4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The student resources at Durham Tech are very organized and well thought out. Most times I feel as if I'm being treated as a human being. However, at the start of the school year, the Financial aid department front office worker, was very rude and disrespectful to her guest and current students. Many people were upset.

They're no athletic centers or programs from what I have seen. They do have clubs for certain sports, but no full out Athletic department like what some bigger universities have. I think it would be more than a blessing to have an Athletic department at one the most oldest community colleges around. It would also help more students stay focused on their school work. They do have an Eagle Connect program where Durham Tech students can stay in dorms if they are transferring to the school. Which is something that I am deeply considering for the Fall Term.

The libraries are very helpful and they even have study rooms for those who want to study in a more quitter and peaceful area. The campus activities include a club day. That is the only campus activity that I have seen them offer from the short time I was there.

The overall school has wonderful Major program. Though we don't have many amenities such as sports, school parties, and other things that universities would offer, they have wonderful programs where almost anyone can feel welcomed and feel as if they will accomplish something from being there. I love my school to the fullest. As said before, with some added amenities, like a sports department, as well as housing options for those who do not wish to attend NCCU, it would be a more well wounded school.

Online Courses: The online class I took allowed me to move at my own pace but if it wasn't for the fact that I had an in class lab every week, I doubt that I would have ever communicated with my peers. The professor was always available and very helpful but the class was very 'teach yourself everything'

College Freshman

Career Services: There is no real career center at my school because most people are there to get pre-requisites for their job or degree or they are working on a career path. the majority of students know what they want to do already and are just following their plans of study.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: If a student wants to they can plan all of their classes on two or three days and be done by noon each day. I made sure that I didn't have Friday classes and that my classes wouldn't interfere with my work schedule.

Academic Experience: I took a full course load (18 credits) while working a part time job and maintained a 3.83 GPA and a social life so I think that it is very possible to do well if you work hard. There are posting about jobs and internships on the schools website but most students do not know about it because it is not advertised.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Some of the staff openly state their dislike of the school or their teaching position which I personally believe is bad for the school. The school is very career or transfer driven so the majority of students like to get in and get out. Class registration is a hassle so it is important tot start on time because problems will occur.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think that I am receiving a good education for the tuition I paid. The financial aid office is at times useless.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: The school is quite diverse and everyone fits into multiple groups of people. The student body is very accepting and protective of other students who attend. The middle college students are at times looked down upon because they are seen as immature but over all there is no tension.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: There are no athletic centers on campus and the activities are scarce and ill planned. That being said, it is a comfortable campus with lots of room to work.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The value of a degree of a school is high and can be higher.

Campus Resources: The only thing missing is athletic centers. This school doesn't really have athletics.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Sometimes online classes tend to get dull much quicker than being in a classroom.

Academic Experience: The teachers are great. Durham Tech is connected with C-Step, making them connected with UNC.

Academic Experience: I am very afraid that I will not be prepared to sit for the exam to become a certified paralegal. One semester, a teacher covered only 3 chapters the entire semester!

2 College Senior

Academic Experience: My statement above says it best!

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I was ill-advised on my financial aid, which caused me to owe the school $700.00 and I am unable to receive an unofficial copy of my transcript until it is paid. It is a big burden, as I would rather transfer schools, I am unable to without the transcript.

4 College Senior

Student Body: My school is diverse in every way. At a community college, all of the students have faced or are facing life challenges, and I would classify them as a strong group of "believers".

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have had an online instructor in the past who got a little TOO creative with her assignments, and it left me opening up tab after tab, and going on a hunt for assignments and attachments to assignments. I dropped that class! I have had other teachers however who are very straightforward, and make the assignments easily accessible, and predictable. I think predictability is important with an online course, as a set schedule is the easiest way for me to foresee that I have arranged my time to be able to complete the assignments each week.

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: There are not enough teachers to teach in the Paralegal Program. As a result, many of the classes have only one option with which to create a class schedule, and night classes for example, aren't the easiest for me to take because I have children. This coming semester, I HAVE to take two night classes, because it is the only time offered and has been since I started the program. This leave me with NO flexibility or options.

4 College Senior

Career Services: The university transfer and C-Step programs are set up nicely.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: Paper work is often missing. I had to start school an entire semester later than I had planned because the school "forgot" to provide me with some of the paperwork in time for me to meet the deadline. The advisers are swammped, and don't really help with informing students about their career options and classes.
