My experience at TSTC West Texas Sweetwater has been AWESOME! Enrollment for classes is very easy and they walk you through the whole process. The staff actually talk to you, the student, instead of to the parent and you getting the information interpreted by your parent. They make you feel very welcome right from the beginning! You're also roomed in the pods (dorms) with a person who is taking similar classes as you, so it's nice to have someone right next door to help you study or relate to. The Sweetwater campus is very spread out, but there is always someone around to give you ride from one side of the campus to the other or to help you find where you need to go. I'm in the Automotive program and my instructor is awesome. His classes are very hands on & he's always willing to help you in whatever you need. This is a very personable college and makes you feel like you're right at home! I've definitly made some life long friends here!

The teachers are fantastic! They are very knowledgeable and are willing to pass on that knowledge and actually care to. For each program, there are three classes on the major and one class for general education. classes are normally between ten to twenty-five people and the style is laid back, yet serious when it comes to lecture and learning.
I have learned so much about computers from hardware to learning how hackers steal information. I am more towards Cyber Security and want to eventually start my own Penetration company so to help people not become victims to these sociopath thieves. The teachers are great and are dedicated to helping us out, no matter what, and never give up on us. Workload can be a tad much in the third semester, but was able to complete the work. Facilities are very nice and kept up for the benefits of the students. Internships are granted and given the last semester and jobs are offered from everywhere and TSTC works very hard to help you get one.
