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
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!
I absolutely love John Tyler! I am curently a senior in highschool and have been taking classes at Tyler this school year to get ahead in my career. I have been loving my classes and the learning environment that they take place in. Their Advising Center and councilers have been a great help to me through my slow transition from high school to college.
