5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: This institution is generally overlooked by people by believing that community colleges are not as good as universities, but it is all a lie. Community colleges, more specifically Durham Tech, gives opportunities to all students that are taking courses with no discrimination who they are or their background.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I can honestly say that the online courses that I have taken at this institution are excellent. The quality of the coursework is as great as coursework taught in classrooms. Professors are always answering e-mails with questions from students.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Students are offered opportunities even when have already graduated with a degree, which makes it easier for them to create a future for themselves in an environment that they already know.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Courses that are offered at this institution vary from professors to the styles that are being used. The way that a professor teaches depends on the course that is being taught. Most courses are competitive and they will push students to do their best.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Students who are being brought into this institution are not only offered to learn from classes, but they are also offered different groups and clubs that they are interested in.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I believe that the courses I have taken in this college that pertain to my career of Business Management are as competitive as other courses in universities. They have taught me skills that will be used when I graduate from a 4-year university.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I strongly believe that this community college provided opportunities for students who strive for a better future. If I had to choose this experience I would do it over. This school has taught me interpersonal skills that are used in an everyday life. I am who I am, thanks to the professors who have pushed me to do my best.

Academic Experience: I'm planning on entering the computer programming field, with aspirations to get into video game development and design.

I feel that DTCC will get me in the door with the skills I need for an entry-level position, with the opportunity to come back for any other training that I may need in the future.

The classes are competitive, and cover most everything you need.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: So far the teachers have been helpful and the classes are just what you need to get started in your field. It's a great school for the money!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique is that we are very welcomed orientated. We like to treat everyone like family and we accept any one and everyone for who they are regardless of race or sexuality. Cedar Ridge doesn't discriminate.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone will have their own opinion. As long as you research your professors before you sign up for their class, you should be okay. Researching your professors will determine how much work you're going to have. There are clubs on campus, not too many, but there are some.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They made it easy not only to be part of the school but to enroll in classes.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I am able to get my classes and everything is very organized. Also, the teachers are great and not only that, you can save a lot of money when it comes to taking classes and transferring than taking classes in the university.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Durham Tech has numerous resources on campus for students to use, including but not limited to a library, computer labs, student study areas, city bus stops, free tutoring services, a financial aid office, a police department, and a bookstore. The campus resources are not the best, but they are helpful when it comes to getting work done.

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'

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

4 College Senior

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.
