The most thats stands out that I have noticed is that at TCC "Success is TRUELY within Reach", because of their academic advisors,counselors, staff, faculty are like stepping stones in Helping/Directing Current/Future TCC students achieve their Educational Goals and REACH their dreams. Though, if one's putting forth the work and a little effert into one's education, The Skies Could Be Actually their LImit!
Review Tarrant County College
I would like to see professors be more compassionate towards students, specifically non-traditional students. Professors should realize that many people attending college have families and being a little lenient to help students will not cost them anything. I have seen many callous professors that do not care when situations arise in their students lives, and give no leeway to work with students whatsoever. That should not be the case. Some intentionally make things harder than they have to be. For that professor, it is just a grade they are giving you, a number on a piece of paper, but for the student it could be your livelihood. The difference between getting into medical school or getting a better paying job to take care of your family. Professors should treat students the way they would have wanted to be treated when they were in school. You never know what a student is going through and a lack of compassion could push someone over the edge.
I am in my second year at Tarrant County College. I have completed 26 credit hours here, and am currently enrolled in 3 math and science classes, totaling to 12 hours this semester. I came with the intent of completing some of my basics and transferring those credits, but instead I am now staying and completing my Associates of Science before transferring for my Bachelors. The teachers I have had are willing to take time to aid you if you need assistance, both inside the classroom and outside via e-mail. Responses are normally very prompt and helpful, and teachers are willing to work with you if it is apparent that your are truly trying in the classes.
