I think my school is best known for community-involvement and for offering classes to some who may not be able to afford it. Many students of Tulsa Community College are going back to school for a degree, or parents who never had time for school. It is a great opportunity for any lifestyle.
I love the atmosphere and diversity. I am in the higher level classes like Calculus III so all fellow classmates are older. It is great to interract with them and hear their stories. The professors are very kind and I love the small class sizes. Tulsa Community College also has a program called Tulsa Achieves which I am a part of. I am able to receive up to sixty-four hours of credit for free with forty hours of community service a year.
Whenever my family brought college up in high school I always dreaded it. I absolutely hated the thought of endless hours of studying, being all alone with complete strangers, and trying to decide what to do with the rest of my life. The key to college is just relax. Most students change their major, and they're just as nervous as you. Meeting new people isn't scary it is amazing. I've made so many friends who are completely different. I have many adults in my classes and it is so interesting and inspiring to hear their stories and why they decided to go back to school. Hearing how bad they want a degree makes me work even harder because I know it is the best thing to do. I would also tell myself that true friends will stay your friend no matter what. If they don't stay then family will always have your back. Time management is key to surviving classes and studying should be a main priority. Mostly though, just relax and enjoy these amazing opportunities of your life.

Take a big deep breath. Life is about to change and it is scary but so exciting! You're going to be on your own, make new friends, and have some of the best days of your life! Living with your friends is awesome and living alone really makes you mature. Now it will be a big responsibility getting yourself up and out of bed for early classes because mom and dad won't be there to nudge you along. Give yourself some room for mistakes and sleeping in a couple times, but get over it quickly and learn from your mistakes. Most importantly- explore. Make some new friends that you may not have otherwise given a second thought. Try new foods. Join clubs. Eat some healthy meals, not all pizza. Exercise. Sleep in on weekends. Don't be afraid to ask for help and seek out resources, because they are there. Write your friends and family often. Call home once a week, maybe more. They miss you, and I know you miss them. Most of all, have fun. This is the next journey in life so live it up and live up to your potential. You can do it!
The parking downtown was terrible. The bookstore was very helpful and had everything I needed. I wish I would have pursued more scholarships back then and utilized more of the labs and resources available at the time.
Anyone looking to advance their career or start a new one should consider TCC. There were a lot of adult students and new college students so everyone can find somewhere to fit in.

If I could advise my high school self, I would say to research the application process more thoroughly. It wasn't until I enrolled in Tulsa Community College under the Tulsa Achieves scholarship, that I realized just how complicated the administrative side of college is. I was little prepared to tackle FAFSA, student advisors, class schedules, and book fees. Perhaps if I had been more prepared, the transition would have been much less frantic and overwhelming. In my Freshman year I would force myself to fill out that long application to join National Honor Society when they offered me a spot. I would tell myself to take AP Government and AP American History, because I would have succeeded in those courses and received credit in college. I would tell myself to volunteer more, because it would have exposed me to more experiences, and prepared me for the forty hours of volunteer work I now do for my scholarship. Finally, I would tell myself to quit the two jobs I held during high school, because even though I maintained near perfect grades my entire high school career, I could have used that extra time to prepare for college.
There are classes available for every kind of student. Whether you are looking for easy A's or to join the Honors program, you will find the right classes here. There is a lot of diversity in the kinds of students and professors that go to this school. Returning students, fresh out of high school, you name it. This school is great if you are looking to get a degree, or if you need a stepping stone to get to a four-year college. Tulsa Achieves qualifiers should also take advantage of the opportunity- it's a lifesaver.
There is an inconsistency in teacher quality, but that can be avoided by careful reseach on Ratemyprofessor.com. Many of my peers are undedicated and immature, but that could be due to the general education classes I'm taking. If you were to take Honors classes or higher level courses, you would probably find a more serious crowd of students. All in all, though, I've been pleased with the teachers I have selected. There are five campuses and they have difficulty working together, which can sometimes cause trouble with paperwork and financial aid.

One of the best things about my school pertains to its overall size. Each class has a limited number of students, so the student is never just a number. The personal attention everyone receives is a distinct advantage over the anonymity that goes along with a lecture hall setting.
I haven't found anything to be considered frustrating at Tulsa Community College. It has thus far only enabled me to begin getting college classes before starting my education at a four year university.

I would give myself some much needed advice. At the time, I had no plans to attend college and no ambitions. I would advise my younger self to place more importance on school and to put more effort into my school work.

My school has an awesome learning disability program for our students! I am so proud that our college is so accomodating to our students with disabilities. We have over four campuses and each one has their own learning disabiliity center.
I really would not tell my senior self much simply because going through different mile stonesin college has shaped myself in to the young woman I am today. College has been an expierence like no other and continues to be one. Within my first semester of college I became the Student Government President at my campus and there is nothing I could have told my senior self to help prepare for that. With that position came big responsibilites, I was now in charge of people who were way older than I was. I was also going to the state capitol to go to state meetings. I grew so much in my first two years of college. I would not have given any advice because life is not about what you WOULD have done, it is about what you DO.
I wish I would have known my entire college plan so I could plan my semesters out more wisely, but I have it under control now.
Most of my classmates are not dedicated enough to succeed, but the ones who are will go far in their lifes and careers.

If I could go back in time to my high school, I would tell myself, "Wake up! You can have it easy; just work hard, stay focused, and believe you can do this." I would also tell my 15 year old self, "You made it to honors; now run with it to get a scholorship. Think of no loans and getting an education; debt free!" "You may think you understand things now and how money works in the world, but I am sorry, you dont!" "...Make our futures better and work hard now because life is not about high school; that is just the beginning. Real life starts in college and after high school." "I love us and want us to have a better life in the fututre and only you can change that!", said by 25 year old adult me, with 3 children and working.
The best thing about Tulsa Community College is that it lead me to believe in myself and to triumph over all given obstacles. I have managed to earn the opporuntity to join the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and mantain at least a 3.5 GPA since the start at TCC. I have recieved the Deans Honor Roll for every semester I have gone to this school. This school let me succeed so well that I have earned and been accepted into the University of Tulsa, ranked #33 in the country.

December 28th, 2008. The day I first stuck my finger down my throat to become perfect. I was a freshman in High School, searching for my place in a sea of pubescent teenagers. Naturally, I believed the stunning goddesses in my class had it all. I concluded that they held a magic that engrossed all within their presence; magic I did not possess. Ostracized by those around me, I turned to what I thought would be my cure to my social status: Bulimia. That was the first night I would purge my dinner. October 12, 2013. Six years later, forty pounds thinner, and severely depressed, I found myself in the emergency room. I was told my heart was going to stop within three weeks if I continued with Bulimia. Three months of treatment later I found myself the cure I had sought six years earlier: me. I am not defined by external appearance, my I.Q, or by my social status. I am defined by the empathy I feel, the love I bestow, and the hope I share. If I had only known that the magic I sought was already in staring at me in the mirror.
