Forsyth Technical Community College Reviews

Forsyth Technical Community College offers a large variety of courses. I really enjoyed attending this school because it had small class sizes, and most teachers were very approachable. One thing I would like to see change is the quality of the teachers employed. Although most teachers are good, there are several that never communicate with their students, and do not properly teach the material. Also, I would like for Forsyth Technical Community College to start offering more types of Associate's Degrees to students enrolled in early college programs.
Review Forsyth Technical Community College
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.
So far my experience at Tech has been okay, not amazing, but not awful. I go to two local campuses, the Stokes Early College and Northwest Center instead of the main campus, which is very convenient if you don't live in/near Winston. Forsyth Tech professors don't like to see failure, really care about your success in their classes and are very understanding, which I really appreciate. Tech is great for anyone who's transferring to a university like NC State because their courses match up perfectly so you can be sure your credits will transfer.
