My time at Roane State Community College has been a positive one. It’s offered me an opportunity to begin my engineering degree for less cost than a university, and in a smaller setting, allowing for more face-time with my teachers.
The Oak Ridge campus where I attend is modern, clean, and beautifully kept. It features a fine library, the learning center with its eager-to-help tutors, computer labs for working on assignments and printing documents, and a number of little nooks for studying.
The professors were quite competent to instruct in their field. Most were very approachable and truly seemed concerned with helping me to succeed.
The classrooms vary from long-distance digital interactive rooms to traditional desk-and-whiteboard classrooms. Each classroom appears to be well-supplied for its subject, including cutting-edge laboratories for all of the sciences.
I'm confident that the education I've received at Roane State is on par with what I would have received at a university.

I was a student between 2017 to 2019. I obtained my AA degree while attending there and my overall experience was good. I only went to two campuses because the campuses were divided along the counties and I did not have the time an money to travel, however I got most of my classes where I lived, which I liked greatly. The faculty was helpful and the teachers were professional and helpful. The diversity there was limited with me seeing only a couple of minority students. The campuses were clean and up-to-date with them upgrading the classrooms in 2018. Athletics was not a big thing because it was a community college. Parties was not a big thing as well.
Although I didn't really put myself out there to make friends, the environment was wonderful. Every staff member and professor that I had was willing to work with you and make sure that your experience was 100%. The cost was manageable and commuting wasn't terrible. Homework was not overbearing and the school really cared about the student's success and well being. They had a food pantry and also somewhere to help out in small businesses. My branch didn't really have a cafeteria, but I think that was the only downside.
