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.

If a person is looking for the same education, convenience with work, home and less expense , then this is for you. They have so much to offer when it comes to student life which makes you feel connected without dorm life which is amazing. My first year at Thomas Nelson was bliss. The overall staff was so helpful. The overall staffing has changed from then until now though. These are the current changes I’d like to see, the head advisors of certain degrees should not control what your desired degree is, they are to encourage you and have advice or opinions but not their own agenda. Also, they do the surveys for the professors which is great but, I believe that they should do it for the overall TNCC staff to see the whole picture not just a portion. The staff should not just look at it as just a job or a school to give education but it is much more than that, it all starts with motivation, a good foundation, good information and support to push towards success.
I have throughly enhoyed going to Thomas Nelson Community College for the last few months. The campus is very clean, and most of the staff seems to always be in a fantastic mood. Just like every college, there will be professors that people will struggle with but for the most part, all of the professors seem to really care about their students. There are many areas where students can sit and take a break, study, or event just hang out with friends while waiting for another class. I would not change anything because I have been very satisfied with everything that I have seen so far in my college journey.
