There is a wide varity off programs offered at Tri County and it seems like they try and add something new every year. I am excited that they have added some classes for engineering. All of the professors and instructors are very knowledgable in there field . Some of the classes are bigger than others . For the area I live in , there is only so many types of job fields to get into so some programs are packed and others are very small.

I am actually enrolled in two fields of study, Officce Systems Technology and Cosmetology. The classes are not very big they typically range between seven to 15 students. I like this because you can recieve more interaction from your professors and everyone becomes a family. Tri County Community College offers quiute a bit of programs to be such a little community college. I mean their are the two i am enrolled in along with ones like criminal justice, nursing, welding, childcare, just to name a few. The professors always work with you and make you feel like you are number one. I know that may sound cheesy but I like that kind of attention, it makes me want to excell and be the best that I can be. Another thing I like personally about the professors is that they really push you in a way that makes you want to push yourself as well. My professors have been very understanding about anything and everything. Sometimes they even seem like they are my counselors as well as my friend. I know that there is suppose to be a thin line between teaching and making friends with your students but here at Tri County it seems only natural that they end up becoming way more that a friend. A lot of times it seems more like they are your family.
