I have had a great experience with TCL. Everything has been absolutely wonderful. The professors are great! The classes are affordable, and there is plenty of diversity.

Its a great school for most people in my area that can't afford a 4 year university's tuition. Personally, I plan on transferring to the University of South Carolina-Columbia after my first 2 semesters (Spring & Summer). Since TCL has a transfer agreement with USC-Columbia, most young people, such as myself, transfer after the first year. TCL has alot of great campus activities such as, PILAU, that help you with the college experience and transfer experience.

I'm majoring in Industrial Electronics Technology, and my classes are a combination general education/electives, electronics courses, and information technology courses. Class scheduling has been pretty straightforward, but some of classes are offered only during the summer. That puts a lot of students like me in a bind because I prefer to work during that time without having to worry about classes.
