TCC is an awesome school, especially if you are a new or returning student. Student life at TCC is really great with events and activities held throughout the year. There is a lot of diversity amongst the students and professors which in my personal opinion, makes class discussions more of a learning experience. The only thing I would recommend TCC taking the time to fix would be the financial aid office only because they take a while to get back to you or different people will tell you different things. However, I have noticed this last quarter they have been much better about returning emails etc.

I was a Running Start student here for two years, and I loved the campus. Finding classes that fit my schedule was relatively easy, and the other students on the campus were very helpful as well. Many of the classes are ten minutes apart, and the campus is not too big to the point where you can not get from one end of the campus to the other. The staff and security are friendly as well, and the campus throws fun events for the students to enjoy throughout the year. The welcoming committee is very friendly as well.
It is a good start for low-income, yet aspecting students. As a new resident to Washington, Tacoma community college has been very welcoming and friendly. Campus is really big for a community college and buildings are quite old. Professors I have had so far are wonderful. The library does not have much selection but there is a good amount of computers to use. Parking is a big issue but overall the campus is safe. Decent first quarter of college for me.
