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.
I love how cheap the Classes are and the teachers are really wonderful. They try their best to work with every student and their situations.
Durham Tech is a small school, and I think that is an asset to its students. Class sizes are small, and students can receive better one-on-one instruction and extra help. There are plenty of opportunities for extra help, like peer tutoring, the tutoring center, etc. The teachers are excellent, but the quality of students is hit or miss. My biggest complaint it that parking can be difficult.

Durham Tech is a great school. My two years here was amazing. I'm happy I picked this university to complete my associates in science degree.
Durham Tech is a good school. I enjoyed all of the instructors I had before going into the ADN program.
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.
I am currently in a 2 year dental hygiene program that I love. The hands on experience provides great opportunities for students to expand within the field and to further education.
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.
In the fall of 2015 as an upcoming college freshman, there were many things I had questions about. Once I met with my advisor she was able to answer almost every question I had and gave me the way advice as to what classes to take. This is currently my second semester at Durham Tech and I am going in the right path thanks to my advisor. The size of the classrooms are a helpful factor for students like me who like communicating with my professor.
The school transfers most of your credits with out any problems
I think the online course are great. I can contact the professors and any of my classmates quickly and efficiently.
The school advisers are their to help their student make smooth transitions into Senior or post graduate institutions.
The professors will help you if you bug the mess out of them, but other than that you are on your own when it comes to finding job opportunities
I like the courses as a whole. I do feel that the professors grade us on details of an assignment that have no relation to the class.
I feel that my professors could be a bit more helpful in explaining the concepts of the lessons I have to learn instead of them rushing through the lessons.
The school is very helpful and the staff wan their students to succeed.
As long as I've been coming here, it's been easy to pick class times and days that lined up with the schedule of everyone else in my house in order to line up transportation.

There's a lot more work than I anticipated, and it's harder to get through on my own. I wanted to take the class as a seated class to help with understanding and application, but it was only being offered as an online class when I needed to register.
Out of the 8 teachers I've had so far at this college, there was only one professor who I didn't like. Very nice professors, different teaching styles, but willing to go out of their way to help students understand. The courses are hard, but it's possible to make all As if you apply yourself
Only 25 minutes from my house, offers a 2-year associates program that I want to do, nice teachers, good resources on campus.
