I like the programs offered there. Professors are a hit or miss, but most of them are amazing people who want to help you learn and succeed as long as you try.
That it is a community college located in Winston Salem , NC. close to my community. A two year college and one of the largest in the North Carolina Community College System, with an enrollment of over 11,000 credit students and over 24,000 Corporate and Continuing Education students.
I like that the courses offering you general education requirements. You can then transfer to a four-year university to finish your bachelor's degree.
Forsyth Technical Community provides an open door to college that is vital for many young people and that can rarely be duplicated by four-year institutions; they reach a far more diverse group of students than do most four-year .
I love my classes. My instructors were always effective they strive to motivate and engage all the students in learning rather than accepting some students to do poorly. Took up time with each student and believed every one is capable of achieving success.
The teachers really take interest in their students. They actively engage the students in helping with future career goals, letting them know of any opportunities such as internships or study abroad activities that become available.

Very good school, with online and in person classes. Professors are very helpful and materials are easily available if you need help. Getting help with tutoring for any class is very easy, all professors and tutors are willing to help if they are asked. The overall environment of the school is great. The campus is easy to navigate and easy to understand. Overall this school is great to start on your associates degree!
I enjoyed community. I enjoyed the open communication they have on campus, and how the staff will reach to the students to offer help. The campus overall is a safe environment. They have campus police that will hep people in need and direct them to the right place .
The school has good programs and 24/7 free tutoring for anyone who seeks out the extra help. The counseling sector within the school enhances students overall well being especially when those tough times arise due to the stress of class work and home life. Forsyth nursing in which I am pursuing has excellent peers that push you forward into becoming a successful citizen in whatever career choice you choose . I like the compassion spirit all the staff has when people like myself is seeking to further my education. This is a career goals of mine that am determined to fulfill.
During my time there, the people (staff, professors, ect.) were supportive and helpful. The tutors were great, and my most of my classes I found interesting. The atmosphere is kind of lacking as it isn't very flamboyant though I do realize it is a community college.
My experience with Forsyth Technical Community College has been a good one, the Professors want to see you succeed and give you every opportunity to do so. The academic advisors are great at making sure you get the class you need, as well as give you advice on choosing a academic path towards a career. I would like to see more medical programs offered.
Forsyth Tech is a wonderful school! However, the buildings could use some updates, and the school is known for hiring less than satisfactory teachers. Over my two years at Forsyth Tech, I have had more than my fair share of crappy teachers, and administration is unwilling to do anything about them when complaints are raised. Other than that, they are a very kind and helpful college.
I have been going to Forsyth tech for a while now and it has it's pro's and con's like any other school school honestly. I wish there was more visitor parking because it is so inconvenient having to park so far away to walk to the Allman building for small stuff. And the financial aide office has some people that are working there that aren't to friendly but they are very helpful in assisting you with all of your needs.
Forsyth Technical Community College was the college I went to for dual enrollment. I found the classes to be almost too easy compared to my regular high school classes.
I appreciated how all of the instructors I had at Forsyth Tech genuinely had the best interest of the student. The parking is also pretty good. For only $30 for 1 year, you can park moderately close to your building.
I think Forsyth Tech could have better food available for students to purchase. They have a grill, but it simply was not very inviting.
Forsyth Tech was rather quick with most processes that had to be done concerning application, registration, or any other document processing.
I like how the school provides many resources for their students and make it a priority to see their students succeed. I would like to see an improvement in their parking situation. There is often limited parking and far away from classroom locations.
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".
As an adult learner I am enjoying the convenience of online classes which works best with my lifestyle and full time job. The online classes are very structured and I am learning as if I was in a classroom setting.
i would like to see the leadership to change at this college. The people running things don't tend to know whats going on them selves.
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.
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.

Forsyth Tech is just a typical community college. There is a very large student body. It seems that at least half of the student body only do what they have to do to graduate. The other half, or possibly even less, actually strive to do their best. This can sometimes create a learning environment that is subpar. The academics and professors are pretty typical for community college standards, although a few professors do go above and beyond. There is not much school spirit on campus and not much to do either. There are a few school clubs, but they are not advertised well.
Forsyth Tech is a great college that fosters an excellent learning environment. The campus is beautiful. The instructors are knowledgeable and work with students to attain educational success. There is a communal atmosphere that integrates academic and practical learning through local internships, practicums, and clinical settings, that in many cases translate to job placement or futher educational studies.
It's nice but freshman year is difficult. I'm still very confused on how it all works. Great teachers though.
