Trident Technical College Reviews
I went to Trident Tech after struggling with the financial pressures of a four-year private school. Don't sleep on this community college. The teachers are very approachable and kind. They care about what they teach; they aren't slack in their teaching, but they will work with you and be considerate. Trident online classes are life savers for students with busy personal lives and work schedules. The students at Trident build relationships and create communities that I struggled to find at my four-year school. Trident is also affordable, which is a major benefit. Go to this school if you are looking to stay out of debt, make friends, understand what's going on with your education, and be successful!
Trident Technical College is a terrific school so far, with amazing people working for them! I rarely ever have troubles with things, and when I do, they are always willing to help and do whatever it takes to help! The only thing that I would like to see improve is their website! There is SO much stuff on their website that it gets kind of confusing to navigate! I think if they just added more drop down sections with related things grouped together, it might be a little better and easier to navigate through! Other than that, I would recommend Trident Technical College to everyone!
If you are a person who is frightened of entering a 4-year institution, along with the financial costs and not knowing what major you want to pursue, then you are not alone. I was in the same boat. All my life I was told to go to a university. As I grew up and evaluated my options, I looked at technical colleges like Trident Technical College which I ended up applying to. The first reason was cost and secondly, to understand what it meant to be a college student. When you transition from a high school student to a college student, the change is extremely significant. You must take your learning to a whole another level and understand your material inside and out like your job which is how Trident Technical College operate. This school will give you the foundation of the career you want to pursue. They will hand you the tools, but at the end of the day, it is your responsibility to handle and master them on your own.
