Thomas Nelson Community College Reviews
Online classes were great! My synchronous classes were annually held on zoom and the teachers were great at engaging the students over zoom along with being quick to answer emails effectively. My asynchronous classes were quick with answers as well along with providing an engaging study. Overall, classes were a breeze with the help my professors as well as the effectively prepare course curriculums.
Worked well during quarantine and kept all classes online to avoid spurring new cases. I wish they found solutions to safely hold a couple of classes in person for the students who struggle with online learning. However, they did their best to offer safe after school activities to cheer up the student body. Overall, the online curriculum was taught effectively and the teachers are very helpful as well as quick with responses. The only other issue I could think of is their mandatory student fees that they've been charging for student parking along with other things, (which is ironic since we've yet to use our parking passes since studying from home).
I love Thomas Nelson! (This review will be talking about the Historic Triangle campus) All of the staff are super sweet and helpful, and the teachers are great! The teachers really do a great job of working with the students to make sure that everyone has all of the tools for success. However, I do wish that there was more public transportation to be able to get to Thomas Nelson, for there is none.
