Trident is a very positive environment to be in! All of the staff is very helpful and friendly! All of my peers are also very positive to be around. All of the professors are very easy to talk to and very understanding. The campus is very easy to navigate and get to classes in a timely manor. I would 10/10 recommend TTC to anyone looking to attend a local community college. I also like how it is a judge free zone. My professors and peers do not judge anyone around them and are very nice and helpful. Trident is truly amazing! Such a good environment!

They have multiple campuses, so it is so convenient to go to class. The professors for the most part are more understanding that what I've experienced and will give an honest effort to help!
I have had such a great experience at Trident Tech. I started with prerequisites and from the beginning, I had such supportive and caring teachers. I am now in the nursing program, and although it is the toughest thing I've ever done, it is wonderful! I feel confident knowing I am in a program where the teachers REALLY care!
