Online Courses: Online courses at Thomas Nelson are an excellent experience. Most of the work is done on blackboard which is already a requirement of every student to uses for their academic organization. We had discussion boards about case studies done on titans of the business world and it was interesting to see the opinions of my fellow classmates. I enjoyed my online course at Thomas Nelson.

Academic Flexibility: Unfortunately the program leader is on the way out the door so the class times are horrible for anyone who has a regular nine to five job. There are only so many spots in the night classes and not enough instructors willing to teach at night, so therein lies the problem. Some students get locked out of classes they need for their degree and end up having to wait another semester to complete the required classes.

Career Services: The post-grad services at my school are typical of what you would expect on a college campus. We have job fairs every semester where the students are exposed to companies that hire entry level college graduates. The alumni network in the area is strong and many people in the area attended Thomas Nelson at one time or another.

Overall Experience: I feel Thomas Nelson is the same as any other college in America. Some of the courses are not as exciting as others, and some instructors are not as likeable as other instructors. There is a wide variety of courses offered and a wide range of class times which does tend to make it easy to get all of the classes you want and not have to sacrifice too much personal time. Another thing that makes Thomas Nelson great is the class size. Most classes are around 22 students so there is a lot of personal interaction with the instructors which helps students who require a more personal touch. I feel my experience at Thomas Nelson has been wonderful so far and would recommend it to anyone looking to further their education.

Overall Experience: In my personal experience the career prospects from this school are very positive. I was offered a job by word of mouth from one of my instructors whom I impressed during my first semester in the HVAC-R program at Thomas Nelson. My current boss is a Thomas Nelson alumn and knows that I am receiving the most up to date education I possibly can to keep the company ahead of the industry.

Academic Experience: Being an HVAC-R student at Thomas Nelson is great. All of the instructors are extremely knowledgeable and up to date on the latest industry equipment. There are many training units in the classroom and the split between classroom and lab time is about 50/50. The workload is not terribly demanding however, if the basics of refrigeration and thermodynamics are not understood then failure is inevitable. Part of the associates degree requires a semester working in the field and there are companies in the area hiring people from the program every month. Overall I feel that being an HVAC-R major at Thomas Nelson Community College is a great experience.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would certainly choose Thomas Nelson Community College again to further my education. The instructors there care about the students and take the time and effort to make sure everyone gets a fair shot at succeeding in the course. The labs are full of the latest equipment and the instructors are knowledgeable about all knew industry technology. Overall I enjoyed my experience at Thomas Nelson Community College and would recommend it to anyone looking to further their education on the peninsula.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm glad I decided to come here before attending a 4-year university. The classes are worthwhile if you put in the time but don't expect to be spoon-fed.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of the teachers are pretty lenient and the coursework is light, I'd like to get more legitimate college professors.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: its really great if you want to get your gen ed classes out of the way.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This is a great school to start out at. I myself do plan on transferring and in the State of Virginia. Thomas Nelson is only funded 36% by the state and still they have excellent opportunities. Class sizes are smaller so the professors acutely know there students they are not just a name on a form to pass or fail.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a few really creepy guys here. Makes me wonder if the school does background checks because one guy I met was recently arrested for rape and I had a lot of trouble getting him to leave me alone without involving campus police.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Thomas Nelson Community College is a good community college as far as community colleges go. Last year, I studied at the HT campus and this year at the Hampton Campus. HT campus is definitely nicer but they offer fewer classes than the Hampton campus. They're both clean and well-taken care of. I generally always feel safe walking around the campuses both in the day and at night, and I have made quite a few really great friends. The professors are helpful. Don't underestimate the workload simply because this is a community college, though. It's a good transitioning school.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a good place to get your gen eds out of the way.
