Being a student at Thomas Nelson, I have had wonderful professors and the staff has been very helpful as well. I had transferred to Thomas Nelson from another community college and I was able to transfer with no hassle and the academic department even accepted my credits from the previous school. The main campus is small and the buildings are close together which is nice and there is always security driving around. They also have food vendor trucks during lunch in case you don't want Subway or you don't have time to run somewhere to grab fast food elsewhere.

Most professors are willing to work with you & prepare you for a university and beyond. They are also very understanding when it comes to balancing college with life and are aware of the situation most students are in, they also provide many resources that help with conflict students might face while in college, as well as encouraging students to have a healthy balance between college & life.
For the most part the teachers are great! Very understanding and drive you to do your best. There are a select few that don't seem to understand the job of teaching. The college staff/factulty other than the teachers are very helpful.
