1 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Trenton has one of the highest murder rates in America, alongside Camden, Newark, Detroit and Miami. There is no atmosphere, everyone is afraid to go into Trenton at night. I have tried to start get togethers and clubs , but it is impossible since the students are from all over the country . There are no sports, so no opportunity for sports scholarships. I asked if the college could start internships, but was told that majority of the students are already working. Maybe what I am saying is that I regret wasting my money at this college.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Too Much Computer and Not Enough Face – TESC is online academia. While the people you can speak to by phone are very nice, there is a heavy dependency on everything being online. However, seeing everything on their website is a full-time job unto itself. I find it overwhelming and a little indifferent to my face time needs.

College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Don't Know – I'm enrolled in TESC strictly for the online program and have never been to the campus
