Assisted by Another Veteran That Helped – Some who assisted me looked at me and not what I could become once educated.

It's Close to Home With a Friendly Staff (Most of the Times) – The size of the college makes everything easily accessable and it has avarities of thing going on.

I have been attending TRCC off and on as a part time and full time student since August 1988. I have earned one degree already and one certification there. The student body is very diverse. You will see as many recent HS grads as you do adult students who have families and jobs who are looking to make a career change or get more educattion for a better paying position with their current employer.

Success Starts at TRCC! I am a returning adult college student who is pursuing an RN degree. I have been in the medical field for 16 years and decided to return to college to obtain my degree. I am currently enrolled at TRCC taking nursing classes and I have applied to a local Career Center for their LPN program which starts August 2012. I will do the LPN to RN bridge program at TRCC after becoming licensed as an LPN. Barring any unforseen problems, I will graduate from LPN school at the end of Juky 2013. I also work full time and will have to continue to work throughout LPN school and RN school as well. TRCC has evening and on line courses which allow me to work and even take classes from my home which is a great feature.

Career Center – I've only actually seen one part of what the career center can do. While at the hospital with my grandpa, I noticed students working with the doctors and nurses. It appears that in the medical field the career center is very efficient.

Partial Online Course – I have a math course and we do most of our work online but we also have classroom time that goes over the work we do. I like online work because I feel like I have more time to do my homework. We have a decent amount of homework but I've never felt like we were assigned too much. It was really easy to register for this class. My professor is very nice and the in class time that we receive gives us a good amount a peer-to-peer interaction.

New Designated Smoking Areas – The campus just administered new smoking areas. I really like this because I don't have to walk through a cloud of smoke while trying to walk through the front doors to get to my classes. This makes me feel better because I have severe allergy problems. I also like that the campus is taking it very seriously. Anyone caught violating the new rules will be fined $25.00.

After Graduation – This community college has a few larger universities working to provide Bachelors Degrees now. I think this is great since I won't have to travel 100 miles to the nearest one.

No Online Classes for Me – I'm a music ed. student...no online classes since I have to be there all the time...and I love it! I have heard the music appreciation online class is difficult.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Be Patient – The Financial Aid process at TRCC is a pain, but I suspect it would be at other colleges as well. I did get help with the scholarships and A+ program but it does take awhile to get any money due back...so be patient. That's my advice to new students.

Help With Transfer – I go to a community college, and their main goal is making sure you have the credits you need to transfer to a university. They aid in advising what classes to take and transferring.

Feels Like a Warm Community – On the first day, students were welcomed with donuts and bottled water!
The staff are there to help and cater to the student's needs. The librarians help you sift through shelves to find what you need, and they guide you through the online data bases if you ask. The classes are small enough for the professors to get to know their students to aid them in their learning.
There are always things to take part in! Once a month the college has a movie night, where students see a newly released DVD with free snacks. The Spanish Club hosts events to spark the interest of South American culture, (Spoiler Alert: Mexican Food.) There was a "Halloween Safe Zone" for children and students to eat candy and win door prizes. On Veteran's Day there is a college USO Dance. The Tinnin Theatre has many plays and acts to watch as well. There's even a Talent Show this spring!
If you're part of the Student Services you get to sign up for campus tours through the year and they give you a tee shirt with a few things for school. They have seminars on financial aid, transfer information, and study skills.
There are also constant emails to remind you of deadlines, new library materials, and events going on campus.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The drawback is that financial aid don't apply until midway through the semester. This puts added stress on as those of us who are barely surviving have a hard time getting what we need for classes, including transportation to and from the college.

Online Classes – I love taking classes online. It's much easier for me to take them online because I can do the work whenever I feel like it. Getting up early and going on campus is not necessarily when I'm thinking the most clearly, and having flexibility is really nice. The disadvantages are that it's more difficult to receive help from your instructors, and you don't get any peer interaction.

About Community College – I'm somewhat happy with Three Rivers. I chose it because it was one of the few local colleges, it is reasonably priced, and I had heard good things about the nursing program I'm entering. If there was a better college readily available to me, I would be happy to pay slightly higher tuition for a more prestigious degree. Altogether, I'd rather be going to a state university, but community college does have its benefits.

Good Job TRCC – Our computer network is pretty good. Some classes do require them and computers are usually available.

Class Scheduling Possibilities – the college catalogue gives you the course requirements needed to be completed for degree and and future transferable degrees. The sticker is, you may not be-able to set up your classes in a convenient timely manner.

Small Rooms, Small Student Count, Informative Instructions – Technical instructors are informative about subjects and the local employers

Great Staff – The staff at Three Rivers Community College has great staff that is always ready to help when needed and are always friendly and meeting your needs

My School – My school has activity wing which is a great stress reliever. This wing has about 7-8 different rooms where you can find activities of all nature. There is a game room, work out room, and other clubs and activity meeting rooms. These rooms have great view of play area which allows you to work out and see children play in there play area.
As a Web-design student I spend extensive hours in the school's computer lab and when writing programs for some WebPages get frustrating, I sometimes have to walk away from my computer. In such a case I enjoy going to activity rooms and relieve my stress.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
