At Durham Tech. Community College you are able to meet many new friendly people. It is a place where you can give out to the community and learn about the people around you. It a place where you can learn about who you are as a person and see if you are capable to carry on in a four-year university. The professors prepare you to take on harder classes and let you know from their experience that going to Durham Tech. is the best option to learn and save money on your education. Apart from the professors, they sizes of the classes are very small, which makes it much easier to focus and learn what they teach. That is why I thinjk that durham tech is the best option if you are not fully ready to go to a four year college.

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.
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.
