Durham Tech is a good local community college with many opportunities and programs to help students in need with volunteer and staff-run resources to those who qualify and seek it out. Lots of clubs to get involved in. A variety of teachers and classes to choose from, and several programs of general interest intended to either graduate with a certification to immediately start working, or to transfer to a 4-year college/university. Personally, I found some teachers -especially adjuncts- were not favorable, while other teachers were quite amazing.
Review Durham Technical Community College
My current Community College provides an education that has exceeded my expectations. When people speak of Community Colleges, they aren't often taken as seriously as a University. After previously attending an HBCU, I am pleased to say that furthering my education at a Community College was the best decision I've made. The classes are half the size, which gives every student the opportunity to learn at their own pace. This also creates a better working environment for those who have a hard time learning in larger settings. Professors are able to build personal relationships with every student, which I believe is extremely important.
I appreciate the kindness and helpfulness of the staff and some of the faculty I encountered at this school! It offered me some great opportunities that I was able to take advantage of and it allowed me to accomplish my goal of graduating and then transfer to a 4-year school.
