Greenville Technical College is a nice campus. The instructors have all been willing to help me reach my full potential. The classes have been challenging, but they are also passable. My favorite teacher was my English 101 instructor, Rusty Standridge. He taught me the art of arguing the right way. I also learned how to write an interesting argument paper. I actually thought he was going to be a difficult teacher to pass, and I almost dropped his class at the beginning. There was not another Eng. 101 class available for the time I needed, so I went ahead and kept his class. It ended up being the best decision I made. I ended up with an A! Now that I am actually in the Respiratory Therapy program at Greenville Tech., I know all my prequesite classes prepared me. I love this program. The instuctors are very knowledgeable. I would recommend Greenville Technical College to anyone.
