I have not graduated yet but it seems as if they are more then willing to help you find a job once you graduate or at least give you ideas on where to go. I think they would be more helpful in finding a college where you can go for a bachelor's then helping you find a job.

The students at Terra are relatively divided according to their majors. As a music major, I don't talk to, and really, barely even see students outside the music programs. Making friends within that limit, however, is rather easy, as the students already have similarities to build upon, with little regard for the diversity of the students. You know what they say, music brings people together.

The official career services attempt to blanket all the possible career outlets. While that's good to learn good habits like resume building and mock-interviews, it lacks the personal touch needed for each individual field. As a Music Major, I found much better career services in the music program itself, simply talking and networking with the faculty. The career services at Terra won't help you build your career like those who already have a similar career.

A program that Terra particularly excels in its Business and Liberal Arts division. The music faculty is experienced, intelligent, and friendly. The technology and resources are top-notch, noticeably so compared to the technology of the rest of the school. The curriculum is reasonable, students are encouraged in many ways to take more electives than one requires. With this school being a community college, almost all my classes are one-on-one, which allows me to go at my own pace. While I won't find out for sure how Terra compares to other schools until I transfer, I can guess that Terra has one of the best Music programs out there.

Terra State Community college is a unique experience. Its community aspect gives it a new set of pros and cons. The advantages of a community college are small class sizes, focused faculty, generally cheaper tuition, and flexible scheduling, and in most of these Terra excels in. Many of Terra's advertisements are rightfully boasted; the curriculum catalog, though relatively limited compared to larger colleges, provides a very helpful stepping stone for students who transfer to a larger college or university.
The small problems that sometimes arise can also be attributed to the small, local campus. One notable thing that I had trouble with was the registration process, which while it was tedious and tiresome, resulted in no lasting issues, and, in my opinion, a result of Terra acclimatizing to new technology, a problem that may go away within the next few years. Other issues some students might have is the lack of on-campus housing, limited student activities, and the limited curriculum. Again, these are all disadvantages associated with small colleges. Terra does well both because of and in spite of its size.

Taking online courses are great. They fit right into my schedule of picking my stepdaughter up from school and taking care of my family. It really makes going back to work a lot easier too. I love online courses.

I only took one class online but the instructor was good because he did videos explaining things and also detailed assignment expectations

I love terra because of being out of school for so long their instructors are very hands on and with the small class sizes teachers are not neglecting towards each student

I have had some difficulty getting some of my general studies classes transferring like math but everything other than math transferred ok.

The campus is pretty small but they offer a good size library and they have a recreation area that is also small.

They have a lot of functions on campus and they are not solely for the students they also allow the students to bring in their children and spouses to the events.

The computer labs on campus work most of the time. We have more problems with the printer than the computers.

My nursing instructors are always willing to go above and beyond to help us when we ask.
Recent Alumnus 2012-11-29T23:21:36Z
I believe the Nursing program is a good one. I feel that some of the "busy" work is overwhelming and could be put to better use by being able to study more.

Discussion Boards – I have taken several online classes at Terra and I have done extremely well, unlike other times at my previous college. I really like the fact that they do discussion boards so us as students can still get to know each other and feel free to ask questions when needed. It is very consistent and you get in a routine fast. You do have to manage your time, though, because from experience, they don't tolerate late work.

I really like how my classes are smaller classes and everyone is so close, it makes my education so much easier. The teachers really are there for you and go out of there way for you, along with the advisors. I also like the Kerns Center which is where I work out and take fitness classes to relieve some stress. The cafeteria is awesome as well with reasonable prices.

Helpful College – I live in the same city as Terra, Fremont, but was going to a Community
College in Toledo and commuting 45 mins everyday to and from school was becoming too hard for me so I came to Terra to see if my credits would transfer, and they did! I love it at Terra and I have made a lot of friends. The teachers are there for you and want to help you succeed. My academic advisor is wonderful and has gone out of her way to make my schedule easy on me with my full-time job. The only negative I would have to say is that I haven't been able to receive much help in trying to receive financial aid, but that, they say, you should do on our own. Other than that, this school is for me.

One Word: Small – Terra Community College has a high amount of resources for its size. There are many comfortable places to hang out, like the Student Activity Center with a small fitness center, large gym, and a few social games. There have been a few instances in which I could not find what I was looking for in the library. However, the newly renovated Liberal Arts building is particularly impressive, which contains anything a music student could ask for, and has many performances and programs throughout the year.

Accurately Titled – As a community college, flexibility is expected, and Terra doesn't disappoint. There were only minor hassles in the new scheduling computer system, and my major has a rather small(although very good) program, so there is little flexibility for music core classes. However, all my other classes are very flexible. I'm also a first-year student, so I've yet to see how well the credits will transfer.

Impressive for It's Type – Terra state, at least as far as community colleges, is about as good as it gets. Though I am not sure about my major anymore, they really know what they are talking about. Even I can tell that anyone can get an excellent start here, as long as they work for it. Terra's motto, "Start here...go anywhere," is well-deserved.

We have a brand new skilled trades lab with state of the art equipment. The instructors are wise in the major fields and somehow tend to each persons ability to learn. Workloads are not back breaking and are broken down step by step making learning alot easier.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Finacial Aid – The process at Terra is quite simple. It doesnt rack your brain or frustrate you. The personel in the offices are very informative and will sit you you an guide you step by step to get you through it very quickly and accuratley.

My College Experience – My school seems to differ from most of your local community colleges. It doesnt matter what school you came from or how you look, were all there for the same reason. We help each other out. We lend out books if needed. Something you just really dont see in a big university. Its like were one happy giant learning family.

At this point, I have to say I am not sure what the college offers after graduation.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I have found this process to be a little confusing. Financial Aid office has always answered my questions, but not always felt it was clarified. This could also be due to the fact that I am new at this.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
