I've only been attending Forsyth Technical Community College since August 2015, but it's great! I had low expectations considering that it's a community college, but it's been enjoyable. I previously came from another college in a different state that I attended for two semesters. My advisor within my program had no problem transferring every one of my credits from my previous college to apply to my Forsyth transcript. I was extremely happy having my credits transfer because that is one of the most difficult issues that a student faces when transferring from one college to another.
Review Forsyth Technical Community College
Again, you can make your workload as heavy or light as you deem necessary. That part is pretty wonderful! As far as the class registration process, it is kind of difficult. I felt like I didn't fully understand it for quite some time. It's good to not be afraid to ask questions. The professors are kind of hit and miss. Some of them are genuinely wonderful people and love teaching. Others are really not there to help you. You can't always go by what some people say about a particular professor, because you don't know their work ethic or what the specific circumstances were when they had that class. I do like the many different programs Forsyth Tech offers. It seems that they have a lot of fundamental programs to prepare you for whichever field of study you plan to continue in.
Forsyth Tech's student body is very disconnected. Because it does not have dormitories and most students commute, the only interaction is in classes or in-between. Everyone has a drastically different schedule, so it is rare to find someone who is in more than one of your classes in a given semester. There are many different ethnicities on campus! Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, you name it, we got it. It's generally accepted to be different. The city we're located in is a very diverse city, so there are many diverse people in it!
