I think Tacoma Community College is an excellent starting or returning point for anybody interested in further pursuing education. It has given me a chance to explore some fields for a relatively cheap price. I personally am planning on transferring to a four year and found starting at TCC has been a cheaper alternative than to immediately head into a four-year university.

TCC has sufficient resources for their students such as a dedicated writing and tutor center, confidential advising, a growing food pantry for students who may have food insecurities, and a library with access to numerous databases. TCC also has a fairly diverse student body, all coming from various walks of life and bringing their own insights to the classroom thus creating a dynamic and unique learning environment.

Overall I like this school. The buildings are easy to find on-campus if you need help with finding something; anyone is willing to help you whether it's a student or a staff member. The professors want you to learn and help you succeed. They give you many ways to study and learn the material if you need more help they were willing to work outside of office hours to do so; as well as giving you recommendations for tutors on campus that can also help you.
One problem with this college that I would change is the food as it is not as great as it could be. I believe the college does try to produce the best food but they feed numerous people it's hard to do so. If I could make the food at school different, I would change it to healthy, tasty food with an assortment of types. With healthy tasting food, more people would take advantage of the food. Also, if the food tasted better and had healthier options, less food would be wasted.
What I liked about Tacoma Community college is first it’s big campus. There’s a variety of classes I can take, And many building locations so students aren’t crowded up in one hall or building. Also, the resources are very helpful, such as the writing and tutoring center. That is where you can make an appointment with an individual who knows a certain subject who helps you with things you struggle with; it part of your tuition so It is beneficial to use it since you already paid for it. Lastly, the campus is always clean, neat, and has green grass.
