Texas College Reviews
Texas College is a historically black university butis very diverse. They offer an array of services geared to anyone who desires a degree. School is offered at different times for those individuals with different needs. Traditional students can go to school during the day or evening. Then you have the Success Students, whose classes are offered during the evening for the working adults. This program allows that individual who desires to go back to school but also has to work to take care of their family. There is no age limit in going back to school so there are those students who are in there 70s in class with the 20 year olds. Everyone is so encouraging and uplifting to everyone. You feela sense of pride and motivation to keep pushing toward your dream of becoming a college graduate
Over all my Texas College experience was good, some staff could have been better, the professors are either to serious or don't care enough, the activities could be so much better, especially if approval wasn't based on favoritism. The campus has so much potential, I just wish enough people cared enough to put the work in or even listen to what other have in store for their HBCU.
Texas College is a HBCU, my professors and peers are great people. We are the oldest HBCU in East Texas. Our sport facilities could use more space, for example, we need more than one gym on our campus. Or a on campus football field would be great for our football players, therefor when we play teams we no longer have to visit the high school stadium. Updated computers would be a great, we can access more things.
