I loved my experience with online courses! I love being able to do the work/class on my time and not having to worry about scheduling classes around eachother; I'm able to make my own schedule. The workload is just like that of a traditonal classroom, sometimes even less. The disscusion board is great because we get to talk with our students and professors through it. Some online courses you also still doing group work/project, which can me tricky at times but it can be done! An overall grey experience with my online courses. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to take one!
Review Tidewater Community College
Tidewater Community College, has helped me develop time managing skills; my teacher's have been great thus far. I have been challenged and pushed to reach my fullest potential and have even surprised myself with all that I have accomplished. I will constantly choose TCC until I graduate, there is help everywhere you turn, you just have to ask for it. The staff has been exceptional! I have really enjoyed my five semesters at TCC and have just two left but I am grateful that I chose this school!
After graduating from Maury High School, located in Norfrolk, VA, I was highly motivated on moving on to college. I soon realized that going into a four-year university was going to be expensive, so I decided to go straight to Tidewater Community College on the Norfolk Campus. On my first day, I was a little timid on meeting new people, especially my professors, but I have learned to pull through my fears. My experience in Tidewater Community is quite enjoyable because it has open space and is surrounded by plenty of buildings, stores, malls, and restaurants to choose from. Although there will be times when I am struggling to complete some schoolwork, their library is one of the greatest places to go. Overall, I have been enjoying my time here at Tidewater Community College.
