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.

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.
I've been attending Forsyth Technical Community College for about 2 years now, the campus is nice. For a community college, it is a lot better than expected. The Professors are very enthusiastic about their job and are willing to help anyone in any way possible. They are always trying to get students to join many campus activities since people don't generally live on campus, the student gov. goes above and beyond to reach its students. The college's prices for classes at a community college are about average, you can find most of the books required for the courses in the bookstore, Chegg, or on Amazon. One of the issues I have is the parking situation, most students have to park so far away from the buildings while it seems like there is an endless amount of spaces near the buildings labeled with the word "staff".
