As a commuter, I went to class every day with the intent to put headphones in and get work done, not to make friends. There are a lot of places to hide and get work done comfortably. The atmosphere is super laid back and a lot of the teachers put a lot of time and effort into their teachings and students. The advisement isn't the best when it comes to personality. A lot of impatience and rudeness. However what they lack in kindness they make up for in student resources. And the school has partnerships with other universities leaving a lot of academic, transfer and study abroad opportunities. Most professors are adjuncts from SUNY Cortland, Ithaca, Syracuse, and Cornell. So as far as class difficulty it really just depends on which professor you have and whether or not they care. Decently priced and a small campus that is easy to navigate. A lot of kids from the city.
Review SUNY Tompkins Cortland Community College
TC3 made me realize what I have to do to achieve my goal. It's a wake up call towards life. It's unique because there's so many resources that can help you pass your classes. As a nursing major, the technology is pretty up there. TC3 provides oppurtunity to achieve where you want to be at!
Overall it's a decent school. You need a car to go to everywhere. Food is okay it can be better. 8 meal plans a week kinda suck but it's because are dorms come with kitchens I guess. Social activities and clubs are good and very interactive. The school can be boring sometimes but they also have plenty events to to keep students engaged and have fun. The people are alright, but most come from Brooklyn, I made plenty of friends though and city kids are everywhere anyways. Basically like high school. The staff are helpful and really nice. Classes sizes are normal unless is like a seminar or something. Other than that TC3 is a alright school overall.
