    Campus Safety

    There is an amazing security teem and I feel very safe on campus

    What to do for fun

    Anything you want, it is Cleveland after all.

    Food and Dining

    I never eat on campus, if I do I bring my own food.

    Dorm Life

    No dorm where I am.

    Academic Rigor

    It is at the level you would expect a community college to be at.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you ever think that you can't do something, talk to a counselor or teacher and they will tell you if it is possible and they will help you with it.

    In three sentences

    Clubs and Activities

    The college has many great clubs to become involved in, my favorite is the anime club and the honor society.

    Bang for the buck

    If you are interested in transferring to Cleveland State, tri-c is a great place to start your journey. They have a great program that works along side Cleveland State and creates as little stress with transitioning to Cleveland State.

    Food and Dining

    Food is fine and if you budget right you can spend about $300 a semester. I recommend the pizzas, specially when their are promotions.

    Dorm Life

    No dorm life

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are as hard as you make them, but before signing into any class research the professors.

    Tips for prospective students

    Have fun and speak up in class. Tri-c is a great place to meet and create many friendships with both teachers and classmates. Also always try to research websites or other stores for the best prices. Before opening you text asked the professors if they will be using the book or if you could get the later version.

    In three sentences

    Tri-c is a great place to study, meet new and interesting people, and professors. As long as you are open to new experiences and willing to work hard, the teachers and faculty are willing to help in any way they can.

    Campus Safety

    Campus police available throughout school day. You can visit their office any time if you have any questions or concerns.

    Clubs and Activities

    Clubs for everyone.

    Great for these types of students

    Tri-c is great for those who do not have a lot of money but want to further they're education and those who have a busy life but want they're degree on their own time, those who can't attend 5 days a week.

    Bang for the buck

    They are not as expensive as a four year college so it's affordable for everyone without going into a lot of loans.

    What to do for fun

    There are multiple clubs you could join, cos and bands you can be a part of for fun.

    Food and Dining

    The school does have a cafeteria and a cute little cafè with some great food. The also have a line of vending machines on the bottom floor if you're wanting something quick. There are also some fast food joints nearby, especially the campus downtown.

    Dorm Life

    Since it is a community college, there are no dorms but because campuses are spread out, it's easy to find apartments nearby.

    Academic Rigor

    Tri-c offers a lot of programs to allow students to step outside of their box and experience new things or just enjoy doing something that is not related to their major. They offer debate clubs, drama club, music programs, student council, athletics, science clubs and many others.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of the tutoring and homework help given for free by your teachers and student ambassadors. They are there to help you succeed.

    In three sentences

    Tri-c offers a great opportunity to further your education on your own time. They allow you to get a great education without having to pay a heavy load of money as other schools would. They offer many great programs, something for everyone, such as medical, automotive, culinary and many others.

    Bang for the buck

    Tri-C has the lowest fee per credit hour, which makes it so much more easy to pay for classes, and financial aid usually covers all of it.

    What to do for fun

    Join a club! Get involved with anything! I personally like the ASL club, but all the clubs are great.

    Food and Dining

    Java City has the best coffee ever! They also have tea, if you don't drink coffee or smoothies. They also have great cold cut sandwiches if you don't feel like eating pizza or burgers.

    Dorm Life

    There isn't a dorm at Tri-C; everyone commutes via the RTA or carpool.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest that if you are looking to go to Tri-C, to take a tour of the campus. So many people got lost and need a map. I would also meet with a counselor just to go over scheduling. I would also suggest that you research your professor to see what they're like before you take a class.

    In three sentences

    Tri-C is really where futures begin; The faculty and staff are amazing, they really take the time to get to know you and understand what you need. The classes are challenging and fun. If you do need extra help, there are plenty of tutors, some of which are actual professors which is a plus.

    Campus Safety

    Campus is very safe. There are always police on campus, and if you feel uncomfortable at night they will escort students to their cars. Although, the location of campus is very safe. It is in a small suburb.

    Greek Life

    Phi Theta Kappa, not a fraternity or sorority but an honors club.

    Clubs and Activities

    Veteran's Club Sports (Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Track, Crosscountry) Student Government Business Focus Club The Voice Student Newspaper Chess Club Dance Club Drama Club Psychology Club Extreme Wellness Club French Club History Club International Club Japanese Culture Club Music Club Student Peace Alliance

    Great for these types of students

    This college is great for student looking to save money, and want a fast paced education. Students who want to stay at home, and not live on campus. Students who do not want to be a part of fraternities or sororities.

    What to do for fun

    There are student clubs such as, government, international, business, etc. Anyone can also try out for sports.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good and there are plenty of options, although it is pricey.

    Dorm Life

    Everyone at Cuyahoga Community College lives off campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes will be harder than others. Some professors will be harder than others. It all depends on what a student is talented at.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not eat at the cafe, this will save you a lot of money. If you need help go to tutoring, the hours are flexible and it's free with your tuition; get everything you pay for, such as, tutoring, career services, etc. Finally, do not be afraid to ask your teachers for help they are there to help you and honestly love when their students ask them questions.

    In three sentences

    The teachers and staff at Cuyahoga Community College really care about their students and want to help them succeed. The staff is always there to help and have flexible office hours and free tutoring to make sure students will pass classes. Out of a possible 10 I would give Cuyahoga Community College an 8 based on helpful teachers, activities and easily accessible financial aid.

    In three sentences

    Hospitality Management Program receiving lots of cool publicity as culinary and restaurant options open up all over the Northeast Ohio area. The program provides great hands-on learning and the professors have real world experiences which they share with the students. Loved the program.

    No dorms

    Tips for prospective students

    If you plan to transfer, know where you want to attend, it'll make your life much easier because you're able to look online to see what will transfer for sure as well. Also, just focus on school just as much as you would anywhere else, Tri-C is underestimated, it's not as easy as people think. Keep track for things happening at the College as well, like internship opportunities and college visits.

    In three sentences

    Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, but Tri-C's education is just as hard as others. You are also saving a ton of money than you would anywhere else. Credits do transfer to other Colleges/Universities, so it's not a waste of time.

    Campus Safety

    Small school with a decent sized personal police force. Never feel threatened while on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    Has them but they are nothing to brag about.

    Great for these types of students

    Old students going back to college. High school students looking to get ahead.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    No traditions to speak of here

    Bang for the buck

    It's a bargain school so I would say the bang for the buck here is decent. They do try to get you back with the food though

    What to do for fun

    Decent rec activities. I enjoy the frisbee golf course

    Food and Dining

    Very much over priced and very much awful as far as taste and selection go.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms here

    Academic Rigor

    Not difficult at all. You can easily coast through any class here.

    Tips for prospective students

    If your looking for a few cheap credits this is your school, if not go somewhere else.

    In three sentences

    Tri-C is a great starter college that you can get undergrad credits finished and taken care of for a cheaper price. It is not however a great school for a two year program and generally gives you multiple problems during the semester. I guess the best way to describe it is by saying that you get what you pay for.

    What to do for fun

    I do not live near campus. I also work full-time and have a family so do not have time to participate in any of the extra-curricular activities. However, I have scoped out the Eastern campus' gym and it is phenomenal. I'm in the honors program (but as I said earlier, don't have time to participate in anything). The honors program does put things together for participants (e.g., speakers, plays, and other events).

    Food and Dining

    I've only dined at the eastern campus. Food is decent in quality and price.

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus. But as far as I am aware, dorms are not available.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm currently taking Anatomy/Physiology. Not easy but with the right instructor it is doable.

    Tips for prospective students

    When the instructor gives you tips on how to do well in their class, listen!

    In three sentences

    Love it! I have a degree from a 4-year university and decided to come back and earn another in order to change careers. The instructors are more down to earth and truly take their time with the students.

    Food and Dining

    The student center offers a café and a variety of vending machines. Any of your food needs can be met in the student center, not to mention a variety of restaurants across the street within walking distance.

    Dorm Life

    I commuted and never lived on the Tri-C dorms, therefore I cannot comment.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses could be tougher but most I've taken haven't cost me too many nights of sleep. The classes are run efficiently and I've learned a lot from my professors. The class size tends to be smaller to allow for the professor to have more time to help individual students if they need it. The classes feel a lot more connected than massive size lecture hall classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get your books early and get them online if you can. Also apply for scholarships and financial aid to save yourself money.

    In three sentences

    I attend the Eastern Campus at Tri-C. It's very accessible by local roads and highway and a nice looking. The school offers many helpful services into making you a better student and preparing you for your career.

    there are tons of fun things to do such as joining a sport we happen to have a wonderful basketball team. also there are many different social group activities that you can join.

    Food and Dining

    the food at this school is very good and tasty, but sadly the school food can be on the more expensive side.

    Dorm Life

    there is no dorm at this school.

    Academic Rigor

    the academics are wonderful here the teacher really want you to do well as do the other students. many time you can see class or group study around campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    my advice would be to stay focus and understand that school is not a race it is better to take longer and get better grades then to over work your self in on semester.

    In three sentences

    It is a wonderful school that offers a great amount of new opportunities, and it is a very multicultural school. The school is located in a wonderful area where it is easy locate. The environment in the school is always pleasant and class rooms size are kept small so you have a more one on one experience with the teacher.

    Dorm Life

    There aren't any dorms available.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the instructors here are very nice, funny and caring.

    Tips for prospective students

    Budget your money because the cost of books and school supplies are expensive. Try to arrive to class on time. Stay focused and if you don't understand anything, ask questions.

    In three sentences

    It's a decent school for people who don't want to straight into a 4-year university or can't afford college tuition. Some of the professors really care about whether their students succeed in their studies. There aren't many activities here but there are clubs and organizations available. The classes are small in sake of building a teacher/student relationship.

    Campus Safety

    I mean, sure there is plenty of campus security. They ride segways and patrol the lots. Would they actually help in an emergency? Probably not...

    Greek Life

    There is none. Which is a bonus; trust me.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are plenty of clubs, but they vary in value of time.

    Great for these types of students

    Poor students who don't know what they want to major in. I entered Tri-C having a clear course of action, and I am leaving with a totally different major. It didn't cost me anything to change my mind here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Students tend to just hang around and cause trouble. It's not violence or anything, but I warn you to not leave your car unlocked or items unattended even for a few minutes.

    Bang for the buck

    Phenomenal. If you get a Pell Grant, you don't have to pay. This is by far the best reason to come to this school.

    What to do for fun

    Find things to do outside of the college. There's not much worth doing. There are clubs, but they usually dissolve thanks to students who just lose interest. Honestly, I don't blame them. We didn't get anything done!

    Food and Dining

    Expensive. I try to avoid the food court at all times. The point of coming here is to save money, so don't blow all of your cash on an $8.00 cheeseburger.

    Dorm Life

    There is none. It's better to live in an apartment anyways. You don't have to have a roommate for an apartment twice the size of a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    As stated in other posts, it depends on the teacher. I personally find online classes better than brick-and-mortar classes, because you don't learn anything in class. In one business class, we discussed the deliciousness of KFC... Online classes allow you to learn what's important (with the bonus of an open book quiz each week).

    Tips for prospective students

    Enjoy the fact that you can study whatever you want without a huge amount of debt. Sure, this school sucks. Just remember, it'll be worth it once you transfer.

    In three sentences

    Cuyahoga Community College is a school where you get what you pay for, which is obviously not much. What the school lacks in a social atmosphere it makes up for in affordable education with some great teachers. AVOID ADMINISTRATION AT ALL COSTS, because they give you barely any solutions for hours wasted!

    If were a honors student all through high school, the Brunswick Campus does offer honor classes that will be great for those individuals. It is also great for students that need that individalized help, the classes are small so that is possible for those types of students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is nothing unusual about this Tri-c Campus

    Bang for the buck

    I dont much about it.

    What to do for fun

    You will have to wait until you are out classes, or before classes start, talk with other people like you.

    Food and Dining

    The school does have a java and vending machines here for the students to snack on before, during, and after classes.

    Dorm Life

    I currently don't live on campus, and Tri-c does not have on-living campus, just off-campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The Brunswick Campus certainly does have rigorious classes that you are required to pass if you want a 2 year degree from this college.

    Tips for prospective students

    You need to balance your life among the three, if you do the following: hang out with your friends on a daily basis, or try to at least, go to work every week, and on top of all of that, get homework and study for quizzes and tests. It will certainly take some time to get use to, but it's not impossible of a task, because I am currently doing of all of those things.

    In three sentences

    I am liking the Cuyahoga Community College Brunswick Campus. I love how the classes are small, and the teachers are very nice. I will enjoy going to the Tr-C my next year as a college sophomore.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is working to make sure that all students are safe by placing more cameras on center and hiring more security. No matter what time of the day it is, I feel safe attending Cuyahoga Community College.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs offered at all of the locations.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for everyone.

    What to do for fun

    There are many things to do for fun, such as workout in the gym, play basketball, practice playing drums, keyboards, or any instrument that you may play. I personally spent a lot of my time sitting in the middle of the school courtyard at Metro, playing my guitar with friends. Many times we attracted crowds and had numerous people join us in singing and playing our instruments. Also, Cuyahoga have a lot events that take place such as different dramas, dances, and sometimes job fairs. Oh, how can I forget, there's a game room in the lower level, that will give game fanatics the opportunity to socialize and meet with other people who have a love for video games. No matter if you're just a quiet person who enjoys spending time by yourself, or if you're a person who enjoys being around a large crowd of people, there's a place for you at Cuyahoga Community College.

    Food and Dining

    I personally love the food and dining. The cooks are extremely nice and tend to have conversations with me while they make my food. Cuyahoga also have salad bars available, which is rare in many community colleges. I enjoy eating fresh food, but besides the food, I enjoy seeing the cooks and cashiers, especially on days that aren't going too well.

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunately, Cuyahoga doesn't offer on campus living.

    Academic Rigor

    Cuyahoga Community College is full of professors and workers who want nothing but the best for each and every student who attends their school. In their own way, each of my professors have encouraged me to give my all and whenever one thought I was slacking or was struggling, he/she always asked what could he/she do to make sure I passed the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just make sure you are honest with your professors and come prepared to learn. No one will force you to do anything that you don't want to do, but I promise each and everyone of your professors will help you prosper and succeed. Many if not all, will go out of their way to make sure that you're on the right level!

    In three sentences

    Cuyahoga Community College isn't just in one location, but in four! They have four different locations scattered all across Cleveland, Ohio, to accommodate those who don't like traveling outside of their area or those who may like a specific area. Each school is unique in its own way, but they share one goal. And, that goal is to make sure that each and every student walks away more educated and successful than when he/she began.

    There are so many to choose from. Any one who was interested in getting involved would be able to find a club that sparked their interest.

    The garden squares are very neat. Looking into actually getting one!

    Bang for the buck

    SOOO CHEAP!!! Not only is it cheap but it is a great investment since almost all four year schools will take the credits earned at Tri-C as transfer credits for their institution.

    What to do for fun

    There are many clubs at Tri-C and students just need to find their own niche. For me the niches are Tri-C's Environmental Action Group, Phi Theta Kappa, and International Club.

    There is a cafe inside as well as a few local food places that aren't too far. There are many amenities to microwave packed meals.

    Dorm Life

    Obviously, there is no dorm life. But that is a great thing for those students who are very serious about their education and are the ones forking up the money for it. It's a strictly business campus and has a very productive atmosphere about it.

    Academic Rigor

    A bit simpler than high school for me but that is because I loaded up my high school schedule with nothing but honors classes and AP classes. Calc II was a bit of a wake up call on the other hand.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest signing up for classes sooner rather than later because they can fill up fairly quickly. Definitely get involved on campus; it's fun, you get to meet new people, and you are exposed to volunteer opportunities. Lastly, get in touch with the professor to make sure the required book is actually required for the class.

    In three sentences

    Tri-C is so ridiculously cheap. Not only is it cheap but you get quality education for a price many 4 year colleges would guffaw at. They may guffaw, but they still accept the transfer credits, which is great for me!!

    What to do for fun

    As odd as it may sound, walking around campus and sitting outside is extremely fun! I love getting to meet and talk to new people and there are always new people around campus, and it's beautiful out there, so that is definitely a plus!

    Tips for prospective students

    Have an open mind about community college. Having smaller class sizes means more personalized education, and the students and professors (while professional), are able to be laid-back which gives a healthy and functional learning environment.

    In three sentences

    Tri-C offers excellent quality education. I feel like my professors actually care about me, and know my name. It's not about grades here, it's about learning and succeeding.

    You have to learn your strengths and allow the school to assist you in accomplishing the task you need to build.

    There's a shooting fountain in the front where the buses are located but that's about it.

    What to do for fun

    There are a few clubs and sports you could join. As well as the library and recreation center that are typically open till late hours.

    Food and Dining

    They typically close pretty early especially during the summer. The cafeteria is usually open from 9 till 1

    There are on-campus police in the building and parking lots at all times.

    Greek Life

    There is a charter of Phi Theta Kappa at Cuyahoga Community College for full-time students with a GPA of a 3.5 or above.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a lot of clubs students can join, and even a few sports teams. Clubs typically meet a couple times a week, and sports sometimes meet daily during the heat of the season.

    Great for these types of students

    Cuyahoga Community College is a great starting place for students who want to save money and still end up with the same degree in the end. It is also a good place for students who have been out of school for many years, or those who did not pay as much attention as they should have in high school since there are remedial courses that can serve as helpful refreshers.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition for Cuyahoga Community College is the lowest in northeast Ohio. The classes are priced per credit hour, and those prices are very fair.

    What to do for fun

    Cuyahoga Community College has different facilities for each one of its campuses. This includes weight rooms, small on-campus eateries, tracks, and the restaurants that surround the area.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Cuyahoga Community College is pretty good. While some items in the cafeteria are a bit pricey, the vending machines offer a wide variety of items at an incredible cost.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms, so this is a moot section.

    Academic Rigor

    While every community college seems to get the reputation of being a joke, Cuyahoga Community College easily dispels that stereotype. Many of Cuyahoga Community College's courses are transferable to other universities and colleges, which shows that the rigor is equal to, or even in some cases greater than, other institutions.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that you stay focused on your studies because it can be easy to get into a habit of not studying or putting it off until the last second. This especially holds true for online classes, which require you to be very self-disciplined.

    In three sentences

    Cuyahoga Community College is the perfect place for students who want to save money by transferring to a four-year college later on. There are a wide variety of courses that are able to be transferred to universities all throughout Ohio, and even some out of state colleges. The programs and courses available are also flexible to help accommodate older, returning students and working students alike

    Dorm Life

    Since Tri-c is a community college at this time there is no on campus housing available.

    Academic Rigor

    Here at Tri-c it can be as easy as you allow it to be. I mean this by saying if you study as much as you possibly can then you will have no problem passing. If you should find yourself in a class that is a bit too challenging then I recommend tutoring. Tutoring is free to all Tri-c students and staff and nothing to be ashamed of.

    Tips for prospective students

    If planning to attend tri-c from another state, you might want to consider a scholarship or two.

    In three sentences

    Tri-c metro campus is awesome. It's very easy to navigate. They also offer abundant help with any such need (i.g. tutoring, counseling personal and school related, access to many different research tools, and more).

    The Jazz program in my opinion is a steal. If you can take advantage of it, you will learn a lot.

    I mostly bring my own food, but the choices of food aren't bad at all.

    Academic Rigor

    Students are definitely challenged in the Jazz Studies Program. I've been challenged from day once and challenges continue to come.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would tell prospective students that they should be ready to learn a lot and be ready to put in the time to learn everything. Even if a student isn't necessarily interested in Jazz, a lot can still be learned and applied to all types of music.

    In three sentences

    I've been learning a lot from the professors in the Jazz Studies Program at Tri-C. It's been an invaluable experience learning from the professors, collaborating with classmates, and learning from visiting artists. I would recommend this program to everyone.

    There are many things you can do at Tri-C. For instance join one of the many sport teams they have. You can jump in the pool and hit the hoops. If you are feeling lazy you can just sit down at table with your friends and surf the net. If you like to challenge your brain you can play a little chess. Many events also take place, for instance this semester we were able to dunk the school staff in a dunk tank, really fun!

    Food and Dining

    I do not eat at Tri-C alot, because my classes follow each other up. However, I have tried the Java cafe and the school cafeteria. They've got so yummy goodies! The vending machines provide different foods to, they are great if you are in a hurry. On the other hand if you have large time gaps between classes, the Western, Corporate College, and West shore campuses are surrounded by a variety of restaurants.

    Dorm Life

    I actually live with my family and have not experienced the Tri-C dorms and none of my friends have either. I would recommend checking them out on the internet or going to the campus in person.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic wise Tri-C is a great place to start no matter how old you are. If your a post secondary student or a senior citizen try to achieve a goal with your free time. The teachers I had for my courses were awesome. One can tell that they enjoy what they are doing and that helps make the class more enjoyable. Luckily, there are a lot of quiet zones for when it is time to cram for the exams. However, in pinion i feel a few courses could be a little more intense.

    Tips for prospective students

    1) Do not try to be a super genius and overwhelm yourself with subjects. 2) I recommend finish your lessons in the morning and have the timings close to each other. 3) I recommend the hybrid courses. The credits for these is divided into class time and online activities. 4) Enjoy it while it lasts. Sure it might not be the full college experience you were hoping for, but its worth every second. 5) Give the classes all you've got. For example I did so well in my Macro Economics course this semester I did not have to the final exam.

    In three sentences

    Tri-C is a really fun experience for students who want to obtain an Associates or complete some college for other reasons. It is inexpensive, fun, and works in to every persons schedule.

    Specifically, Tri-C west campus is located in Parma which has a mall five minutes down the street. Cleveland is roughly a half hour away, but there are a great amount of entertainment locations, dance clubs, restaurants, and a comedy club. In the other direction of campus is Strongsville which has the largest and most diverse area of stores, restaurants, toboggan shoots (in the metro parks) and the mall has just about every store imaginable.

    Prospective students: I suggest that you explore different majors if you are undecided by going to each department you're interested and asking them for the road map of classes that are expected for each major. Also, There are a great amount of speakers and events that go on throughout each semester. Take advantage of them, enjoy time with fellow students and usually there are free snacks!

    While attending Cuyahoga Community College I have learned a tremendous amount of knowledge from very intelligent and friendly teachers. Students who attend Tri-C are very diverse, yet they are similar in the work and social lives of each other, which was very welcoming and did not make me feel alone. I am very pleased that I chose to attend Tri-C, not only for the money saving benefits, but also for the experience of college life which has prepared me for my transfer to Kent State.

    The gym and pool on the Metropolitan campus are free to students. Just bring your card. The clubs need more people, so if you want to be in charge of something great, Metro campus is a good place to be.

    Academic Rigor

    On the Metropolitan campus, the nursing program and recording arts technology program get very good press. The science department has professors that will provide a structured environment. Preparation is key. You just need to look for professors that people say are tough. It's a good place to find out what you're in for in the college sphere of life.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you bring your strengths and weaknesses, Tri-C will build you up. If you participate in school activities, you will be encouraged and strengthened with support. It's also affordable, so you've got freedom to discover your direction. There are mentor programs, transfer programs. There are student activities like clubs, success week, leadership development sessions. There is an honors program. There is a chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (not a sorority or fraternity) on almost every campus of Tri-C. {You will be invited to be in Phi Theta Kappa if you reach a 3.5 cumulative GPA and have twelve 1000 level credits. You can learn more about Phi Theta Kappa on their website www.ptk.org} I highly suggest looking around Tri-C.edu for clubs and the Honors Program.

    Tri-C puts the community in community college. It is truly a place of higher learning. I will always remember the love at Tri-C.

    It depends on what fun is for you. I like to study, and it is a real fun for me, even if I may sound like a nerd. )) So I can go to dance classes or learn how to play a guitar or go to the ocean in summer and study creatures living in the water.

    Excellent. There are several parking lots on campus (I go to the Western one), and there is one police officer in the parking lot. There are several there inside the campus that help with everything, even help the student out to where they need to go...especcially helpful on the first day of class.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many activities that take place randomly. They use 'MySpace' as a way to connect with students to let them know what is going on on campus and what clubs are available in your area of study.

    Great for these types of students

    All types of students who are starting out, coming back, or want to continue their education and build up careers.

    Personally, I am very pleased. This Summer, I had a family emergency that took me out of state and my teacher was willing to work with me through Skype so that the last 3 weeks of my class would not be missed and I would not have to take an 'Incomplete' for my grade.

    What to do for fun

    There are special events that take place at the school all the time. I was pleasantly surprised when I went to visit the Math Tutoring Area that they had a 'Success Through Tutoring' luncheon for the students with questions.

    Gave 5 star rating because I have no idea what the dorm life is like here. I live off campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The course I just finished was intense due to the length of time we had to cover the amount of material required. The professors will go out of your way to make sure you know the material. If you apply yourself, it is easy to walk away with a great academic record.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you've previously attended a university, it is NOT the same. I think in some cases it is easier because the professors have a learning mentality rather than the research mentality. If you're coming from high school - I'm not much help to you there. It's been more than a decade since I graduated. Hmmm...I do have one more tip not related to the school. If you are parking on the streets along the main campus (downtown campus), beware of where you park. City of Cleveland police will happily write you a $25 ticket for parking on the streets alongside the school between 4 and 6.

    I took classes at a 4 year institution and I find the material at Tri-C to be just as challenging.

My Life Span Development Professor had a Ph.D in her field of study and is actively involved in research, so you can be sure you are getting a good education.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are having trouble getting something done, it is usually better to just go up to the school rather than sitting on the phone. I was given wrong information on several occasions by the representatives answering the phone.

    In three sentences

    Tri-C is a great place for adult returning students, or students who prefer smaller class sizes. The teachers really care about your success and will go above and beyond to help you if you are struggling in a particular subject. The admissions and enrollment process can be time-consuming and it sometimes seems as though the staff do not communicate with each other.

    Tips for prospective students

    You want to register your classes as soon as possible because the good classes fill up quick, fast and in a hurry. If possible I recommend registering the very first day classes are available. If you need academic counseling you'll want to get that done very early as well before classes start. It's best to get everything squared away weeks before the semester starts because things are usually very hectic the first few weeks. And if you're a morning person its best to take classes early to avoid the afternoon crowd, especially if you're taking the bus.

    In three sentences

    Cuyahoga Community College or Tri-c, is a good starter college. Inexpensive with flexible hours and friendly enough staff it's a great place to take your prerequisites before transferring to a four year college or to get an associates degree. If you're not sure what degree you'd like to pursue Tri-c is a great place to explore your options.

    Academic Rigor

    It's a two-year community college, so I can't say the academic environment is particularly rigorous- but the school is well-respected by local transfer colleges and there is an excellent honors program which provides ambitious students with great hands-on research opportunities. It is really unusual to be able to do research in your freshman and sophomore years of college- take advantage of it!

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask your teachers for information on how to get involved in anything you are interested in. It's amazing how much there is to do. Join clubs and visit the Student Life office to get involved.

    In three sentences

    You will get out of this school what you put in. There are opportunities everywhere on campus but you have to find them. Don't rule out transferring to an excellent school from here; you don't just have to go to Cleveland State (which is a great school too) as your transfer school.

    Tri-c does have some organizations. I would advise if you are a freshman to attend organizations and various activities that go on at the campuses. I recently attended a health seminar and it was very entertaining. Outside of the college, there are movies, malls, stores, mini golf, and much more just with 15 minutes away.

    Food and Dining

    Tri-c's cafeteria is very good. They have a good variety and decent prices.

    Dorm Life

    Seeing as Cuyahoga Community College is a community college there is no dorm life. Most students live on their own or more commonly with their parents.

    Academic Rigor

    At Cuyahoga Community College I have had mixed academic levels. My science classes were always pretty competitive and the academics were in unison with the university level however, there were some classes that were bird classes. I flew threw them without even studying and achieved my A. The teachers love their extra credit at tri-c so, that is a plus if you are struggling with your grade.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should get their financial aid figured out early as well as take their placement tests early. Also, if the stident feels like they should have placed higher go to a department head and talk to them they will work with you to get you where you need to be. Last but not least... Study and have fun!

    In three sentences

    Cuyahoga Community College is a very good school to start out in and working adults or parents. Financial Aid offices and or any department heads are tricky to get ahold of. Overall, Tri-c is a good school for all the money one is saving.

In addition, Cuyahoga Community college has transfer agreements with a multitude of 4-year universities in the Northeast Ohio region.

    Food and Dining

    I have not yet visited the cafeteria, but there is a dining area in the student center located near the bookstore.

    Dorm Life

    There is no on-campus residence.

    Academic Rigor

    I haven't begun my classes yet so I can't accurately evaluate how challenging the curriculum is. It is a community college so they accomodate students at all learning levels, from recent high school graduates with honors, to adult learners who are returning to school after working full-time for many years. They offer free tutoring as well!

    Tips for prospective students

    I would recommend buying textbooks online rather than in the bookstore as you can find them cheaper used. I would also recommend going to the school in-person if you need assistance, it can be a little difficult getting things accomplished over the phone.

    In three sentences

    Tri-C has the cheapest tuition in the state and is well-known for their RN (ADN) program. They move very fast on processing financial aid awards, and the counselors are extremely helpful!

    Clubs and Activities

    I was not involved in any club or acitivites when I was a student at CCC.

    Great for these types of students

    CCC is an excellent school for any and every body.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I am not aware of any unusual traditionns or locations on CCC's campuses.

    Bang for the buck

    Because CCC is a junior college, tuition fees are not as expensive as a university; and when I was a student, I learned from the best instructors anywhere. CCC has 3 major campuses along w/ satellite sites throughout the city which makes it a more valuable investment for students.

    What to do for fun

    CCC has a lot of fun activities open to the public, as well as opportunities for students to enhance their world perspective.

    Food and Dining

    I seldom purchased any food from CCC.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm Life does not apply to CCC.

    Made to go to school by mom and dad but, have no desire to get an education.

    Bang for the buck

    There's nothing exciting to tell about Tri-C except that the people in charge are more worried about money than making sure that their students are receiving a great education. Maybe if they actually took the time to acknowledge the needs the students they would have less financial worries. Word of mouth is a powerful thing especially with today's social media. I can guarantee you that there is not a student out there that will brag about the wonderful opportunities at Tri-C Community College. I will never recommend this school to any student as an excellent choice to receive an education.

    What to do for fun

    Read, bake, cook and create recipes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take an english class with Professor Hurst. She's a wonderful woman, and an amazing teacher. She'll challenge you, but it's worth it. Make sure you budget your time wisely; if you take online classes, don't forget about deadlines like I frequently have. Don't rely on the Wifi here to do anything because it's horrible.

    Tri-C isn't the greatest school, but you get what you pay for. There are some teachers that shouldn't be allowed to teach, but others that are like diamonds in the rough. The Wifi is horrible, so if you're planning to do any online homework, plan to do it at home.

    in my honest opinion, it doesn't get any better than this when it comes to a low cost highly functional and facilitated college with outstanding academic accreditation.

    What to do for fun

    there are plenty of lounge areas throughout the campus where you can just relax in between classes with your friends. also, the college gets really creative with activities, musical events, theatrical events hosted by various clubs. there's always the gym, pool and dance classes which are fun too!

    Food and Dining

    you will find a cafeteria at all of the main campuses, however the corporate campuses usually just have a cafe' with beverages and snacks. in my opinion, its kind of pricey, but its nice to be able to get a decent cup of coffee if you're taking on a night class!

    Academic Rigor

    tri-c, like any other university or college follows a certain criteria of curriculum which allows courses taken to be transferred to 4-year universities. this means that you should expect to put in just as much effort if not more in your courses, especially if you are attending a 14 week session which is more fast paced and condensed. it isn't a walk in the park, but where there's a will there's... the tutoring center.

    Tips for prospective students

    my advice to any student considering tri-c would be to take advantage of the resources provided such as the tutoring centers, laboratories, the counselors, the academic advisers, and the many other amenities this college provides to ensure your success as a member of their alumni. another crucial piece of advice would be to see a counselor prior to registering. take the time to discuss your future, and map out an educational timeline and do your best to stick with it. this will help you achieve your goal in a timely organized manner whilst avoiding wasted credit hours put forth on your behalf. good luck!

    In three sentences

    tri-c has been my window to a great educational experience and is staffed with highly devoted educators and faculty members. i have never once during my experience at tri-c felt as if i was offered anything less in a sense of education quality and availability/accessibility of educational resources provided to enhance my learning than i would have been at any other university. i don't doubt that this college will continue to flourish and expand its already wide range of opportunity for the young, the old and the unemployed.

    Not only is a community college great to use a stepping stone to a bachelor's degree, it also offers associate degrees needed for many fields of work. It will definitely improve your ability to obtain a good paying job.

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice to prospective students is they should investigate going to a community college to satisfy their basic core requirements and then transfer to a four year college where they can concentrate on their major and subsequently receive their bachelor's degree.

    Bang for the buck

    I am extremely satisfied with the quality of education I am receiving compared to the dollars being spent. If I were going to a private school I would be paying up to ten times more money that would create a financial hardship when I would have to start repaying the loans that I would have to get. I am happy to be at Cuyahoga Community College and value the education that I am receiving.

    It's good for people trying to get into a specific program like nursing, but the waiting lists for programs like that are extremely long and can be a wait of up to 3 or even 4 years. Also, it's a decent option for someone who doesn't know what they want to go to school for (like myself) and wants to just knock out general education classes at more than half the cost you would pay at a university. All and all I hated it and more often than not thought it was a waste of time and money for the bare minimum of quality.

    Tips for prospective students

    Avoid taking online classes. The online classes can two ways where they are so easy it's a waste of money, or they expect way too much of you while offering little guidance if any. I've taken four online classes and the history ones are always the hardest and I'm not sure why. (I am a history nut, so this is pretty bad for me) My history classes basically gave you the book and expected you to guess what was on the quizzes and tests with no study guides, no notes, nothing. The chapters are very long and what's on the quizzes and tests can be really anything, from dates, whether this person is the cousin of another person. It's insane sometimes.

    Bang for the buck

    As I've said you get what you pay for. It seems like they try to get the bare minimum. I learned way more and got so much more out of my years in high school than I did at Tri-C. It's a decent place to go when you don't know what to do for a career because you can knock general education classes paying a lot less than what you would at a university.

    Am enjoying being here

    I personally hated it here and I am so glad I am transferring out. The guidance counselors were of zero help to me (if the info is not on the computer they don't know anything even though it's their job to give me some sort of information). I saw three counselors; one was just guessing and all her information turned out to be wrong, another I was telling her information because unlike her I actually went on the school website and read everything and the last told me nothing and was very condescending. Most of the teachers are a joke, they seem to be decent people, but rarely do you find one that is actually good at teaching.

    Am learning a lot

    This school is very cheap and to be honest you get what you pay for. There are very few good teachers, but most either just don't care or expect way to much of you. I do not recommend taking their online classes. Those classes can either be extremely difficult (as in the teachers expect way to much and give you no guidance whatsoever), or they are way to easy to the point that it's a waste of money since you're not learning anything.
