I liked Tacoma Community College because of the people I've had the chance to meet. A lot of my classmates and teachers have assisted me with achieving my academic goals by offering me plenty of advice. I've been able to form a study group with a new set of people during most quarters, and everyone here seems to have some story to share. The college hands out a lot of food during the beginning and end of the quarters as well.

I won't say that everything about my experience here was positive. I was given a ticket for not purchasing a new parking pass for the school year, so I moved my car to a parking lot closer to where I could purchase one from the cashier's office. I come back to find I was fined for the same reason, in the same hour. I explain this to security and fill out a waiver. Not only was my request to have my second fine waived declined, but the second ticket cost double the first ticket.

In general, I love TCC. I love the campus, most of the events, most of culture, and a lot of the teachers. Bad teachers exist, sure, but thanks to places like RateMyProfessor, it's easy to find good ones, and there are a ton of them who have a real passion for what they do and are great at showing us their passion through their teaching. The culture is pretty diverse, people of many different groups and cultural backgrounds coming together. A lot of the students are pretty nice and friendly there, and in general, it creates a really nice atmosphere. The campus is also beautiful for a community college, the environment being very green, almost as if it were built with the environment in mind. It's a wonderful place, and I'll definitely miss it when I move on.
This is my second community college and it is better then I could have expected! Although I believe classes are a little harder, they are more involved and I am learning more then I ever have! The campus is beautiful since all the buildings are fairly new. A few complications have occurred since the school got a whole new system online... but they have been very apologetic for the inconvenience and teachers have worked around the problems. The student center is one of my favorite aspects of the school. It is where almost everyone hangs out in between classes. There are TVs, ping pong tables, a delicious cafeteria, and lots of seating for everyone. Also, as a player on the women's soccer team, I have realized how well they treat their athletes! All athletes always have an advisor at hand and get to sign up for our classes a weak early in order to accommodate our sport schedule with our school schedule. Overall, this school has been a great experience for me!
