4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Durham Tech may be a community college, but they have a high standard of academic quality. Most all of the professors I have had are very good at what they teach. Durham Tech also happens to be smack dab in the middle of the N.C. Research Triangle and is less than 25 miles from Duke University, UNC Chapel Hill, and N.C. State University. Last semester I had a chance to take a class at Durham Tech that was a collaborative effort between Durham Tech and Duke's school of Documentary Studies and taught by two of their professors. What an opportunity.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm a major in Electronics Engineering Technology. Most of the classes I'm taking are highly relevant to the career field that I'm pursing. The only class that's the oddball is College Transfer Success, which is a class which repeats what I was taught in high school. Best to do your work early and never turn in homework late.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The teachers at the school do make attempts to connect everything we learn to what's going in life. The school does a great job of helping students adjust their workload. The student to teacher ration is good for most classes and they have a large variety of social programs to keep students busy.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I want pre-med classes and they are just not available to me since I am a junior in high school and I am ready for them now.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I had a hard time getting the classes I needed or I was interested in so it was not always a positive experience. There were alot of road blocks since they though I was to young. I wish someone would have taken more time to help me on a personal level.
