College Freshman

Academic Experience: My degree program is not offered at the school I currently attend.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I have had the best teachings with certain teachers, therefore this rating is them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Typical Community College experience, but well worth joining clubs within.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: A student can aim higher with the right program and having people support them from behind. Students taking out time from their jobs or family and taking the initiative to learn something in school, study and test their knowledge is an effort to achieve the degree they seek in their selected school.

Online Courses: The first time I took an online course was last year in the spring. I thought it would be hard seeming how it was a two part itclass, lecture and lab. When taking a course in class, there are students that you can befriend immediately, talk to the teacher, ask questions, get help understanding the problem or assignment. A class on campus is more convenient and easier to relate because its more hands-on. Online, its completely different. A student will be independent and it may take days for a professor to reply back via email if the student is in need of aid. Interaction between students and the teacher can be followed up either by their school email or their black board's discussion board. From my experience, the workload is relatively similar to the traditional classroom experience, as long as the student follows up with the syllabus and the assignment schedule. As for registering for the class, just make sure you sign up early and lock in the course you want to take. There is a site for students to check out the professors that will be teaching them by the reviews of previous students. To say the least, online courses are also convenient when you have access to the computer and won't have to waste gas commuting to school.

Student Body: On the topic of diversity at TNCC, there are more black people than a vary of other ethnicity such as Asians, Mexicans or Europeans. Although each of the students are diligent when it comes to their studies. Often in the cafetaria, students would gather in groups and either study, converse with each other or just remain to themselves. TNCC have clubs and after school gatherings, several which have made a Christian group, anime group, art club, academic clubs and/ or attend field trips assigned by professors.

College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I did not receive financial aid during my first year of college that I have applied. I had to rely on my parents as my benefactors, taking and using their pocket money that they worked hard for so I could attend college. Now that I'm transferring to CNU, I have the opportunity to be eligible for financial aid.

College Senior

Career Services: I have not graduated yet with my associates, so I'm unable to answer this.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: In the beginning of my freshman year, I've aimed to complete my associates degree in teaching, however my back up plan was to aim higher in the medical field as a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA). Since both subjects were in the same degree, I thought I could knock two birds with one stone and it has been beneficial on my part. I remained full time throughout my three years at Thomas Nelson Community College and studied profusely to pass each and every prerequisite class on the list. The workload was equally difficult as any other class I've taken but it was just as interesting to learn new things I have never experienced before.

Academic Experience: Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) provides students the opportunity to get involved with events, clubs or organizations that would help them improve in their future careers. TNCC gives their current students a privilege to enroll into the next term a week before the general registration begins as a priority registration. Each course's curriculum frequently allows its tests to be cumulative, depending on the term and its the weather. At the end of each term, students would sometimes be either recommended or obligated to complete a survey of their professor and course they took that semester. In addition to TNCC's workload or special study options, there are students who take up tutoring or go for work studies and help other people to get around.

Campus Resources: I'm transferring from Thomas Nelson Community College to Christopher Newport University (CNU) in the fall. From my visit on CNU's campus, I have toured the grounds from building A to building Z, each building categorizing the department in which a student will be majoring in. CNU's library is bigger than it looks from the outside but the interior is just as fascinating; there's enough rooms for students to do their research, school assignments, studies for upcoming tests. CNU also has a separate building for its gym to allow students to exercise their mind and bodies, as a stress reliever and also, includes athletic clubs such as indoor basketball, dance, or track.

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility is amazing...they should have more teachers for certain courses though.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ive had an okay experience...The teachers are not that good but I'm very happy i do not have to go out of my way for a college education.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its great class size and amazing students, it is just the employers that really bring this school down.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A lot of students i know from Thomas Nelson have had no problems getting a job with their degree and it is very cost friendly.

5 College Freshman

Online Courses: Online classes are the best! Teachers are always very time oriented and understand if you are busy.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: Thomas Nelson is very diverse and everyone gets along great.

1 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Thomas Nelson has messed up my financial aid by failing to tell me that i needed to complete certain classes for pre-nursing. Therefore, i almost had to pay out of my pocket for classes rather than use my pell grant.

College Freshman

Career Services: I am not a post graduate just a transfer student, i have not graduated yet.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: i love the major, (as i am in my prerequisites), but it is very hard to apply for nursing school. The admissions tests are very hard and it takes a lot of time and effort.

1 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Thomas Nelson could have better teachers, a lot of people do not seem happy to teach there and that is an issue for me. This is why i am planning to transfer to Old Dominion University.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: None of the school workers like to do their job, but the students are amazing.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The vast selection of online classes provide a great amount of flexibility so I can work and continue to study and have a social life.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm somewhat indifferent about TNCC. The teachers are okay, but the student body does not feel connected with school pride and unity.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are very helpful and they want you to learn.
