My experience with John Tyler Community College was really solid, the class time and hours were very flexible with my work schedule, the professors that I had during my time at the school, showed great teaching skills and a passion to teach the class. I really appreciated the fact that the college was a community college, simply because I prefer smaller class sizes, this allowed me to create a better student to professor relationship, and if I needed help I wouldn't feel like I was just another student. The campus was very easy to find my way around the school with only having no more then three levels to find my way around the school, which was good. There library was always open to use and it was quite as well so it made the ideal place for studying. The school offered plenty of parking so finding a place to park your car was never really an issue and everything was close by. I do wish they still offered some of the older programs and certifications that once previously had.
My experience thus far at John Tyler Community college has been stressful to say the least. As you all may know college is no walk in the park and dealing with a multitude of classes is definitely a constant reminder. Throughout the years of attending college i have come to the the realization that no one is going to care more about your educational success than you. Therefore, I try to make every lesson learned at John Tyler a valuable one that can be applied to the real world. Hopefully in the near future they'll be more advocates that want to see each and every student who applies to college make it through and graduate. Until then I will stand for the cause because you shouldn't have to put your goals of graduating aside due to financial inconveniences.
