4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are many helpful tools, along with staff and falculty making every process as simple as possible.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There is quite a selection of classes at Tunxis, so there is always something that will interest you. In addition, all of the teachers I have personally had are teachers at other colleges in CT. I have had teachers that in addition to teaching at Tunxis also teach at CCSU, UConn and others!

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors are always involved with the students but only if the student comes up to the teacher. What do you expect? It is college.. The class registration only takes 24 hours. The curriculum varies. Anything from Art study, Music, to Dental and Medical Assisting.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The reason I give Tunxis a B- is because I know that they do they best that they can to provide the best for students to overcome their goals and aspirations but at the same time, they're not an Ivy League school either. I think Tunxis Community College has a lot to offer rather than the other community colleges around the area. Tunxis offers a variety of courses and certificate classes that you can take in about 2 to 3 months. The staff there is great but they do mean business. Tunxis Community College will not let you down. The major that I'm looking forward to graduating with is Business Office Technology. The professors push you hard to earn the grade you deserve and feel good doing it at the same time.
