Am learning a lot
All of my classes provide me lots of supportive information. I learned how to manage time and finish project on time. It's not about who's smarter, it's about timing and follow instruction.
Am enjoying being here
I definitely like the physical education facilities over there, have chance to workout and enjoy the deepness of swimming pool. Most of my friends go there, so I'm really satisfied with this year.
Bang for the buck
It is way cheaper than university, pell grant is enough for me to pay for tuition, books, and even new clothes for college.
Tips for prospective students
Remember to make friend, cause in college anyone can have what you don't, so be active and friendly.
Great for these types of students
It'll be heaven for students who are hard-working, friendly, respectful.

Did learn a lot
The teachers there love what they are doing. They challenge their students to do their best. I have gotten interested in different areas that I never thought about before because of the professors.
Did enjoy being here
The classes are small so the teachers are easier to reach and more available to help you one on one. The library has a lot of resources and the librarians are eager to help you in whatever they can.
Bang for the buck
This school is a lot cheaper then universities but it still offers a high quality education. We learn for the same books that higher priced places use without having to empty our wallets
Tips for prospective students
Show up to class, do your homework, become familiar with your teachers, and you are bound to succeed
Great for these types of students
Students who are fresh out of high school and want to get a feel for college before moving to a four year university.
Students who don't have a lot of money but still want to get a degree
Students who want to stay close to home.

Am learning a lot
I cannot believe how interested my teachers have me in their classes. I used to hate government in high school and now it's my favorite class! The learning is on a deeper level, it's not just about memorizing facts anymore. The work keeps me challenged and I know I will be prepared when I transfer to a 4 year university.
Am enjoying being here
I thought I wasn't going to like it, I will admit. But, I actually look forward to class everyday. It's small enough to make new friends (which is always good) but still bigger than high school so you'll probably see a new face everyday. Some of the teachers are fantastic! They will truly care about you and aren't just there getting a paycheck. It's located near a lot of different restaurants and I enjoy all the activities that TCC has to offer.
Bang for the buck
You are paying way less for the same basic courses that other students are taking at 4-year universities.
Tips for prospective students
Don't feel bad or embarrassed that you are starting off at a community college, like I did. It really is an excellent way to see how different college is from high school and gives you a great opportunity to learn more about what you have to do to succeed in college. Go to class, read instructions carefully, and make the most of it(:
Great for these types of students
-Anybody who wants to save money on your basics
-Those who just aren't ready to leave home yet
-For those who don't know if traditional colleges are right for them

Am learning a lot
if you like smaller classrooms where you and the teacher can communicate on a regular basis, then this is the school for you. it was really easy for me to get help when i needed it right away from the teacher.
Am enjoying being here
there's not so many distractions of having too many students. if sometimes you don;t like people to be around so you can concentrate a lot more on your work, Defiantly TCC is the place to be.
Bang for the buck
alot cheaper. i didn't pay as much as i would have going to a university. And as an undergrad student, it's best if you REALLY do your best not to have debts and loans.
Tips for prospective students
you know when you are fresh from high school, just turned legal meaning 18, and you think that you can run the show by yourself, believe me you can, but you can run it better when you have those who know what the road is like help you run your show. basically, i stayed home and went to a small school, yes i had my little freedom, parents are on my case still but not as much. this is good because, with them on my case, it helped me get back on track when i slacked off and they saw progress also.
Great for these types of students
just out of high school.
want that freedom and assuring your parents or guardians that you can do it. this is the time to let them stay back and watch you start on this path for college life.
you want to save money.
need that one on one with the teacher
someone your type.

Am learning a lot
Although Tarrant County College is just a community college it offers classes that have a more rigorous course load like that of one in a major university. I am glad I came to this school before transferring out to a larger university because I feel more prepared and am ready for anything.
Am enjoying being here
I love the atmosphere of this college all the teachers are very laid back and are there to teach the students who are willing to learn. I also really liked the fact that it is really easy to meet people there because the class are relatively small in size so it is very easy to talk and make friends with each other.
Bang for the buck
Tarrant County College is very cheap. This is a great school for anyone who is on a budget and also looking for a good quality education. Also I recommend this school for almost everyone because you can transfer almost all your credits to any university.
Tips for prospective students
Everyone should check to make sure they are on the right path to transferring to another university, if that is what they choose to do. Make sure that all your class are transferable and are class you should actually be taking for your declared major.
Great for these types of students
TCC is a great school for single parents like myself. It is easy to apply and easy to get into. This school is very flexible with there class schedule and offers a wide variety of online classes so if you don't have the time to drive to school you can still sit down and take a class or two at home. This school is also great for students who don't quite know what they want to do yet. You can take classes and figure out what you like, and then decide your major from there.

When I first contemplated attending Tarrant County College, I was influenced by university students' negative comments about community colleges. With that retrospect, I registered for classes last fall. To my surprise, the professors at TCC were helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. Though they had doctorate degrees, they did not treat you like an average dumb student. Although TCC is not a major university, they still have many student organizations and a few Honor Societies. Community College students do need to get involved on their campuses, it helps the major universities get to know who they are; grades are just as important too! Attending a community college is a great way to prove to a four year university that you are serious and focused on your college education. Attend every class, make good grades, and become acquainted with your professors, you will need letters of recommendation. Tarrant County College is a place where people of all ages can come together and learn, do not be persuaded by others not to attend, it is a very good step towards finishing your degree at a major university!
Am enjoying being here
I love being able to come on campus for class then leave in my own car and go wherever I wish.
Bang for the buck
TCC's tuition is very affordable! They make paying tuition a breeze by offering scholarships, loans, and payment options.
Tips for prospective students
Get involved on campus, though it seems difficult. Join a club or Honor Society or start your own club. Do not be ashamed for being a student at a community college, in the end you will not have near as many student loans as the other four year university grads!
Great for these types of students
TCC is great for students who prefer living at home while attending college or students that have families to raise and jobs to work. TCC is another tract that students can take in finishing their degrees, TCC offers so many different class times and locations, making it easier for busy students.
