i remember a lot of my fellow high school friends looking down at this community college because it wasn't those big universities but i can honestly say this is a great school. this school not only has great programs like their nursing one but because it's local, it helps a lot of fresh high schoolers who don't know what they want to major in yet and cope with the transition from real . i've attended this college for almost two years now and i highly recommend this college because it's a great school.

Three Rivers is a great option for anyone looking to save money before transferring to a four-year university. There are tons of opportunities to get involved with, and just as many people to talk to about your educational and vocational future. It is popular among all generations, which is great because you're able to communicate with people with first-hand experiences.
