4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would chose this school again. If I had to do it over I would have gone straight to this school and not the first school I went to.

3 College Junior

Student Body: I have two people that I talk to and that is in class. There are not very many clubs or other extra curricular activities, which I was there was.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Although, not everything is not perfect, I have enjoyed my time here and am almost sad to be moving on.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Compared to the other community college I went too there is not as much of this going on as the other one had.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It is always a challenge at any school I feel like to schedule classes that work perfectly. Some times I do really well, other times not so much.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I have taken 3 online classes now. 1 was very successful, the other 2 were as successful.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I am actually not to sure of these different programs offered at my school.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I really like my major! Truckee Meadows is one of the few community colleges that has such a well put together program for Elementary education.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Truckee Meadows has many different classes to chose from! That part is awesome.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: There were a few classes I've taken here that I do not feel like I got my money's worth. As far as dealing with the financial aid office at my school I have been told different things from workers in the office. Every one is super nice, but yet there seems to be some confusion in the office.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I really like how small the campus is but yet there are so many classes to chose from. I do wish there were more school clubs or activities to be apart of.

3 College Junior

Career Services: There's a lot of "career services" but our area doesn't have much to offer outside commission sales and logistics/warehousing

2 College Junior

Student Body: The students are typically older, family persons. Any younger students are there because they either can't afford to go to a University, or because they can't get the grades to go. Either way, there's no school spirit and there's no sense of community with fellow students.

1 College Junior

Online Courses: Instructors take a "set it and forget it" mindset, and usually don't respond to inquires in any form of reasonable time. The loads are obscenely heavy and assignments usually aren't clearly laid out, not to mention being difficult to submit

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The administration can be flexible, but the instructors typically aren't (except in the Criminal Justice department, they're pretty good about stuff).

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The teachers are part-timers, and most act as such. The administration doesn't seem to care about students, there are few student groups, and no school spirit. It's just being a member of the herd, and the financial aid office will not answer any questions you have. If you want financial aid here, find a job in the city.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Well if you qualify, it is fairly simple. If you are surprised like I was about not qualifying after a couple semesters, its a major blow. A letter, or an email update on your situation would eliminate these unexpected setbacks.

Academic Experience: The Dietetics program provides a wide array of opportunities for grads who become RD's. Be prepared for lots of science and labs.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I feel like there are a wide variety of programs offered and TMC accommodates those who wish to transfer as well as Associate programs. Some professors just shouldn't teach and I recommend visiting RateMyProfessor.com, relatively accurate ratings from students. Registration is pretty simple, financial aid can be...but they aren't on top of everything and with it being such a confusing process, it would be nice to have a little more personal help.

Career Services: Best people to talk to about transferring to another school are the advisors at the school you wish to attend

Overall Experience: All schools have ups and downs, I look at TMCC as my stepping stone. It's only temporary.

2 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: First of all, I understand there are Federal regulations which TMCC must follow in regards to Financial Aid, the big issue is that they DO NOT inform you ahead of time if there are any financial aid issues. The transfer credit evals are quick...but the issue with that is they miss things they should be giving you credit for. You really need to be prepared to argue with them regarding the transfer credits you deserve.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: I have found that with my online classes a lot more reading is assigned, but the classes are consistent and I know exactly when I have assignments due. Most professors are readily available and get back to you quickly. I do a combination of online and in person classes and find the variety refreshing.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: There are a few groups on campus, but I believe a lot of student are very busy with working and family and need to get classes done and take care of business outside of school. I have never witnessed or experienced any type of discrimination.

Campus Resources: Compared to other CC's and Universities I have attended, the resource are pretty decent. The computer labs are great and the second floor in the library provides relative silence.
