3 College Freshman

Online Courses: shows up to school everyday. completes all homework assignments. & in class assignments

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: There is plenty of flexibility, for work and family time.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is paid by financial aid, so I don't have any headaches. I can just focus on class work.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: The facilities are fine. The library is nice. A few of the buildings have been redone or are new. I don't know about amenities like a gym, auditorium, etc. But the classes are fine and that's why I'm there.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: The online classes I have taken have been difficult but meaningful. The instructors are involved and really take advantage of various ways to be online - Meeting rooms, Skype, YouTube, email, etc. Every online class, for me, has also included mandatory interaction with other students. For example, part of our assignment is that we read and comment on what other students submit. One important thing to know is that, at least in my experience, there is an expectation that you can be on campus at least once during the semester...sometimes more than that.

Academic Flexibility: There is not much flexibility. The advising process is frustrating and not very effective. Also, communication on the administrative level is awful. It is difficult to find someone who has enough information and the authority to make a decision.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: While the professors and curriculum are not likely to be considered international grade, you do get a good value for your money, and this is the absolute best option for students wishing to get their associates degree before transferring to a larger university.

If you plan on staying at a technical/community college for the whole degree (associates or even bachelors), then you may want to consider a better school.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors for the most part are a mixed bag. Most are quite good, though I do currently have a math professor that does nothing more than read the book, and do a few exercises on the board (often incorrectly which the class has to help correct). In this particular class, the instructor provides no more benefit than the actual book, and youtube videos on math are considerably more helpful and knowledgeable.

My other professors are for the most part good. Passionate about there subject matter, though often disorganized. Not the caliber of a larger and more prestigious university, but definitely adequate for an associates degree, and a great value if planning to transfer to a larger college.

Facilities are meager, though the library is adequate for most student needs.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Veterans Assistance counselor is the worst I've seen of any college so far. She says that she has been slammed by veterans and is likely overworked, though this could just be a completely fictitious reason to have not made any effort in determining the cause of my GI Bill issues.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: I havent been at the school long enough to make this determination

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I just feel my teacher should be alot more leiniant

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Im a transfer program student and they offer all of my basic credits. the facility cares about you and your work. they have many job opportunities, you just have to apply.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: the work at Durham technical community college is not hard if you study your work, like any college. the programs are geared to many careers.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: there are groups to join you just have to be willing to try them out. the are groups for gamers, runners and everything you can think.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: they have every thing you'll need to complete your path. the labs are clean and provide necessary tools for graduation

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The library is resourceful and well kept, The student center has employees that work fast so you are in and out.There is always something to do on campus.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: Im not very knowledgable about post grad services at my school. my school just seems to look at u like another #, u cant even check a book out from the library....

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: my school has a free application for financial aid. Im paying my tuition out of pocket. as, Im ineligible to receive aid at this time. I encourage everyone to apply for grants/ scholarships. the process for registering for classes, is not to my liking.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My schools tuition is excellent. I am on financial aid and if you want to have your financial aid in on time, plan accordingly. The process might take a while, but it is worth the wait. Not only am I eligible to be full-time but also work my way around with my personal schedule. I have learned that if you are honest 100% of the time with financial aid there would be no worries nor problems.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a university transfer student and the scheduling and choosing the correct class is a hassle. I had to start with development courses and work my way from there. The academic adviser assigned to you does not know any questions I have for them. For example, in order to transfer you have to take a require amount of classes, but what classes? Whenever I ask them, they simply state to research on my own, which I do not have a problem with, but why are they advising if they do not seem to know anything?

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors at my community college consist of masters and PHD degrees. Some of my past teachers have been excellent and brilliant in their subject of teaching. The reason why I score them so low is because their is no student/teacher relationship to build. They give a few minutes after class to help the students and some do not even have an office, therefore it makes it harder to get in contact with my professors. The beginning of the semester is always chaotic, not to mention the registration of your classes. They do not provide flexible class times.

3 College Junior

Student Body: At my school it is composed of mostly adults that have kids and want to improve in their careers.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: While it is great that we have a computer lab, I often find problems with them. The printers are not functioning properly or some computers are broken. It is also frustrating when I try to print something out in the computer lab, to avoid having to pay for each page, only to find out that there is a class in there. It would also be extremely helpful to be able to print out more than 10 pages per day. Last semester, I spent about $100 total in ink for my one class. Every few weeks, I had to print a stack of at least 50 pages that included around 100 power point slides. By the end of the semester, I had to two 3 inch binders stuffed with power point slides that I printed out throughout the semester. It would definitely be beneficial to up the number of pages per day that students are allowed to print out.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have received financial aid, which makes attending college affordable for me. I am so very grateful for this!

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Overall, my experience with the professors at this college have been excellent. I enjoy how they seem to have a genuine desire to get to know their students personally and not just as another student. Most professors I have experienced are firm, but fair at the same time. I have had one horrible experience with a professor here. This particular professor deemed it appropriate to make inappropriate sexual innuendos which made females in the class extremely uncomfortable to say the least. He also frequently complained about how he hated his job, didn't get paid enough,etc.
