SUNY Tompkins Cortland Community College Reviews
People will try to steer you away from community colleges, but Tompkins Cortland Community College is amazing. They have so many opportunities, work studies, clubs, activities, scholarships and internships. The professors are wonderful, as well as the faculty. They have a tutoring center that is very helpful, a nice library with lots to choose from, places to go and hide so you can study, and fun hang out places. You do not have to share your dorm room with anyone and they come with a big bathroom and kitchen area. This is a fantastic college and saves the student a lot of money as well!
Tompkins Cortland is, in my opinion, the best college for any student who is nervous about going to college. All the professors and staff members are so generous and kind, they're always willing to talk and help you with anything you need. The college also offers free tutoring and health care in the health center. One thing I love most about Tompkins Cortland Community College is that it is widely diverse. In just my first year there I have met so many people from other countries such as Spain and Jamacia! Every dorm is an apartment style, which provides each student with privacy and a bit of their own space. Campus police are active on campus 24/7 and are always making an effort to get to know the students on campus.
Tompkins Cortland Community College has given me the intimate studying environment, and personal guidance from faculty to allow me to gain confidence in what I want to make of my life. The school is full of passionate professors, who chose their jobs due to their desire to see young scholars succeed, and that sentiment is palpable with each lecture I attend. For a smaller 2 year school, they have a vast array of student resources that provide all Tc3 students with any and all academic tools they could require. The college operates consistently at the highest standard and is a phenomenal stepping stone for all young scholars looking to save money in the pursuit of a 4 year degree, as well as receive a meaningful education in the process, and enter their third year of college with direction and a thorough understanding of their field of study.
