SUNY Tompkins Cortland Community College Reviews
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.
Overall, Tompkins Cortland provides a fantastic stepping stone to the future. In terms of academics, Tompkins Cortland benefits from the surrounding colleges (Cornell and Ithaca College) and has access to a number of their resources and professors. Additionally, it is seen as a low-cost option to those looking to begin their college career without taking the full financial plunge. It further benefits from being part of the SUNY network. Unfortunately, the low-cost label also brings the somewhat true stereotype of lower academic standards (certainly when compared to other local 4-year schools). But overall, Tompkins Cortland is a great place to begin a degree or get a jumpstart on a career.
For me, life is about the journey, not the destination. If you want to live a real college experience including a great social scene, this college would not be my first pick if I were you. The scene is mostly low income based city kids and not many students are interested in getting to know each other. You can tell the dorm staff make attempts (small and very rare attempts) at puting together social activities, but even these activities are mediocre at best. Maybe I'm comparing my experience here too much to what my friends experience at their 4-year universities, but I feel there has to be a better school with a more vibrant social scene and a staff that puts more effort into making sure students stay connected and interested. Anyone that dorms on campus would tell you they're bored and can't wait to get out. Other than that the professors and staff are nice and serious about their professions.
