I've currently attend TCC, and in the kinesiolgy program. The school is very supportive with many resources to help students in the classroom and outside. The professors and staff are wonderful and understanding and try to help in any way they can. I attend the northeast campus. I have nothing bad to say about TCC.

Tarrant County is an incredibly safe place to live. There are rare reports of robberies or suspicious activity, and I have not heard of anything beyond a few coyote sightings and one car hijacking in the few years I've lived here. The houses are very pretty and well-built, and one of the best IB-certified school districts is here as well. There are plenty of convenient shops around and several good colleges available.
