My experience with Thomas Nelson Community College has been positive. Class content has been great but it is the professors that have made the experience so enjoyable. They pour into the students and give much of their time and effort to ensure their success. They are easily accessible through phone, text, or email. The campus is clean and easy to navigate. The library is large and well kept. I enjoy working in the TNCC library because it is quiet, the knowledgeable librarians are helpful, and the resources available are immense. The school also has a great arts program with performances that are exciting to attend and be a part of.

Thomas Nelson is a pretty fantastic 2-year college I started going to when I was a Junior. It has a pretty cool campus, and overall it's nice. One change I would like to see is cleaner hallways. They just need to be mopped more. Then it would be great!
I have had good luck with Thomas Nelson. I previously graduated from a four year university, and now I am going back to school to get a nursing degree. I have really enjoyed my program, and my instructors have been great. It is apparent that they care about the students and their success. Administration is sometimes disorganized, but if you are persistent then you can get everything accomplished that you need to. The school is very cost effective. The only issue I have is the two book packages that I have had to purchase through the school have been priced outrageously. I spent almost $1,800 on books in one year. When I went to my four year college, I spend that in more like two or three years (and I was taking many more classes).
