I believe one of the most unique things about my school is that nobody comes off so judgmental. I go to school wearing sweats everyday and no bats an eye at it. I have seen some universities and young adults are only there to look at the eye candy that is available when at TMCC the young adults or older adults are there to learn and get there money's worth of an education. Everybody becomes friends with everybody, doesn't matter what classes your taking, or who you dress or even how you look. People judge by the vibe you give off and the personality you bring to the table. This coming up semester I will be attending more in class type classes so I will see how the campus life is and how the food is during breakfast and lunch! Overall I am happy with where I am. College is making me broke but in the end when I graduate one day, I will be thankful that I have worked hard for what I have accomplished and the friends I have met through attending this community college.

I chose to enroll in online courses during the winter because I was nervous about commuting in the snow. Contrary to popular belief, online courses are not easier than traditional courses! It was still a challenge for me to regularly remember to log-in and keep up to date with all the assignments, as well as dedicate my time without constant interruptions. Other times, I thought it would have been a good idea to join the traditional classroom environment for the sake of having the professor there to answer my questions right away.

My Own College Experience – I think I went into college thinking it would be very hard. Homework would be endless hours of studying and teachers who didn't really care. But at TMCC this was not true at all. I have loved most the teachers I have had there. They were easy to talk to and were encouraging when I need it. One Professor, Sharon Lowe, is one my favorites. She loves teaching about history and she makes it fun! Also I really like that picking classes is so easy online. I can just search for what I am looking and it pops up. Sometimes the classes are filled but then it gives me a chance to take a different class. The worklaod is not to crazy either. Most teachers understand, that we do more than just go to school.
