teach on a more basic level to accomodate all who are attending. They might try offering different levels of classes to better suit all of the diversity in the college.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If i could rewind time and whispher in the ear of the that girl finishing her senior year .I would tell her to have confidence within herself. Llisten to know one else but her heart. Apply to that four year university, and break away . Instead of getting stuck here for the next two years. Yearning for your chance to fly away. Step up to the plate so you want have to face all of the things i have to face all because i was afraid to chase affer my dreams. Living in a house full of sins. Dealing friends who want nothing out of life, but to trap a guy by having his baby. Hoping and praying every night that you want become like them. I would tell her that it is okay to be different. That I know that it's hurts now, but you will make it thought it.

What's unique about your campus?

Thebest thing about TCC is that it is free. That it gives me the opportunity to get an education even though I do not have any money. I feel truely blessed, because withput i am not sure i would even be attending college.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates, though it differs from person to person, typically want a good education without costing their parents a fortune, and are eager and dedicated.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The main thing I would have told myself as a high school senior would be to have tried to become and officer in a club at school. I was involved in the National Honor Society, and other club, but I never held a position. Knowing what I know now about what colleges are looking for for scholarships, I definately would have strived harder to immerse myself into a school club. On a different note, I would have told myself not to be so stressed during my senior year and just enjoy it more. Senior year is stressful with all the tests, final grades, work, and applying for scholarships and acceptance to schools that I should have taken an extra breath or two and calmed down. I would have also mentioned that college life of course is no walk in the park, but that it can be very fulfilling and just plain fun!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is dedicated, hard working, efficient with their money, and either just has a desire to learn or would like Tulsa Community College to be a great and sturdy stepping stone to university should attend this school. It's a great community college and people wanting a better future should attend here to get them on that path.

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

With its' four different locations, and huge variety of classes, Tulsa Community College is an excellent school for students who are not quite ready to leave the nest, but still want to pursue a post-secondary education.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

1) Go to class! This is not anything like high school. Some professors give attendance points and those points can mean the difference between an A or B. 2) Get to know your professors. They have been through exactly what you are going through. Talk to them, email them, and call them. No matter how hard they may be on you?they do want you to succeed. 3) Treasure the long nights of uninterrupted sleep you are getting now, because nights like those will be few and far in-between once you start college. ?Sleep is a luxury, the time-oriented enjoy and the procrastinators covet.? 4) Always, always, always ask questions about whatever it is you do not understand. The worst mistake you can make is to sit there silently confused and try to play ?catch-up? right before your test. 5) Constantly know what your grades and gpa are. There is a plethora of scholarships and clubs that you are qualified for with the right grades. 6) And finally, LIVE IT UP! This will be one of the most challenging and fun transitions in your life. Do not be shy. Everyone is just as nervous as you are.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Tulsa Community College is the professors. They are all down-to-earth and genuinely want us students to succeed. As boring as school can be sometimes, their individual teaching styles keep us eager to learn more.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates seem to be hardworking students who come from different ways of life including working parents to those just out of high school and new to the environment, all with the same goal of getting a degree and better way of life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, i would tell myself that college is not just for the smarter and more well off students around me. I have had more opportunities moving around the country than any single student who has lived in the same area their whole life. Just because your grades are affected in a negative way does not mean that it is because you dont know what you are doing. Many teachers just do not understand how hard it is for a student to catch up at every new school. Take it slow and try to remember how that one special teacher taught you and apply it to your other subjects. Ask more questions without feeling intimidated, even though it seems everyone knows more than you. Talk to the career counselor early and find out about different careers so that you can try to figure out where your strengths are and work towards them while still in high school. Visit campuses around the area, even the local Community college, to get a feel of college life. Finally, know who you are and dont be scared of growing up!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Tulsa Community College is a great place to start for all students. It lays a strong foundation for students who are either getting a 2-year degree from TCC or who are like me, and pursuing a 4-yr degree at a private university. It has almost all the options any college student would want in a future career and Professors who are serious about what they do.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Tulsa Community college allows for smaller classroom setting making communication/help better between the student and professor. The school also has a variety of class schedules making it easier to work around any type of schedule.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to take things slow, and do not overload myself with work and school. More advice would be to not allow myself to get caught up in the freedom of college life, such as not having parents tell you that you need to study. The main advice i would tell myself is that school is the most important thing, and to always put it first.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type of person best fitted for this typer of environment is someone who generally has a difficult schedule to work around.

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

Tulsa Community College is very helpful, reliable, and a great way to experince education on a smaller scale before pursuing graduate school.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Tulsa Community College is best known for it's different campuses, professors who will do anything, in regards, to helping students pass the courses, and their variety of organizations students can join in helping their education.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to get involved with everything possible my senior year of highschool and as a college freshman. To be able to focus more on a career that is stable and not based on monitary value. To join a soriety, they will not only help with socialization, but with education as well. I would tell my self to concentrate on finishing, and not allowing my self to get overwhelmed with what's going on in the world. I need to be able to study on my subjects as being a Teacher, put my focus on graduating with my Bachelor's degree and to be able to make good decisions for the time being and my future, so that I will not have to look back at the poor decisions I made.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In retrospect, if I could return to myself as a senior in high school, I would advise myself to do whatever it took to complete my degree as soon as I graduated. As a non-traditional student and divorced mother of two daughters with sole custody, I find it more challenging to attend school now. I work 3 part-time jobs to allow me to work around my own college schedule as well as the activities and school schedules of my children. If I could return to myself as a senior in high school, I would want to show myself a movie of what my future held as it stands today. I would probably point out certain things like the dark circles and bags beneath my eyes from a lack of sleep, the cost for babysitters and childcare that I incure while in class and away from my daughters, as well as the absence of a social life and hobbies.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Tulsa Community College is an institution that allows people of all backgrounds, ages, and nationalities to attend. The college has an extensive variety of courses and schedules to accomodate any student or person wishing to attend. They offer a number of locations to students as well. TCC is the kind of school for all students.

Describe the students at your school.

The best way to describe my classmates at Tulsa Community College is dynamic. The student body of my college encompasses High School students, International students, Working Professionals, Current Educators, and even retired individuals. I thoroughly enjoy the interactions I share with my classmates as it is a learning experience for both my classmates and myself. Simply by conversing with an International student, Working Professional, or retired individual I am able to take a brief step inside their world.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and talk with myself as a high school senior, knowing what i know now about college life and making the transition, I would give myself this advice which was first given by bill gates himself. "Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades; they will give you as many chances as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bare the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life." The purpose of giving myself this information would be to spur me to realize that college is nothing like high school. It is long, expensive, time consuming, difficult, but the trade of all these difficulties are a future. Television shows and movies depict a grand life of an easy coming unequivocally but this simply is not true. By telling myself this quote i would invite myself to champion the halls of my academic Studies, knowing that the end justifies the means. Yes, friends may be forsaken, parties unattended, late nights never undertaken but nothing worth having is easy, and everything worth having is obtainable.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I consider the long waiting list to speak with a counselor at Tulsa Community College to be the worst thing about my school. Despite dispersing a student body across 4 campuses Tulsa Community College still suffers from a 60-150 minute wait to talk with an academic counselor, regardless of what time of year it is. During enrollment periods this is to be expected, but the counseling office is always this busy. Granted, the college has attempted to remedy this issue by offering course enrollment and academic advisement online but more often than not these methods are more problematic.
