John Tyler Community College Reviews

My overall experience at John Tyler Community was pretty good. Having spent two years at the institution now, I can confidently say that it is a great place for students to begin their transition in to a four-year college/university. I have been able to save an impressive amount of money and pay tuition prices that aren't nearly as high as those found a four-year institution, as well as been able to take the general education classes required to transfer. However, it is still a community college so students don't have the same housing experience and little to no athletics options were really offered through the school. This can be disappointing for some, although there are many club options available for students who have specific interests. Overall, John Tyler is an excellent way to save money and get a head start on a secondary education.
Review John Tyler Community College
I went back to school at age 52 and the transition was bearable. The staff and students helped me feel at ease enough to get grounded and move forward in maintaining a B average after one year. There is a lot of hard work involved, but that's college life!
John Tyler Community College is the first college I have ever attended and I couldn't have asked for a better start. I was given a warm welcome and glided along throughout the entire semester. John Tyler prepared me for the university life very well!
