Three Rivers was an interesting place to start off my college years. I spent 4 years there. The first year I had no idea what I was doing, or rather I thought I knew what I wanted. Until I had a class called Architecture of the World (highly recommended) which lead me down the Architecture path. I earned my Associate's in Architectural Design Technology by my third year and the next year I earned 4 certificates on top of that. This school is worth it, it's also worth the money you save from not going to a 4 year college to take the exact same classes. There were some downsides- as a club president there were some student politics that were both stressful and unnecessary. And the parking lot is at times obnoxious- a word to the wise: the first month of classes you will need to park in the back lot (also referred to as Narnia) there will be no parking in the front lot areas but after that month parking gets increasingly better.
Review Three Rivers Community College - Connecticut
Certain teachers are a little unrealistic with workload and take their time getting grades back to students. Some professors don't even have estimated grades for students so you don't even know how you're doing until the semester ends! One professor waits until the last minute to tell materials needed for class and tests students on things she hasn't gone over in lectures and aren't in the book. Inadequate student teachers. On the flip side, some teachers go above and beyond to help you if you need it. The school overall is okay. Just be careful which professor you choose.
The professors were passionate about what they taught and extremely helpful towards students who had trouble (including myself). One of my favorite courses was the First Year Experience course because it taught me how to study in college as opposed to high school. It also helped me work better in groups. Following that semester I earned straight A's until I graduated. I was also inducted into an honors society.

To incoming students, I highly recommend taking first year experience your first semester. It's really helpful.

I also recommend joining clubs, especially if you want to get out of your comfort zone and meet new people. I made a good number of friends by joining a few clubs on campus.
