The professors are amazing....always willing to help you if you need it. Classes are small enough that professors get to know their students names, personalities, strengths, weaknesses, etc. Small class size is one of my favorite things about Tri-County. We get to have regular class discussions because there are at most 25-30 in a class, not 150 like large universities. I get personal attention and hands on time with professors when needed!

I am currently working on my Associates in Science and it has been an interesting road I started out now knowing what i really wanted to do. So I began by joining their Cosmetology program, and i am not the proud owner of a local beauty salon. I feel I was more than prepared for work in my field and even was able to obtain clients after graduating. But this is not where my wonderful experience stopped; I continued on to join their Associates program. At first I was unsure what to really do beyond cosmetology, so my advisor suggested i take a test at the Student Center to see what my interests were. I decided on an Associates in Science because I knew I want to be in the medical field just not sure what. I was able to work at my own pace as I was managing a salon full time. So the workload is entirely up to up you!

I really enjoy the Library. It is a quiet place to study and there are a lot of great books available! The student center is very nice and well-kept, as well. All campus activities are enjoyable and well-announced. I enjoy my time on campus!
