It is a really great place! Truth is you can learn as much as you want to learn, the professors make it very clear "you're paying for this class, not me". Everyone can get a D or C in the classes but those who want to learn will be earning A's. The professors genuinely care and it is nice having teachers who are rooting for you. Many of the student's are brilliant and some of the high school students are some of the most intelligent people I have met. In conclusion, Durham Technical Community College is a good place and disregard anyone who tells you otherwise. As for employers and colleges, please give these students a chance! It should not matter where they are coming from but where they will go and how hard working and determined they were to strive in a small environment. I love this campus and forever will root loudly for the college when I transfer; no matter it be in a small college like UNC or a prestigious University like Harvard.

Durham Tech is very affordable, its education is just as good as it would be at any other institution. All the teachers I've had are very good at what they teach, they're very organized with their material which is helpful to the students. Durham Tech also provides very good services in general, they have a food bank, which also gives feminine products for anyone there. They offer financial advice for everybody as well, which I found very helpful. One thing they could work on is getting the students more informed on what is happening on the campus and keeping us up to date on time.
I really enjoy the Occupational Therapy Assistant program faculty! They are absolutely amazing! I also enjoy the atmosphere of the college. The Student Government Organization really tries to make sure that all of the students feel welcome and that they participate in the campus activities. The only thing I would like to see change would be bringing the food truck back to the other side of the campus. the students may only have a small break to run across the street stand in line in the cafe and get something to eat. Also the food truck offered different food choices than the cafe.
