tidewater community college is not respected by many high school seniors when they are applying for colleges and universities and i admit that one of those students was me. i am currently a student at tcc and i feel ashamed of the thoughts i had about this college. the professors are by far the best and nicest teachers that have ever taught me. even for the most difficult class, they are always willing to help. nice campus, great professors and just overall caring staffs and i'm so happy i applied because from here, i can always go anywhere.
