Durham Technical Community College Reviews

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 Your 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 have had an online instructor in the past who got a little TOO creative with her assignments, and it left me opening up tab after tab, and going on a hunt for assignments and attachments to assignments. I dropped that class! I have had other teachers however who are very straightforward, and make the assignments easily accessible, and predictable. I think predictability is important with an online course, as a set schedule is the easiest way for me to foresee that I have arranged my time to be able to complete the assignments each week.
